IC #6: Google Diversity, Dream Daddy, and Coconuts

IC #5: You Only Have Yourself to Blame

Michael is joined by his new co-host, Randolf (Alex got lost while playing PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds). They kick things off by getting into the consumptive content on YouTube, why taking a break from the news and listening about WWI carnage has been a relief, and the rise and fall of SoundCloud. Plus, some gaming and GIBI featuring cognitive biases and a very oddly rendered GIF.
