EARTHCORE Episode #9

Sonny McGuiness and Cho Takachi have been researching the history of the Wah Wah mountains and the Silver Spring, the find that put EARTHCORE on the hunt for the biggest platinum deposit ever discovered. They have found a disturbing artifact, a deadly artifact, and must learn more. Meanwhile, Connell Kirkland must find a mining engineer that can dig to a world-record depth of three miles underground. Mack Hendricks is that engineer — can Connell convince him to join the project? And all this time, disgraced NSA agent Kayla Meyers has been digging for a different kind of treasure — the secret of the hidden mine’s location, and how she can turn that into a new life for herself.

But, if the company can’t reach the motherlode, no matter how big it is it is worthless. What will Connell, Angus and Patrick O’Doyle do to solve this problem?

RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK

StorySmack #36

On this episode, Scott and A revisit Raiders of the Lost Ark. (Spoiler alert: it totally holds up.)

We we lucky enough to see the Rooftop Cinema showing, which is  rooftop, outdoor viewing with cocktails. It was a really fun addition to the overall experience! If there’s something like this in your town, don’t miss the chance to go!

This episode doesn’t have our normal “timestamp discussion” of the movie because of the aforementioned venue change. But since it’s such a classic, I bet that’s just fine.
