Today, Krysten dives recklessly into the shallow pool of the flat earth. In doing so, she did some real research! (And successfully incorporated references to the Smashing Pumpkins, Terry Pratchett, AND Douglas Adams. She is feeling please as punch about it, thank you very much.)

As promised, below are the sources she used for this episode:
