January 24, 2017 : Celebrating Western Heritage

CK goes to the Stock Show this week, and then catches up on the latest update to Minecraft. We also review a pair of fantasy novels, take a look at a tiny ocean with a big volcano, hear what readers think the new year will bring and visit a refugee center in Serbia. Then we'll kick off a new series about astronomy and mythology, and we'll continue our trip around the world.
