A chain of cupcake stores went out of business and the Internet is FREAKING OUT, MAN. An enterprising eBay user is selling the 'last cupcake' for $250. Jeff and Anthony try to figure out why we cling to the past so much.

Special bonus mentions: Potato salad kickstarters and self-administering electric shocks rather than being alone with your own thoughts.

Jeff and Anthony talk about Android Wear and wearable technology in general. Anthony is concerned he’s turning into one of those cranky old dads who never gets rid of his VCR because it ‘works perfectly fine.’ Jeff worries about his hummingbird feeder.

The third of a few test sessions we recorded while developing the show.

Jeff read an article about the Fermi Paradox and now he’s bugging out about the end of the world. (Don’t tell him he’s bugging out, though, he’s in denial) Luckily Anthony Carboni, Science Lawyer, is there to cool his jets.

A grandmother finds a secret treasure trove of arcade games in a newly purchased building… but the machines are cursed.

Okay, the machines aren’t cursed. But we’re convinced that if we’d found the machines, they’d be cursed, which leads us to a discussion of dreams, ambitions, and tempered optimism.

The first of a few rough recording sessions we did while coming up with the show.
