57 Prime Spider Real Estate

Looking back on previous episodes. Getting dumped. Spitting after getting hit by an emotional avalanche. The merits of tweeting your feelings. That moment when you get confused for someone’s husband. Codependency. Viral emotions. Living with your pocket computer that can’t process feelings. Why you should keep doing what you’re doing. Feeling bad about feeling bad. First world problems. And becoming the kind of person that can deal with how terrible you are to yourself.

In this episode, the boys discuss the results of Joey’s emotional social media adventure.

56 The First Thing to Go is Trains

Bullshit prognosticating. How to get the best front row seat for the apocalypse. The pre-Singularity. Robocop. Self-driving cars. Robot trolley car death in the future. Talking shit about capitalism, and other things that will eventually get Joey deported. Minimum wage, Mad Max style. Fast food free of judgment. Being technically correct is still the best kind of correct. Captain America. A short apology to Ryan’s sister. Becoming the intellectual Highlander.

In this episode, the boys make predictions about the future in order to promote an episode of Pub Chat.

54 Looking For a Towel

Internet girls that like the same things you do. Where you go after Douglas Adams and The Simpsons. Swords, dragons and gods. A strong distaste for high fantasy garbage. How fiction gives us a better understanding of reality. Losing your favorite author and personal guru. The eleven lives you live. All the books you love that you’ve yet to read.

In this episode, the boys talk about Terry Pratchett, as a very drunk Ryan tells Joey what to read next.

53 Managing Your Larger Automaton

Mad Max. Pineapple pizza. Early exposure to computer machines. Keeping your favorites to yourself for the safety of us all. Eating handfuls of dirt. When everyone learned to kick it up a notch. The good ham. Breaking out of a food comfort zone. And a word worse than foodie.

In this episode, the boys talk about Internet arguments about food and why a food adventure is the best adventure.
