Your hosts are back from an unplanned break after Amanda wrapped up her busy semester and Tyler wrapped up his vaccinations and went outside. Amanda talks about the journals of a young girl in the 2000s, and Tyler muses that he should try to dictate personal logs in the format popularized in Star Trek.
There's a discussion on friendships and communities while your friends figure out how to get back into the world, but like that masterful XKCD comic presents, socializing was difficult before this mess, too.
Tyler rediscovers Junji Ito and he's very excited about it, and Amanda gets her feet cheese-grated by a professional.
