    Just once, I want Michael Barbaro to break character and start The Daily with “Act One: a Texas high school’s challenge to reopen in the era of the coronavirus. From WBEZ in Chicago, it’s This American Newspaper.” He’ll never do it, but with second dose fever dreams looming, anything is on the table.

    This week: bad Scooters, remotes get a little less universal, and half-hearted predictions around the forthcoming hum-drum spring Apple event. 🎵.

    Now congregants, if you would please turn to Exodus 31:18, we will read of Phil Schiller’s arduous journey to Mount Sinai where he received the App Store rules — rules that persist to this very day!

    This week: keyboards that go clickety clack, Tim’s relationship with the truth is sort of whack, and a new Sonos speaker small enough to take to the track. ⌨️.

    March 31st, 2021  |  1 hr 23 mins

    “Mr. Owl, how many bites does it take to get to the shame center of In-N-Out Animal Style fries?” Let’s find out. One... Two... Two bites…¹ oh no was that american cheese?

    This week: tax shelters, email notifications, and a meatless alternative to Sunday Night Football. 🏈.

    ¹ If you don’t get this reference, ask your nearest boomer.

  • Episode 268: Al Fresco

    March 17th, 2021  |  1 hr 27 mins

    We’re almost done writing our screenplay: “The Curse of the iPod Hi-Fi”. It’s a working title, but we think it’d be a great fit for TV+. Any listeners know someone who can get us a meeting with Tim or Eddy?

    This week: new threads, slow streets, and Larry Page watches you sleep. 💤 .

  • Episode 267: Amish Sodastream

    March 10th, 2021  |  1 hr 46 mins

    Seems kind of unprofessional for a veterinarian to write “a bit chonky” under weight on a dog’s chart, tbh.

    This week: Britishisms, millennial chip marketing, and yet another entrant into the very un-socially distanced streaming wars. 🐶.

  • Episode 266: Potato Chip Finish

    March 3rd, 2021  |  1 hr 30 mins

    We’ll get Blue Barn to stop calling sandwiches “sandos” if British folks agree to stop calling vaccinations “jabs”. Deal, Boris?

  • Episode 265: 25% of Everything

    February 24th, 2021  |  1 hr 39 mins

    This new generation with their dabbing and Tiktok will never understand what it was like in the 1990s. There was no Spotify. We had to walk uphill, in the snow, both ways to Fry’s to get a spindle of CD-Rs for our sick Sugar Ray mixes.

    This week: chicken sandwiches, mass transit, and a more jacked era of the Gerber baby. 🍼.

  • Episode 264: The Bad Property Brother

    February 17th, 2021  |  1 hr 42 mins

    Up is down. Black is white. Congress is effective. Carlos had embraced the multi-pad lifestyle?

    This week: barnstorming the HGTV vault, swiping on niche dating apps, and supercruising in the new Mach-EUV. 🚗.

  • Episode 263: Volt Bolt

    February 3rd, 2021  |  1 hr 37 mins

    Sure an Apple Car might sound fine on paper, but how is your average driver supposed to flip it over to plug in the Lightning cable for charging?

    This week: living más, steering the climate climate policy agenda, and going over the top in Waco. 🏡.

  • Episode 262: Edge Brownie

    January 27th, 2021  |  1 hr 43 mins

  • Episode 261: Bubly Drops

    January 20th, 2021  |  1 hr 37 mins

    Well, we certainly won't make the mistake of mixing up Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio again after this week.

    This week: deplatforming, flight simulating, and America's favorite new game: bourbon or old timey candy? 🥃.

  • Episode 259: Sonos Tauntaun

    December 16th, 2020  |  1 hr 29 mins

    Excerpt from the Disney earnings call: “You get a Star Wars spin-off! And you get a Star Wars spin-off! Everyone gets a Star Wars spin-off!”

    This week: Fieri chat, home audio talk, and the big deal that is WarnerMedia's 2021 streaming strategy. This is a good one. 🎥.

    December 2nd, 2020  |  1 hr 38 mins

    How’s the weather in Yountville this time of year?

    This week: washing dishes is as easy as 1-2-3, picking an espresso machine for all of you but mostly me, and home audio upgrades for boomier Bublé around the Christmas tree. 🎄.

  • Episode 256: Stereo Pairs

    November 18th, 2020  |  1 hr 45 mins

    Capitalism is a fickle beast. Sure it’s why a health emergency can bankrupt a family, but sometimes Apple will only charge you 6x what something should cost instead of 12. So there’s that.

    This week: beefy camera bumps, mid-Atlantic coffee chain merch, and your hosts’ surprisingly diametrically opposed takes on Apple’s new app store commission scheme. Email to let us know who is right. 🍎.
