These are a lotta fun. Loved the nod to Homo Narrans ('storytelling human') in Kat Ross's first story. I would also like to congratulate the author of the third story for resisting puning for as long as they did. The 2nd story, who doesn't love a bit cosmic in their horror. Great show.

    It was Terry Pratchett who came up with Pan Narran.

    “The anthropologists got it wrong when they named our species Homo sapiens ('wise man'). In any case it's an arrogant and bigheaded thing to say, wisdom being one of our least evident features. In reality, we are Pan narrans, the storytelling chimpanzee.”

    ― Terry Pratchett, The Globe
