S01E14: Believe

THE EXPLOSIVE FINALE IS HERE! Cher and Javier face faceless hordes of evil AI and electric scooters in a race to save their lives and (if there's time) the world. Will they escape to Cher's homeworld and leave us all in the hands of the Personeum Corporation? Will they stand and fight against the impossible odds? Will there be a Season 2? Some of these answer will be found here and two sentient beings' lives will NEVER BE THE SAME!

S01E12: Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves

3 EPISODES LEFT IN SEASON 1! It's episode 12 of Parasitecology and Javier & Cher find themselves on the run from the Personeum Corporation and their thousands of devices watching you, listening to you, and definitely smelling you all the time. Where can they hide and formulate a plan where no one could possibly find them? I'm not saying it's the library, I'm just saying it's definitely the library. As we all know, however, the library contains everything you need to avoid an alien invasion so they should be good. And what's this about Stargates? Wait, Cher has reminded me they are not called Stargates, that is ridiculous. So what are they called? Listen now to find out!

S01E09: Half-Breed

EPISODE #9 of Parasitecology! In the brief calm before the coming storm that is the final run of episodes in Season 1, Javier and Cher join forces to figure out just how deep in it they are. Javier learns about the pleasant sounding Cabal of Violence and the secret history of Earth, Cher's homeworld, and selective breeding and Cher learns about the excitement that is a day at work as Javier digs up information about what the Personeum Corporation may be up to. Plus, a quick trip to the club for some quiet soul searching and conversation. Hey, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

EPISODE #8 of Parasitecology! As Javier and Cher search for a smell-based means to avoid detection from murderbots and whatever else may come their way, cracks begin to form in the trust they've built up. A cloud of depression hangs over our heroes and something tells me that a visit to Javier's old work to pick up a paycheck may prove to be more dramatic than either expects. Can Javier and Cher survive the terror that is Huggy Jeff? Find out in this episode: "Living in a House Divided!"
