11 p.m. – Jan. 12, 2014: 2 a.m.: NRRF B Radio: Wint'ry Mix: Escape Pod to Snowland
It is thought that space is a cold and lonely place, and if there was water, and things for it to drip from, there would be icicles. And yet, as humankind, we, for some reason, are curious as to whether or not there is someone out there, maybe even a frosty someone; perhaps an angry frozen hoarde of burritos, or maybe just a whole lot of icy gnome-creme bars. In this episode of NRRF B Radio, called 'Wint'ry Mix,' the intrepid explorers on the good ship NRRF have had to abandon ship in their escape pods. Chased by Nebulor the Snowflakian, our heroes will be forced again to cross Nebulaeic Alliance territory to face the frozen clones in a cold battle of wits. The action begins to snowball as the escape pods blast free from the good ship NRRF. Will our heroes be forever separated from the NRRF, or will they defeat the frozen clones and re-join their mission to explore the outer limits of the Nebulaeic Allliance's space space? Or, will the entire episode devolve into an ice cream social?
