You can discuss the episode via this GitLab issue or by joining our Discord community.


Fab and Mike look at what’s happening in Brexit land and how the EU’s about to shoot itself in the foot with a copyright reform.

We are sorry that the recent episodes are taking ages to release. Fab had a lot going on at the moment…

The Danish can do rum. Fab has finally managed to rebuild the Sixgun site. He’s also launched his Magic podcast.

And, as we’ve threatened for a long time: We have a Patreon now!


In this episode Mike and Fab talk politics again. Mainly Brexit (of course) and the current EU copyright reform. While some new stuff has happened since we recorded this episode, it’s still a very interesting discussion.

Mike has been listening to Gaslit Nation, a podcast about the machinations of the political elite in the US and especially the Trump administration. He’s also looked at reviews of the book We Need To Talk About Putin and it is a very interesting take on the enigmatic strongman from the East.

He mentions a Guardian story on the rise of populist rhethoric.

Babylon 5 is not coming to Europe, Kill Team doesn’t have many real kill teams in it, Simon Stålenhag is great and Fab reviews Surviving Mars.

Fab’s work life has been hell recently and Dave is stuck in startup crunch mode. But we nonetheless vow to get back to recording more regularly.

Babylon 5 may be coming to Amazon Video… not in Europe, though. Of course, it isn’t. Fuckers! We still want to do Babylon 5 Babble-On, though.


Fab has become a huge fan of Simon Stålenhag’s work. No wonder, the guy paints amazing scenes. Fab even wants to get a print to hang in his office. Meanwhile, Dave tries to make the French Tuck happening. He also loves this bike.

Like this tweet!


Dave discusses 40K things: The new Kill Team game, his Everlasting Wet Palette and the minis he bought from Anvil Industry and what he’s gonna do with them for Kill Team.


We then discuss some news. This includes the EU fining Google because of Android and Google’s cloud data transfer project. We also mention the World Cup in passing. Dave also wants to talk about the Tour de France for some reason.


To round out the show, Fab reviews Surviving Mars and we talk about your feedback. If you’d like to play Fortnite 🤮, tweet Dave.

This episode is packed to the rafters with electric cars, Gunpla, KanColle, Horus Heresy and even some Linux talk.

We are taking a break until mid-July, while both Fab and Dave are on holiday in Scotland.

There’s a free music DLC for Europa Universalis IV – get it while it’s hot. Speaking of music, Fab saw Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band at the Olympiastadion in Berlin and his voice is still suffering.

We talk Brexit, the Euro and the new story mode in FIFA 17. Dave mentions the Kickstarter for a new album by Fighting Evil is Cool. Sony is settling with PS3 owners for removing Linux from the console in 2010.

Fab did some more voxel work.

Fab thinks electric cars are shit, Dave sees it more nuanced.

Dave’s been into Gunpla recently and tries to explain to Fab why it’s great. Fab, however, gets very distracted by his discovery of KanColle in the middle of all of this. Dave bought his Gundam kits at 1999.co.jp – which is where Fab also found the battleship girls.

I mean, what the fuck. Girls that are also battleships. Those Japanese are mad!

Dave’s been continuing his reading the Horus Heresy and he really liked The Silent War and Pharos. He also mentions an amazing spaceship generator written in Python.

We end the show with answers to your questions. If you have some feedback, feel free to hit us up.
