  1. My thanks to everyone involved — Isamu, Adrian, Ryan, Xum, anyone helping anonymously. Even if we still had Xum with us, this episode would have a lot going for it — a pulpy adventure of unique provenance, excellent music and sound, and Xum’s mellifluous voice and compelling delivery. But I think I appreciate every aspect of the Xum episodes more because I know the supply is finite. Thank you again for the entertainment and for the reminder of Xum.

  2. Also, I saw who composed the music. I assume it was sampled from movie soundtracks. May we know which ones?
