Thank you for sharing such an engaging discussion and the topic. I agree that self-driving cars aren’t some crazy future tech because they are here now. I think that self-driving automobiles are not 100% secure (like anything in the real world), but it has an excellent opportunity to solve issues such as https://samploon.com/free-essays/drunk-driving/; I came to this conclusion while reading their thoughts on drunk driving essays. They will work because they do already now; they will work more safely and smoothly with some upgrades and testing requirements.

speaking of that (those) mario games AND that decluttr thing, well decluttr sounds like an online pawn site and that is just the scam that the mario game(s) are involved in. Heritage Auctions buys the games, cleans it up and "grades" it- or basically seals and authorizes it, than sells it but get this TO THEMSELF. This largely inflates the price and collectors hate this practice. Now you may notice I don't particularly comprehend the details so you might say I'm feedig to much into the youtube conspiracies and you'd probably be right! I'd just like to inform you that this (and probably the ipod/iphone thing heck any shocking too good to be true story- you know what we've all been taught about that) is probably a scam and we'd just appreciate if you didn't advertise that kind of stuff. Just realize we may be nutty conspiracy theorists (after all we don't want the prices inflated on our hobby lol is that so wrong?) but sometimes even the conspirators are right... or on the right track in any case. Thank you Videogame collecting nerds, Esquire

Just started listening to this podcast. One episode in (virtual concerts) and I must say I realy like the ping pong aspect of host and guest. My only complaint is please sync the volume better. It might be on my end but from what I noticed is the ads that roll are super loud and im finding myself having to adjust the volume every time an ad rolls.

Freaks and Geeks is such a fun highly underrated show with an 80s vibe, no idea where to find it though but its well worth the search. Red Oaks is another coming of age series with a strong 80s vibe made by Amazon Prime video. I really like the Prime series, Mozart in the Jungle.

last year the Prime Day prices were the same as July prices. It was truly a disappointment.

True story. Several of my podcast guests have been Digital Nomads. Many of them prefer to be called "Citizens of the World".

Great discussion and really valuable insight. My only criticism is that the background track is extremely distracting

Interesting content (have listened to several episodes) but it's a painful experience. There is way too much noise underneath the speaker and/or used to "illustrate" the information being presented. Unfortunately, with this episode, I have finally been driven away and will be unsubscribing.
