Waterparks

Waterparks! Slides, tubes, pools, waterparks have them all. This week Tim and Tom went to a waterpark for the first time in probably at least a decade and returned to tell the tale. They discuss the different kinds of amusements one would find at a waterpark as well as what’s worth your time (lazy rivers) and what might not be (wave pools). If you’re looking for thrills AND spills then this episode is right up your alley.

Sandwiches

This week we’re talking turkey, turkey SANDWICHES that is. One of our favorite topics, but one that has never been explored at length, until now. We aren’t afraid to tackle the big issues either. Mustard or mayonnaise? Whole wheat or white bread? How tall of a sandwich is too tall? We also find surprising common ground as well as a whole lot of conflict.

Simulation Hypothesis

This week we learn that the world around us might not be what it seems, as Tom explains to Tim what the Simulation Hypothesis is all about. Is life as we know it a computer simulation? It's possible. Does Tim have issues with low blood sugar? It would explain all the giggling in this episode. We also solve a problem from a listener who has an awkward situation at work with her boyfriend.

Summer Vacation

School’s. Out. For. Summer. That’s right kids, this week we’re talking about what you’ve been waiting for all school year: summer vacation! We discuss the various exciting and not-so-exciting off-year summer vacation destinations we both went to as kids and a shocking revelation is made about Tim’s diving expertise (or lack thereof?).

Also this week we solve a listener problem about an inherited cat that’s been bringing around a bad crowd.

Oculus Rift

This week, Tom explains everything about the Oculus Rift, the newly-released virtual reality headset that he recently purchased, in what will likely be his last episode ever before going to live full time in cyberspace. Also, Tim has a series of misadventures at a rock concert and we talk a little more about last week's topic of Tiny Houses.

Tiny Houses

Spread the word: tiny houses aren’t just for people who can’t afford big houses anymore! This week we’re talking about the minimalist movement sweeping the nation. Want to build your own tiny house and then go live in the woods all alone? Then you’ve come to the right place. Also, we solve a listener problem concerning a yawning co-worker/roommate.

Pretty soon every item in your home will be connected to the internet and everything you need will happen automatically.

Anyway, this week we talk about the Internet of Things, Tom's obsession with having a "connected home" and we speak with a very special robot guest. Also, Tim's cab driver has a run-in with the police and we try to order cashews just by talking into thin air.

Movies Movies Movies! Like we always say: hooray for Hollywood!
