Where am I? Where are you? Find out on this episode. Slow dialog: 1:40 Explanations: 3:32 Fast dialog: 16:36 Penelope: Tell me about the new town you’re moving to. Outis: It’s called Nusquam and it’s smack dab in the middle of the country. Penelope: Where is it exactly? Outis: I can’t give you the coordinates, if that’s what you’re after. Penelope: Of course not. I’m just trying to pinpoint where it is. Is it near Wichita, Kansas? Outis: It’s nowhere near Wichita. It’s in the heart of a remote part of the country. Penelope: Where is it relative to this town? Outis: I can’t give you any reference points or tell you the distance. I’ll just say it’s on the outskirts of a medium-sized town and borders Nebraska. Penelope: Why are you being so cryptic? Outis: I’ll tell you that when you spill the beans on why you’re asking. Penelope: I thought I’d come for an extended stay to help you get settled. Outis: You’ve just answered your own question. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
