Jon Satrom is our guest this week! Chicago (x2) in tha house! We talk about being punk rockers, dropping projectors and being deep in the hippie game. There are many things to buy when the invisible hand of disaster capitalism pays full retail price for your surplus gas masks.
Internet Engineering Task Force... take notice! Taylor has created the haikulink transport protocol (Is port 575 taken?). Jon squeezes Taylor and Rob through a neural network and a whole bunch of like... awesome weird stuff comes out, you know? Rob talks trash on solenoids but they came through in the end so he probably shouldn't get too puffy about it.

We welcome materials engineer Ian Doran as our first guest! Taylor shares knucklebones as an ancient method of random number generation and combines the old-school with the new-school. Ian brings the icosahedral heat! Rob thinks about rolling dice and... the dice roll. We also discuss steam turbines, lost wax casting, teenager as scientist, driveway as science laboratory and bevel math! You heard that right! Bevel math!
