    Ep. 072 - Did President Trump's executive order just kill social media? And did Joe Rogan just re-define podcasting with his exclusive deal with Spotify?

    BREAKING NEWS!Yup, just the day before President Trump's history-making, executive order related to social media giants like Twitter and Facebook, Bob & Kevin were already discussing the implications of Trump's tweets being labeled as "fact check required". In fact, the boys even played out a couple "what if" scenarios - how accurate were they? Take a listen and find out!
    Oh, they talked about puzzles in the pandemic and Joe Rogan's big Spotify deal as well (weird, right?)

    Ep. 071 - Terms of Service (too long didn't read) and we talk thick and thin javascript clients for fun

    Ep. 071 - Terms of Service (too long didn't read) and we talk thick and thin javascript clients for fun

    Pop quiz for you Bob & Kevin Show listeners - when was the last time you COMPLETELY read a terms of service agreement for a website or software you have used? Yeah, we don't think we ever have either. Enter the hero of our story (sort of) https://tosdr.org/!Yup, this site has a plugin that we eventually determined is quite helpful, but the site itself also gives you a quick snapshot of how crappy most companies are about their terms of service. Anyway, check it out and let us know what you think.We also took some time at the beginning of the episode to discuss React JS and other javascript frameworks and how they impact front end web development.

    Ep. 070 - Bob & Kevin solve the grocery store of the future and universal government digital identification

    Ep. 070 - Bob & Kevin solve the grocery store of the future and universal government digital identification

    Okay, solve maybe a bit of a stretch, but in the era of social distancing and Covid-19 we think the word needs to take a hard look at what grocery shopping currently looks like and adopt some more digital and touchless solutions.The other softball topic (yeah right) we try to tackle involves the establishment of some sort of universal digital identification - you can probably guess where Bob rests on this issue, but you may be surprised on where Kevin ends up on the issue! Hey, if y'all can figure out where he stands on this, feel free to reach out and let us know, please ;)Let us know what you thought of this episode and feel free to ping us on social media with your thoughts on this episode or any of our others - Follow us on twitter at https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow.

    Ep. 069 - Social Engineering in the social distancing era and the creation of an official data monitoring service

    Bob & Kevin discuss the recent flood of "list your security question answers here" types of social engineering social media posts that have been all over our social feeds in the recent "COVID lockdown era" and a few more topics related to social engineering, personal data leakage and more.Amazingly, we actually feel like we DID solve some things in this episode, you will just have to listen to see what it is that we solved. In all seriousness, some good practical content in this episode (well at least we think so).Let us know what you thought of this episode and feel free to ping us on social media with your thoughts on this episode or any of our others - Follow us on twitter at https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow.

    Ep. 068 - Covid-19 catch up - mental health in a pandemic, tech issues under coronavirus and work from home in the new normal

    Yup, you knew it was coming - we had to discuss this beast and try to make some sense of it all - and yes, we had to take a tech angle as well. Bob & Kevin talked all things tech in a pandemic... well, not all things... but you know how we roll. We talked Zoom, bandwidth in the new #WFH era and more.

    Ep. 067 - International Space Station UFO Video, The Expanse and how they get space travel in the ballpark of correct

    Yup, here we are talking about aliens again! This time, we REALLY thought we had the definitive proof. It all started with this article: https://www.iheart.com/content/2020-02-26-nasa-captures-footage-of-ufo-on-space-station-live-cam/
    Then we watched the video:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X2eIcSs0zCQ
    Then we found an un-edited version:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SmbBJS89J_0 and we were still pretty excited.
    THEN we got a little skeptical when we could not find other "news" outlets covering it, until we stumbled upon these guys: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pWARgvKvvyg - the Rick & Bubba Show
    Anyway, we had a blast talking all things aliens, UFOs, IFOs and more.
    Let us know if you miss the full transcripts - or if you have better ideas how we should include them instead of just dumping them in the episode description. Feel free to ping us on social media with your thoughts on this episode or any of our others - Follow us on twitter at https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow.
