Episode 53: A Look Inward

Episode 53: A Look Inward


Episode 53: #BlackLivesMatter First and foremost, we - and I am going to speak for the both of us here - unequivocally support the Black Lives Matter movement. Over the past couple weeks, we have seen an unprecedented coming together of people from all states and backgrounds to support this singular idea, “Black Lives Matter”. The unfair targeting of black people by police in this country is a disease, and it needs to be cut out as soon as possible. We did not release an episode last week because it simply felt wrong to chat about superficial things like Apple rumors, or video game news when there were much more important conversations being had online. The show notes contain links to a whole lot of resources to learn, and also places where you can help the movement. Apple’s moving to ARM, Shaunak wants a creative mode in Animal Crossing, and there's now a fantastic official Last of Us Podcast.

This week Eric and Shaunak dig into all the Apple Glass related rumors and leaks, and try and envision what that experience could be like. Apple is also rumored to be competing with Sony and Bose in the high end portable headphone space, and the guys discuss what Apple needs to include for Apple to succeed.

The Sequels: The Skywalker Saga EndsThe end of the Skywalker Saga is upon us! Shaunak and Eric are joined by fan of the show (and Shaunak’s brother’s friend) Ben (Kenobi) to go over what fans call the Sequels or the “Disney Trilogy”. The trio go over what they liked, didn't like, and what parts just did not make sense to them. They unanimously decide that these three aren’t bad, but they are just a little bit disappointing. As usual, they rank the the movies within the trilogy, and the results might surprise. Next up - the Anthology films (Rogue One, Solo) and their final individual rankings.

Shaunak is back from his coronacation in the warmth of Houston, Texas. Playstation released an 18 minute video on Ghosts of Tsushima, and both Shaunak and Eric are extremely hyped for this game. The game news doesn't stop there - Ubisoft announced the new Assassin's Creed: Valhalla which has the guys intrigued. Who doesn't like Norse mythology?

The Prequels: We’ve Got a Bad Feeling About ThisThe time has come for Shaunak and Eric to go through and rank the much maligned and wholly meme-tastic prequel trilogy. The duo go over what they liked, didn't like, and what did not make sense. They spend some time wondering how munch better these movies would have been if anyone but George Lucas wrote and directed them. Also, Eric notices that nothing about Padme’s pregnancy in Episode 3 makes any sense. Does prenatal care not exist in the Star Wars universe?

Re-Uploaded on 4/9/20 to fix some audio issuesEpisode 45: The Unofficial WWDC PresentationOh boy, lots of iOS 14 stuff leaked this week.

Episode 43: What Even is a Teraflop?In a fairly chilled out episode, the duo start by talking about some slang that they have aged out of and do not understand.

Episode 40: Adolescent Yoda or Bust! Shaunak is deep into RSS feeds and mass unfollowing accounts on Twitter. The guys react to the report of Playstation waiting on Xbox to price the PS5, while maintaining that there's no chance the PS5 will be less than $500. Both of them are in awe at the rumored pricing for the new Galaxy phones, but also fawn over leaked videos of the Galaxy Flip. We finally got a trailer for some of the Marvel Disney+ shows, and Shaunak and Eric are super hyped.

As both a geek and someone who has recently graduated college, the conversations here are very personable and, well, even comforting in a lot of ways. A nice casual listen about tech and entertainment during your downtime--with some laughs sprinkled in between. My new go-to when I'm feeling the need to just listen to something both chill and stimulating.
