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'..."

Violet Juno is our guest this week! Bay Area in tha house!!! We discuss working hard, pain, constant pain, and chronic pain. We miss talking about The Chronic, somehow.
Taylor injects symbols into the system and gets some really weird and great results. Well... We made it 12 episodes before Pepe entered the conversation. Violet grabs wind by the horns and unfurls the awesomeness. They also tip us off to some rad fabric and cool markers in the process. Rob tries to melt ICE in Los Angeles and keep the focus group focused.
