Yuri’s Night and Lianne’s Fight: April 8th, 2013

Show Notes: April 9th, 2013 UTC

Hosts: Paul, Jesse, Ryan (and Lianne)
Title: Yuri’s Night and Lianne’s Fight

Lianne fought valiantly with her internet connection in order to join us on-air for the show, but alas, the internet won.

This April 12th, 2013 will be the 52 anniversary of the benchmark flight of Yuri Gagarin, the first human to ever leave their earthly bounds and venture into space.

See below for the show notes and podcast.
