Ep 434 - Roadside Picnic, by Arkady and Boris Strugatsky

What if all we knew about alien culture was their garbage? Or is it their garbage? The Strugatsky brothers' most famous novel is about a world where stalkers crawl through hazardous Zones for precious artifacts. Also it's about hope, bureaucracy, and our relationship to the unknown.

Our theme music was composed by Nick Lerangis.
