Fewer hot takes, endless mimosas.

About the show

    July 21st, 2021  |  1 hr 38 mins

    Have the Democrats considered revising the infrastructure bill to more of a loot crate model for states? Oh nice, this one has light rail funding! All Mississippi got was a Fortnite skin and 2 miles of protected bike lanes...

    This week: cocktail multipliers, fry inflation, and the Guy Fieri moneyback guarantee. 🥞.

    July 14th, 2021  |  1 hr 32 mins

    Ready or not, we’re bringing our unique talents to the world of sparkling wine. Introducing a craft California champagne that shines brilliantly in a Philips Hue lit kitchen and pairs with any Trader Joe’s based charcuterie spread.

    This week: #teamwetzel or #teamauntannies, EV patriotism, and PVOD Wakandavisionalorian. 🚛.

    Summer is here. Temperatures are rising and California’s power grid will be strained. We humbly present the following solution to prevent rolling blackouts: one free Popeye’s chicken sandwich for every 10KwH of peak energy usage saved.
    Your move, Texas.

    June 16th, 2021  |  1 hr 24 mins

    To truly hear a podcast, you have to listen with your eyes closed. If you can, get it on vinyl. It's even better. Much like jazz, it's not the hot takes you hear, it's the ones you don't.

    This week: on the lookout for the newest Pokemon CHAdeMO, shacking up at a Supercharger, and KPMG wins the bid for AFC Richmond's kit sponsorship. ⚽️.

  • Episode 278: Marketing Gymnastics

    June 9th, 2021  |  1 hr 55 mins

    We looked and can’t find the intersection of Liberal Arts and Technology anywhere. Someone said it was by the corner of Happy and Healthy, but there’s just a Walgreens here. Is this is an Apple Maps thing? It’s not in Daly City is it?

    This week: Dora needs a map for this mountain of entertainment, the laziest word in the English language, and one of us took good notes during this week’s Apple Services keynote. 💸.

    June 2nd, 2021  |  1 hr 45 mins

    Vis a vis our plans to open the kimono ahead of our Q2 all hands, the ask here is that the biz. dev. team get their heads in the game if we truly want to be a 10X kind of organization. @channel

    This week: Trader Joe’s acknowledges The Cider House Rules, Amazon Studios hopes to Die Another Day, and Apple didn’t spend all that money on Office Space for you folks to sit at home watching Ted Lasso during the Webex. 📎 .

    May 26th, 2021  |  15 mins 13 secs

    Off again this week, but we left you a double shot on the counter.

    In this mini: pro sports and Las Vegas angling to be Nevada’s Oakland. 🏀.

    May 19th, 2021  |  15 mins 21 secs

    We’re off this week, but we’ve got a cappuccino-sized episode for you anyhow.

    In this mini: Carlos finds new ways to make sleep as complicated as humanly possible and Ryan has surprisingly strong feelings about candy nomenclature. 🍬.

  • Episode 274: Excelified 1040

    May 12th, 2021  |  1 hr 18 mins

    Tax day is approaching and while you should have filed months ago, we got your back in case you’re just barely trying to log into TurboTax. Stay on the right side of Uncle Sam by keeping the following in mind:

    1) You cannot claim your Roomba as a dependent.
    2) Having watched Ted Lasso means you legally have to change your declared occupation to “football hooligan”.
    3) If you bought a Tesla with Bitcoin in the 2020 tax year, go straight to jail, do not collect $200.

    This week: boozy cold brew, two new Spinny flavors by way of Still or Sparkling®, and we wonder what was the Matter with CHIP? 🥔.

    May 5th, 2021  |  1 hr 35 mins

    The Pepsi challenge, but make it Bubly.

  • Episode 272: Light and Optimistic

    April 21st, 2021  |  1 hr 59 mins

    You know, a phone company with the defacto podcast directory is a little like the mule with a spinning wheel. No one knows how he got it, and danged if he knows how to use it!

    This week: Taylor Swift B-sides, ZIP disks, and a newly jacked Tim Apple continues flirting with antitrust regulators.

  • Episode 271: We’re On a First Name Basis

    April 14th, 2021  |  1 hr 20 mins

    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. 🎵.

  • Episode 270: Mechanical Keyboard Poser

    April 7th, 2021  |  1 hr 39 mins

    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. ⌨️.

  • Episode 269: Three Sheds Are the Answer

    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. 🐶.
