UnKamenCast RX! 220: Hail to the Bus Driver, Bus Driver Man

In this episode of the UnKamenCast R! X!, your hosts find out the strange truth of that fateful bus ride with that praiseworthy bus driver.  Aleph makes some comparisons to Kingdom Hearts, Sono prays some revelations stick, and both of them question the narrative utility of making everyone think one of our heroes went back in time to shoot an eight year-old.

UnKamen RX! 219 – This One Ain’t On Decade.

In this episode, Your Humble-adjacent Hosts give Zi-O a bit more of a side-eye because there’s some hinky narrative stuff going on.  Sono hones in on some uglybad victim-blaming, Aleph is excited by Geiz Revive, and a new character doesn’t live up to his potential.

Mostly, it’s just becoming apparent that while many things are certainly Decade’s fault, there’s a lot going on here that has little-to-nothing to do with everyone’s* favorite* over-crossing troublemaker.
