Stray Thoughts team member Damien Carmello is set to face off against his fork, Damien Gorello, in a no-holds-barred deathmatch for control of Legba.

This week, the Stray Thoughts team heads to Hollywoodland, a high-priced amusement park in Lunar orbit where nostalgic hyperelites can meet and solicit sex from dead celebrities.

Can the ex-Sentinels locate Omen in a tourist trap for the undying rich? Listen to find out!
