Episode 47 – Ze Marshan

In this episode, we discuss our anniversary trip to Sedona, plans to go to Star Wars: Season of the Force, and the amazing book “The Martian” by Andy Weir.

Last week, we celebrated our Fourth wedding anniversary with a small trip to Sedona, AZ.  If you haven’t been, the views are absolutely breathtaking. We had a great time doing the hike to the Devil’s Bridge.  Please enjoy some photos here of our trip.

We also listened to the amazing book “The Martian” by Andy Weir.  Audiobooks are a great resource for those like us who don’t have the attention span to sit down and read books like adults.  Andy’s style of writing was phenomenal and R.C. Bray who did the narration on Audible was absolutely amazing at portraying the harrowing tale of Mark Watney.  If you haven’t read/listened to it, please do.  You can find it on Amazon.


We are going to be selling a limited edition print at DesignerCon in Pasadena, CA on Nov 21st-22nd. The print design (inspired by our Pixar Up cosplay) was created by Fannie Lam (@graymako on Instagram). She is an amazing graphic designer and budding toy customizer.

The print will be 5″x7″, limited to an edition of 50 at a price of $10. The print will be available first at the Broke Piggy booth #723 at DesignerCon. Half of the proceeds of this print will be going towards the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, so please come and purchase and support a worthy cause. Any leftovers will be available after DesignerCon through purchase from us directly. Please email or message us for details.
