Beacon 23: S1-E3–5 – Rocky & rolling

Episode 21
2h 49m | Dec 10, 2023

Book-reader Elysia and show-only Luke tackle the central arc of Beacon 23 season one, episides 3–5: "Why Can't We Go on as Three?," "God in the Machine," and "Rocky." We point out all the things you might have missed (without spoiling ahead) and suss out what it all means – from the AI origin story to telepathic rocks to the first character from the books to finally show up (non-readers won't believe who it is).

Spoilers through episode 5, and no further. Check back in this feed in two weeks for the combined breakdown of episodes 6 & 7!

Also, Abi and Elysia break down everything that happens in the book Beacon 23 (and all the Silo books) in the Wool-Shift-Dust Book Club.
