#331: Toys, Part 2

We reminisce on our favorite childhood toys and delve into memories of specific character-building moments. Audra recalls the excitement of older cousins’ 1980 Hot Wheels City Play Set and Castle Grayskull fortress, and admits her own favorite toy was selected for its smell. Chuck and Sean geek out on Matchbox cars, model rockets, and the eternally-cool RC cars and airplanes, and appreciate how their current knowledge of vehicles was founded on play. And we run down the Week in Geek, explain the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) official statement last week that “No evidence of aquatic humanoids has ever been found,” hear Sean’s recommendation of the new action-RPG Dragon’s Dogma, and give some much-needed props to the economically-challenged and vital SETI program.
