On this week’s podcast we talk about the new book from Mountain View-based author Andy Weir. His previous novel, “The Martian,” was a smash hit—both as a book and a movie starring Matt Damon. He returns with “Artemis,” a space-aged caper, which takes place on a colony on the moon.
We also discuss this week’s “5 To Watch” column, which features five new restaurants that you ought to know about. Plus we talk mixed nuts—that is, the three very different versions of “The Nutcracker” showing this week in Silicon Valley.
