The Subtle Knife Ch 4: Solving the Universe NBD

FIRST: We hope you’re all safe!

Also! Our Patreon is live and ready to go! We also have merch available for your nerdy merch needs.

We always say it’s a short and simple chapter, and then we start digging in and so much more appears to us! These books are just so good. We start with a discussion of the major plot developments and themes (00:04:26), alethiometer readings (01:00:57), the Extra award (01:03:58), and add to the Subtle Knife mixtape (01:05:32).
