Welcome back to the hatch blastronauts! Kyle tells an odyssean story of trying to get a video game while high and then it’s the return of Punky Brewster with a few stirring rounds of “Name That Punky”. Then they discuss character with guest Al Madrigal. Al talks about his past career in human resources and how the experience of firing people affected his perception of people and honesty. Character’s tough to pin down but they figure it out with probing questions including; how does one define it, what indicators can reveal it, and is it possible to pee on your friend’s couch and still retain it? Then notorious good person, Donald Trump, calls in and clarifies what real character is.
