Sedative Hypnotics

Shawn at Podcast MovementHyper Nonsense is (finally) back! And Jen’s on the show, too! Tho, she didn’t necessarily get to talk much. We started the show by reading about a new sleep medication Shawn is taking. Sleep eating. Sleepwalking. Sleep motorcycling? They’re all coming. Then, Shawn recapped his recent trip to Podcast Movement in Anaheim (which he has many thoughts/feelings about). Jen is participating in Inktober. That’s a thing where art nerds draw stuff and put those drawings on the ‘net. We finished out the show with a thank-you to our former Patreon backers, as we’ve decided to close our Patreon account. (Don’t worry. The show isn’t ending.)
