Quinn Dunki is our guest this episode! Los Angeles in tha house! "Build a working camera and take a photo with it" is our challenge this episode! Thanks Arturo Romo for sending us the challenge!
Rob goes for broke and then goes for broke again.... and... ends up broke. Quinn brings tha heat in order to freeze a moment in our lives. Taylor risks being arrested capturing photographic psychedelia but perseverance and Metallica gets him through. We also talk about amazing wire walker and interventionist Philippe Petit.
Quinn gave us our next challenge at the end of the episode and you can hear the fear in Rob's voice.

No guest this week! Taylor and Rob keeping it... real? real loose and jazzy, maybe. If you're interested in Ken Burns' very interesting hairstyle, the toothbrush mustache, protanopia and "the Amen break" you've come to the right podcast.
We dive into creating and sequencing music with images, random number generation and software defined radios (SDRs). We also get into science fiction, topo maps, lockpicking
