Hitchhikers and Appetizers

An improvised podcast based in, and expanding on the world of Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. The podcast is created by Mike Gorgone and Bran Peacock and is part of the Improv in Action Network.

Join Trellis Gardeen and Horatio Zinn in their quest to keep eating and drinking for free at Millyways by interviewing the various beings dining there. Trellis discovered an error in the Guide’s reimbursement submission system and as long as an entertainment receipt is submitted with a Guide entry the reimbursement is automatically approved!

So it’s life in the buffet-lane as long as they can keep talking diners into joining them in booth 42.
