Noah Kalina and Adam Lisagor try a new direct-to-consumer product every week, review it, unpack it and explore its space in our lives and its place in our culture.
What if you could meet someone on a website in 2007, collaborate on creative projects, and then start a podcast in a pandemic that reflected the highs and lows of consumerist culture, all from across the country? We tried that, and for a year and change, it was a bright spot in both of our lives. We called it All Consuming, and the takeaway? Don’t sleep on friendship, you guys.
Look around you. How do you know that the world is real? Photons of light and shadow dance around, take shape in lenses, get fed to sensors and translated to a central processor that tells you: yeah, this feels real. But um that’s how the Oculus Quest works. So I ask again: how do you know? Well you f****n don’t, so do your best and live it up, slappy.
Ever wonder what goes into making one of Noah Kalina’s world famous newsletters? Did you know Noah has a world famous newsletter? Is photography art? On this week’s show, Adam ducks out and our editor Paul fills in, as we answers these questions and more.
The thing about food is it’s usually shaped like the thing it is. But imagine a future where food is not shaped like that but rather it’s all one shape and that shape is square.

Cereal can be many things to many people. But Off Limits makes four flavors of cereal that’s more specific. Vegan, gluten-free, and daring in its choices, it represents a view of our culture that is fun, progressive, actualized, and has a strong point of view. And I, for one, am here for it. Grab your spoon.
What’s that? I can’t hear you with all that snot in your face. You should really wash that out. No, not with a Kleenex, not with a neti pot. With something different, something with power. Something thought leaders are calling a bidet for your face. It’s Naväge saline nasal irrigation, and it just might change your life. Join along and blast those nose holes.
