    Porn: From Bra Ads to Broadband

    What are the effects of pornography on society?  Is it different now than it used to be?  Are there negative effects on today's youth that didn't exist just a few decades ago?  What's up with the No Fap movement?  Is it a real thing?
    All this and more will be discussed as well a trip down memory lane for discussion of 1st exposure to porn.  It is not what you might think.  Discussion of early 9600 baud porn and what the early days of internet porn looked like.

    The Retail Apocalypse, or If You Prefer, the Retail aPORNcalypse

    The Retail Apocalypse, or If You Prefer, the Retail aPORNcalypse

    This weeks episode is focused on the retail economy and what's changing and how it is changing the lives of those around us.  What does it mean for us?  Is the economy changing going to have local economic impacts?  Does it mean that we'll all use Amazon Prime, Walmart or Costco?  What does it mean for jobs for young people?  Is it really an apocalypse or just something natural.
    We also try, unsuccessfully, the come up with a way to shoe-horn in porn references since our last episode on pornography was so well received.
    Check this out.  What we predict today will become the barren wasteland of strip malls in the near future as the zombies roam the earth looking for black-Friday deals.
