Episode 22 - The Brilliance

Hosts: Jim, Jon & Eden
Guest: Eloy Lasanta of Third Eye Games

We create a future Earth in which some of the human population have begun to evolve into beings of light. These new types of humans have made significant gains in equality, but there are always those who refuse to accept them, and some who even seek their destruction!
