Immediately after recording our previous episode, we moved the recording equipment in front of the TV, and began to watch all eight of the movies from the Fast & Furious franchise, in a single, virtually uninterrupted, sitting. We'd never seen any of these movies prior. We laughed and cried (and cried and laughed about it all again) through approximately 16 hours of running time. We reflect upon this very ill-advised act during today's episode.

Heat Death of the Universe is an End-Times-inspired podcast about a wide range of subjects falling under the enormous Janus-faced purview of cultural and political commentary. Hosted by two long-time expatriated US citizens living in South Korea, mainly Seoul.
Joshua Nomen-Mutatio currently teaches liberal arts to precocious child geniuses in the infamous Gangnam district, enjoys Latin-based pseudonyms (not really, just the one), makes percussive patterns with Gorymurgy, and lives on a high elevation hill in the oldest village in Seoul.
JD Newland teaches little humans in a less bourgeois area than Gangnam, but it’s bourgie enough. He enjoys the finest things in life such as scouring the Internet, endlessly scrolling on a plethora of devices, and consumption of all sorts. He lives at the base of Namsan, a mountain in Seoul and home to the city’s most famous tower.
