Con Giuliano Santoro Estratto dalla presentazione di Point Lenana alla Casetta Rossa, Garbatella, Roma. Le voci sono quelle di WM1 e Giuliano Santoro, la data il 30 ottobre 2013. L'estratto dura un'ora spaccata. Si parte parlando di cielo stellato, poi ci si inoltra in una discussione approfondita sulla natura ibrida di Point Lenana, con diversi insight sulla direzione presa da Wu Ming. En passant, WM1 dice un paio di cosette su costui.
