More
Believe it or not, if you wanted to play video games before 1989 you had to do it while sitting at home like some kind of chump. That all changed with Nintendo's Game Boy, which appealed to little kids and traveling businessmen alike. On its 30th birthday, we celebrate the Game Boy, discuss the best games and for some reason we talk about its tech specs for a really long time.

CBD

Look, we're not drugs people but this week we're talking about something drugs-adjacent, so be cool.

It’s our 500th episode and what better way to celebrate than having two heroes (Tim and Tom) pay tribute to another hero, Captain Chesley Burnett “Sully” Sullenberger III, the US Airways pilot responsible for the Miracle on the Hudson 10 years ago this week after two goddamn birds tried to take everything away from him.
