S02E44 Album Cover

During every Olympiad, there’s always That Guy.

You know the person I’m talking about.  The dude who is suddenly an expert in all sorts of obscure sports.  In the case of the Winter Olympics, he holds forth on the differences between luge and skeleton.  He insists he understands the judging standards used in ice dancing and can point to the exact point where the judges colluded against the Canadians.  And he’s so wrapped up in the Games that he’s completely forgotten that it’s almost Roll Up the Rim to Win time (a sure sign of spring!).

Take a break from the Sochi hype and relax with another half hour or so of stimulating music-and-tech geekery.  You’ll be much better off.

Is Apple in talks to buy Tesla? We both hope so.

The best connected cars of 2014.

Why you shouldn’t stage dive. Ever.

Renaissance butt music.  Yes, we’ll explain what we mean by this.
