2:30-  Tyler is reading Jason Parents Book They Feed.  It looks like its got zombie stuff in it.  SUPER COOL!!!.  Buy it here.  
3:00-  Mike and Tyler talk about Grimscribes Puppets another reference to Thomas Ligotti.  Tyler tries to pretend he knows something about Ligotti.  He does not.  It is obvious. it is cringy and maybe a little pathetic.  Mike mentions another podcast we love called the Outer Dark Podcast.  It is totally worth a listen.
