#357: Sean Gets to be Debbie, No Death Star for U.S.

This week as we re-ignite the Disney princess discussion, Sean reaffirms the impracticality of staving off the tidal wave of pink and weighs in on the fun of wearing a sparkly headband while playing backup for a three-year-old rock star. And, we run down the Week in Geek, get a glimpse of the new FX drama The Americans, in which married KGB spies pose as suburban Americans in early-80’s Washington, D.C.; lament the cancellation of the excellent Syfy series Alphas right when Nina gets awesome and Rachel finally gets to have sex; appreciate the U.S. government’s response to the official petition to build a Death Star; talk inflatable space hotels and the evolution of the U.S. space program’s potential as a thriving private industry; and take note of oceanographer Robert Ballard‘s incredible new discovery of 7,000-year old homes at the bottom of the Black Sea — which supports widespread cultural accounts of a Great Flood. Come join the geekery!
