Disclaimer: Khiem's mic had a systemic problem that we did not notice until after we finished recording. We apologize for the sound quality.

These are the questions we addressed in this episode alongside the idea of experimental music and what Adarsh calls "The Radiohead Effect" before we got into our Lightning Rounds.
