Juan Ponce de Léon Has Been Found Dead in Palo Alto
The boys don their podcaster-approved maternity pants and #1 Fan Foam Fingers to hang loose and talk a little sports trivia before delving into the stories of the day : Bitcoin Bursts Bumblingly onto Scene in San Salvador!

IPCC You Later
The FiO Boys shake the sand from their sandals, bid farewell to the Maltese dogracing tracks and Dalmatian casinos of their month-long euro-style sabbatical and roll up their sleeves for a double-stuf'd return episode. At the top of the show, we talk $TSLA, vertical integration, and cross ourselves before exploring the fey and fallen phrase ''double full-time remote.'' Then we descend further still into the inky chasm of our apocalyptic imaginarium to talk climate change and the most recent IPCC report - only to kindle a small flame of hope at the bottom of that steaming, sultry abyss. >Check out Espresso Tempo on Apple and Spotify.>Read the full IPCC report here.
We were gone fishin' the last month but don't worry - we're back in the lab, monitoring our instruments and parsing the freshest, rawest intel for your consumption and enjoyment.
The Guys Who Pod About Goats
The FiO boys take a break from the news cycle and dig the clicker out of the cushions to review the 2009 'satire' film The Men Who Stare at Goats. Within, they mine it's gormless mediocrity for insights about the US security state, our collective relationship to the Iraq War, and George Clooney's face.>Check out Espresso Tempo on Apple and Spotify.
We bid a fond farewell to globetrotting sex maniac, sovereign citizen and antivirus impresario John McAfee and recount a few milestones from his bizarre, debauched time on Spaceship Earth. Then we talk last week's heatwave, why we'll never get to have an apocalypse, and finally run through a recent article explaining the myriad crimes and atrocities taking place at Airbnb's around the globe and their round the clock efforts to keep them covered up beneath a heap of cash and NDA's.>Check out Espresso Tempo on Apple and Spotify.>AirBNB Article in Bloomberg.
One Chimerican Gay Moon Government
The big special guys talk Apple being naughty, Amazon at it again, and the ongoing full-court press to stir up the good-hearted American into a tizzy about the red menace in the east - and why we should smile on our Chinese brothers and sisters and game with them instead of doing a nuclear war.>Check out Espresso Tempo on Apple and Spotify.
