Aliens Episode 11: The Gaslighting of Ellen Ripley

Aliens Episode 10: They Were Expendable

Jason Heck finishes the week by talking with us about how useless of a friend Burke is to Ripley, why Ripley doesn't accuse the company of murdering her crew, and to talk about the dubious value of the dollar in 2179. (Note: We did have some sound issues toward the end of the show.
