Episode 103 - YouTube vs. Hunting Channels (w/Keith Garton)

March 18, 2019

Boom! We're back! The only podcast on the Internet returns with episode 103! This time, we're joined by our good friend Keith Garton (of What About This fame) for a topic that only Danial so-called-nice guy would bring to the table. It would seem that the tyrannical force known as YouTube has called an open season on hunting channels (See what I did there?) by demonitizing popular channels featuring the outdoor sport. Why are they doing this? We break down the possible reasons and also dive into some side topics involving censorship and marketing. All of this and more on this episode of Topicocalypse.

Episode 97 - Technology (Just Because We Can, Does It Mean We Should?)

January 26, 2019

The gang is all back, and the only podcast on the Internet returns! On this episode, Bryan Kane PhD brings an interesting inquiry to the table. CES just happened, and he's been diving into all of the new tech coming out of the Las Vegas trade show. On top of that, we've all been watching Westworld. What better time to talk about technology, computers, and robots (both the sex kind and the terminator kind). Bryan asks us how we feel about all of this, and we explore the question of just because we have the ability to create something, does it mean we should? This gets us into a discussion about smart devices, Alexa, and so much more.

Episode 95 - New Year’s Eve Conversation Pt 2: Top Tens, Politics, and a Long Introspective on Religion (w/Jim Pederson)

January 19, 2019

Welcome back fans. Once again, I apologize for the audio and formatting issues in this episode. We did something a little different on New Year's Even this year, and recorded something that was more of a conversation than a podcast episode. That being said, on this episode of the Internet's only podcast, we're discussing more of our top tens, including video games and books. Then we're joined by the Big Jim himself to talk about politics and religion, and where he sees both of these things going in 2019. So buckle up and prepare to be offended. We're also once again joined by Justin Pederson and his wife Chelsea Pederson.
