Yesssssss, we're out of the Q and A wormhole and back into the Childrenverse, where the humans are terrible, the world building is amazing, and all the uplifted critters can totally give consent. We are starting our three part adventure through book two of the Children of Time series. PLEASE READ CHILDREN OF TIME FIRST! And ideally go back and listen to our episodes on it, cause Adrian is the master of using every part of the worldbuilding. For this first part we discuss the problem of figuring out what it's like to be a Portid, or an Octo, or anybody really. Sometimes connected to the problem of other minds, I feel like it's really the problem of separate minds. But is it really a feature, or an uplifted bug?

ALSO! We are extremely close to our goal of 350 patrons and the beginning of parasocial puppy hangouts!
