IC 28: Mattress Wars

What happened to the one guy who ruled over the entire online mattress market with his review site? We discuss that ridiculous story, as well as Game of Thrones Season 8: who will live, who will die, who becomes a zombie? Plus some gaming nostalgia, Randolf continues to serve up some very odd subreddits, and the logo designs for SPACE FORCE!

IC 15: Pineapple on a Leash

Michael and Randolf return for their first (publishable) episode of 2018. Some people aren’t liking the Last Jedi, a discussion of the merits of sleep, and some weird GIF based subreddits. Randolf is playing a cool Early Access game, and GIBI features both climate change denial and appreciation of fruit.
