The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy podcast

"Alexa, phone Mom"

Mark Steadman, Danny Smith and Jon Bounds continue their mission to discuss everything in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy canon, in alphabetical order. This episode has some bad language.

The team examines the concept of choice, and how the choices characters make - or don't make - affect their future.


Jon educates us on Maslow's hierarchy of needs.

Cloudworlds of Yaga

Mark asks what it might be like to live in the Cloud (this is nothing to do with Apple or Google) and gets high-roaded by Danny.
