Comic Books - Eras, Graphic Novels, and Going Digital
I get the best seat on the sofa, a bowl of salty snacks, and dive in the world of super powers and cliff hangers with a stack of comic books. I explore the different eras of comic books, talk about discovering graphic novels, and how digital comic books changed everything.

Dog Grooming - Creative and Competitive
I grab some milkbone treats, tell my dog he's a good boy, and give him a makeover. Through necessity, I learn how to groom my cockapoo, Waffle, and learn to respect groomers. I learn about the controversial world of creative dog grooming and its competitions. And finally, I try to figure out what dogs think about all of this.

Reddit - The Front-page of the Internet
I scroll endlessly through Reddit, the so called "front-page of the Internet", and go down rabbit hole after rabbit hole in an effort to learn something useful to justify the time I spend on the largest community-based site on the Internet. I talk about how I curb bad habits, including focusing and system thinking.

Coffee - From Cuba to Chemex
This week I grind medium roast beans fine but not too fine, I get the water the exact right temperature, and I use one of the many coffee brewing techniques to try to make the perfect cup of coffee. I talk about learning to love coffee in Cuba and my experiences with the classic drip coffee machine, a French Press, and Chemex pour over coffee maker.

Hitchhiking - Travel and see the world for free
This week I learn all about hitchhiking. I'm curious about people who throw caution to the wind, stick out a thumb, and roll the dice on getting where they're going without getting murdered. Do people hitch out of necessity or is there a thrill to it that we're all missing? What about people who pick up hitchhikers? What goes through their minds?

Climbing Everest - Dangers, Costs, and Climbers
This episode is a bit different. When I learn about a hobby, I set out to actually try it. Obviously, it's not going to happen with climbing Everest, but after reading Into Thin Air, probably the most popular account of climbing it, I had to learn more about it and the people who do it. Think of this as a book report.
