No guest this week! Just Taylor and Rob going big and then going home and then maybe taking a nap or making a nice egg n' the hole.
A big thanks to Nhung Walsh for giving us our next challenge! You'll have to listen to find out what it is! Send us your challenge ideas to us at email@example.com or hit us up on Instagram at opposable_podcast. But they need to be a secret. Hrm. That seems like a problem. Hrm... Well... We're excited to see how you tackle that problem.
Johnny Depp shot Hunter S Thompson's ashes from cannon. Rob is sick again. We chat about green screens, beard grooming, beer making, Fusion 360, the ATtiny 85 microprocessor, and Generation X. Rob feels like the punk rock influence on culture is overestimated and also misguided. Taylor makes him feel better about it.
Taylor went full junk drawer this episode and made a surprisingly accurate instrument! Geographic coordinate conversion can be kinda off-putting at first but it gets quite interesting once you give it a chance!
Rob didn't read the directions and paid the price by spending hours doing a single task for very little result. But at least he got to put non-food items in the oven.

Megan Sterling and Meghann Sotille are our guests this week! Chicago in tha house!
Nudity is our challenge this week! Artists work a lot of jobs. Motorcycle jewelry is a lot of skulls. Intaglio is pronounced "intalio." Huh!
Rob makes a thing to make it rain. Megan Sterling (aka Sterling) and Meghann Sotille (aka Mego) joined forces for a really great printmaking meets metalworking collab! You gotta see their process photos over on http://projects.opposablepodcast.com. The photos really help descibe all the cool techniques they used and notes they took. They used intaglio, press n' peel, anvils, ferric chloride and all sorts of other cool stuff!
Ask Taylor about his erotic carbs.
