I present my first squid AND sci-fi related digression: I’m a big fan of the Drabblecast audio magazine, and if you are new to their brand of weird audio fiction, I highly recommend Seth Dickinson’s excellent story Testimony Before an Emergency Session of The Naval Cephalopod Command.

“The squid is a solipsistic psychopathic God with a lust for submarine hull and a mandate from Ronald Reagan branded on its hunting tentacles. It sweeps east from Iceland in the cold under the thermocline, alone in the dark, solitary lord of a solitary place.”
