In the ongoing war between good and evil, Russell and Jelly just want to figure out which side they’re on. As they journey on their quest for clarity, they tear apart one topic at a time, leaving no doubt… or survivors.
How often do you consider how your life will be in the future? If the book of your life ended now, how would the epilogue read? Russell and Jelly discuss the concept of looking forward and planning for the unseen future, whether it’s scary or hopeful, and what they think the future might be like for them.
79: The End
Nothing lasts forever; eventually the heat death of the universe will claim us all. Russell and Jelly consider the ending of things from their lives—school, jobs, relationships, TV shows and podcasts—and how these experiences have affected them and shaped who they are.
78: Being Indie vs. Working for the Man
If you work for a big company, chances are, you’ve considered “going indie” at some point. The opposite is also true, as many indies pack up their things and join big companies in search of something different. Jelly and Russell consider the career moves they’ve made, and why they’d “sell out” if it ever came to that.
77: Basic Needs
If you’re hungry, or tired, chances are you’re not going to be able to reach your fullest potential. Russell and Jelly take a look at the concept of basic needs, how they affect us, and whether some of these needs can be offset with something like a “universal basic income”.
76: Fitness Trackers
Fitness trackers, from the Fitbit to the Apple Watch, are everywhere, and theoretically helping people improve their fitness, but are they all that they’re cracked up to be? To find out, Russell and Jelly look at how they exercise (or… don’t) and how fitness trackers have motivated them, both in the early days and after some time.
75: Digital Currency
From Bitcoin to Dogecoin, the internet is filled to the brim with digital currency, and both Russell and Jelly have toyed with the idea of making it rich. But with support still lagging, and a significant amount of bad press surrounding the idea, has digital currency had it’s day?
