Mathew Lippincott is our guest this episode! Portland in tha house! “Precision” is our challenge this episode! Thanks Quinn Dunki for sending us the challenge!
Taylor puts the work and flow into rework and reflow. Mathew folds, unfolds and beholds! Rob's morning ritual goes exactly as planned. Exactly... As... Planned... We also talk about Mathew's encounters as a volunteer operator for the Futel telco network and AirPup, his latest amazing dirigible project.

Dan Bustillo is our guest this week! It's plastic buckets all the way down as we don our ordnance disposal suits and mix up some homemade chemicals! Polystyrene and acetone don't mix. No! Wait! Dan shows us they do mix... into a very goopy suspension. Your very goopy lower intestine seems like a good place to hide secret messages but... is it? Rob puts the doo-doo in Do It Yourself. What's in the boooox?!? Taylor concocts a potion and sketchy is transformed into etchy! Can you make diamonds in a microwave? Mmmmmaybe... and if that fails you could probably make a death ray.
A big thanks to Kelly (kellymariemartin.com) and Luke, our top Patreon supporters!
