No guest this week! Taylor and Rob blasting off into the inky void of lo-fi space.... .... ... .. . . . (yikes!) We talk about white male predators. yuck. Defcon, fed spotting, phreaking, hacking, 3d printing, FrontPage 98, Audacity and how scary it can feel to contribute to open source projects.
Rob channels his inner Container Store and gets packed for nowheresville. Taylor takes us to a cold, dark and lonely place... probably inhabited by little ice monsters.

Digital witchcraft practitioner Meghan Trainor is our guest this week! Seattle in tha house! We chat about our search engine doppelgängers, "Bertha" the sonically wondrous SR 99 Tunneling Machine, and electricity as a kinda-natural resource. We like funny people. One of us shares a tattoo with an angry, muscly singer. Can you guess who it is? Art... man... It gets co-opted by global hyper-capitalizm quickly. Meghan melds the knowing and unknowing of engineering and witchcraft. Do you even verte, bra? Taylor distills a pink ringing thing down to its most elegant and intriguing components. Rob gives you another reason to steal.
