ESO gets burned!
Final Notice

Next week, the ESO crew sneaks a peek at the top-secret dossier of burned CIA agent, Michael Westen. How did this top operative find himself disavowed? Who are his friends? Who can he trust? And why is all this happening to him? Plus, we look ahead to the upcoming series finale with our predictions on how it all ends. You know, on most podcasts, that would be more than enough, but we’ll also have the usual Rants, Raves, Khan Report, Geek Seat, Shout Outs, and even a special guest or two. You get all this and more on the next exciting episode of Earth Station One.
