Skyjacks: Episode 117

Taking no chances, Gable begins ordering evasive maneuvers preparing The Uhuru to battle The Silver Bullet. In the belly of the ship Jonnit finishes getting the orphans latched into safe places before rushing off to try and help.

CONTENT WARNING
Main Show: Pretty extreme stress, missing an absent partner, heights and people dangling from them, betrayal.
Dear Uhuru: Bullying

421. Danksgiving Part 2

James, JPC, Brad and Alex struggle to remember the convoluted character histories they created together just moments ago. Alan Rickman confidently advocates that he is capable of using a knife to the only man to ever overdose on marijuana- then the mummy Latharnicock shows up… a reminder, these are some of the best improvisers left in Chicago.

Drug use, you will probably actually wish we made more jokes about drug use

Skyjacks: Episode 116

MAIN SHOW
Gable returns to The Uhuru with news of an unknown ship in the area. Orimar orders everyone to stand by and prepare. Not knowing if they face friend or foe means they have to be ready for everything. Tension mounts as the orphans are moved to a safe location at the heart of the ship and the battle leaders brace for conflict.

CONTENT NOTE
Preparation for emergency, fine mobility impairment

THE MAIDEN AND THE HART
Margaret tells the story of The Maiden and the Hart to a restless client. It is an old story, one from before the stars fell, before many of the things we know from our Spéir. It is an important story, one that everyone should hear.

CONTENT NOTE
Gender dysphoria, animal violence, allusion to suicidal ideation, sex, misgendering, death, bitter-sweet ending.

Skyjacks: Episode 115

While everyone was having their own adventures last week, Travis was sitting with some of his gloomier thoughts, as a bird. After the sun sets he decides to visit Bathroom Barry, the ship’s quartermaster for some advice. During this time he lets it slip that there might be a group aboard the Uhuru planning a mutiny.

CONTENT NOTE
Main Show: Unfolding existential crisis, there are a few bathroom-related jokes because Bathroom Barry is in this one, you are forced to imagine younger hor body-builder Spit, bullying
Dear Uhuru:  Mention of Spit having  a suspension fetish (that’s a rough google,) there is one point where Spit is just screeching “pornography” in the background. I swear this is an otherwise tame segment!

419. Heart Beats Part 2

Can heart transplant surgery cure homophobia? Will an underappreciated sibling’s ruse impersonating their more attractive counterpart result in bliss or disaster? Will a daring risk-taker perform a dangerous exploratory surgery to satisfy a medical insurance provider in a dark quid pro quo? Can something terrible please happen to Huckamule Kidcutter who is just THE WORST?

CONTENT NOTE
This series draws a lot of comedy from inappropriate conduct in a medical setting. James’ character repeatedly references losing child patients though no children are hurt in the course of the actual story. There is also frequent reference to how broken the US healthcare system and particularly health insurance is.
