EPISODE 246: IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME

This week we’re just catching up after three weeks off, and we’re discussing why voicemail is now unnecessary, unlimited data packages that aren’t actually unlimited, the S8 vs the Pixel, hindsight tech, lampshade monitors, Bixby hiccups, email, Bladerunner 2049, Dark City, how the pugs locked Dubs keys in his car, Matt introduces his idea for a revolutionary new tail light, Hungry Hustlers: paying it forward, real life fables on social media, revisiting the public library, sneaking Chinese food into the movie theater, Wong’s eggrolls, Palabra del Dia, financing a new bed, back pain, hot bed tech, and rescheduling recording. It doesn’t sound hilarious, but somehow it still is, so download it now and listen to it, and then tell your friends!

EPISODE 245: IN THE TRENCHES

Hop in the trenches with us this week as we define the characteristics of a modern country song, finally get some justice for Stageline, raise awareness instead of actually doing something, call out wack-ass capitols, fly to ATX and get hassled by the TSA, fight the awkwardness of airplane seating and random traveling animals, take a less than super shuttle to a baller JW Marriot, pivot to a conversation about Texas SONS before grabbing a drink in one of the most gentrified house-bars downtown, and then meet tech hero, Kelsey Hightower. After that we’ll try to solve the mystery of a serial shitter in Colorado, attempt to bring a high-speed police chase to an end peacefully, and then devise a plan to long-con a bank robbery!
