They finally reach the end of Part II of Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes! Michael & Ethan are super excited about it, and have a rip-roaring time. In between the laughter, they manage to do a little literary analysis, too.  In this episode:

  • A brief aside about Hamilton.

  • Harry Potter comes into the discussion.

  • Ethan sounds paranoid about Google.

  • Michael is a talking bust.

  • Math & Science Corner with Ethan!

  • Michael doesn’t want to put forth the effort to make them sound smart.

  • Don Quixote saves marriages.

  • Ethan reads some Milan Kundera.
