IC 16: Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

There’s a lot of weird stuff in this one. Michael and Randolf discuss the DeepFake trend on Reddit that has been in the news. Weird cryptocurrencies you’ve never heard of, as well as some Bitcoin discussion. Some bloody indie gaming, and then a GIBI about social networks, Disney, and beautiful HBO shows we love.
