About this Episode

Good evening and welcome to the show. Would you like still or sparkling water with your podcast this evening?

As with most things in life, it's never that simple. This week, we pour out a can of La Croix passionfruit water for the short-lived Keurig KOLD, discuss under what circumstances you should complain at an establishment or send something back at a restaurent (spoiler: never), and why we may or may not be feeling 'the Bern'. Plus: subscription app pricing in the run-up to WWDC, predictions for Monday’s keynote, podcasts as a medium, Bill Simmons on HBO, and Internet mattresses. 🛏.
