Serenity's crew reunites with Badger who now needs Captain Malcolm Reynolds and the respect he affords so that he can work a deal to move cattle off planet. Crossing paths at a fancy Southern inspired ball, Malcolm and Inara continue to battle, though in the end, they both come to the other's aid. And finally, we get to see the feminine side of Kaylee as she accompanies Mal to the ball, which, not surprisingly, produces a duel to the death involving the captain and Inara's client.
As most of you know, Wayne and I are high school English teachers, and for the past few years, my students have recorded podcasts as part of the Imaginary Worlds unit.

So sit back and enjoy; who knows, we may all be subscribing to their shows in a few short years.
