First the guy mispronounces Data's name, giving him a soft "A" like in "thatta" (ex: Come on, man. Say it right. Thatta boy!) instead of a hard "A" like in "beta" (ex: Did you even run this by a single beta listener before posting?). Then the gal says Star "Track" and basically what I'm saying is that OBVIOUSLY neither of you are Trekkies / Trekkers so why are either of you reporting on this topic???

Facts Don't Care About Your Feelings

Listeners of this podcast may find this relevant: Facebook's upcoming "cryptocurrency" should NOT be trusted. It goes against every fundamental value and function of cryptocurrency, and is In fact NOT a crypto at all! Instead of an open source product that anyone can audit and help to contribute to and help run the network, its closed source, is a CLOSED network, only made up of big banks, Visa, and shady corporations, and is a huge tracking network with your real identity tied to it being 100% mandatory, then all your transactions are sent to all of Facebook's partners, and of course the government will have full access to everything. Are you really going to trust a shady, lying spy company with your money?

Facts Don't Care About Your Feelings

Google, Facebook, and Amazon. These 3 companies will destroy society within a handful of years. They have destroyed privacy already, spy on us (even Amazon; lookup "Rekognition" facial recognition made for police, which leads to false arrests, also used in their Amazon Go stores to track you), and have made us both addicted and helpless to consumerism and our phones. Do not give these companies a penny...vote with your dollars people.
