Episode 156 is a hot mess. The audio is coming through a tin can, Lorenzo screws up Garage Band, Aggie has to leave because 45 minutes we still couldn't fix it so Kevin from The Bell Cast sits in all while our guest, an alumni of Rockstar Podcast, Marc Pickard of CB Tech Support sits in patiently watching all this unfold. We talk about if Irish people watch Hockey, the mishaps of Lorenzo and Kevin and podcasts and then we get a bit more serious with topics like Digital Manipulation from the Ted Radio Hour which includes Kayla the Talking Doll, Mariano using #DuckDuckGo, Lorenzo's marketing plan for #DuckDuckGo and his plan to get them to send him a big check, the parallel of YouTube vs the old school of watching Saturday morning cartoons, are we getting spied on by devices and platforms, Kevin admits he loved #ChatRoulette, Mariano cant deal with #RingTechnology and his #Amazon packages arriving, Mariano vs Lorenzo in the Data Privacy Wars, is #VPN security really secure or is it just more secure than non-vpn, Lorenzo parlays the Angels on #DraftKings and it didnt work out so well and in closing we probably piss of most people with talking about the #GoVote campaign and its process until Voting Day so we tackle what should be some new solutions for Voting Day and making it a National Holiday and #WolfBlitzer is tired at 2am, give him a break, #BattlestarGalactica, #Y2K, is Kevin getting a dog, the #stopandshop robot and so much more!
