Madeline Vaccaro is our guest this episode! Chicago in tha house!
We talk about Maddie's work and the challenge of making multiples. It's so hard to re-make a thing over and over with the same amount of enthusiasm as you had for the first one. We also talk about Hachiko the dog * sniff *. Also, Taylor and Rob are addicted to podcasts.
Taylor merges the new-schoolness of NFC tags to re-invent a 20th Century past time.
Need a good cry? Maddie's project has got you covered. If it doesn't make you cry you're probably a replicant.
Rob refurbs an antique to make a cool gift for a great friend. "They see me knollin... They hatin'..."
