06 - Quantum Computing Explained by a Dingus
I'm back from my unintentional hiatus. This week I discuss how Quantum Computing differs from Classical Computing, as well as what kind of change these machines will bring about.

05 - African American Music & its Influence on Western Culture
This week I have one of my good friends, David Forsyth on the show to talk about various instances where African American musicians have changed music as we know it.
NOTE: I state in this that the phonograph was invented in 1917, which is wrong because I'm an ignorant bitch, it was invented in 1877 (only off by 50 years nbd).
I don't have much for show notes this week but I do have a few links that may be interesting if you feel like exploring this topic a bit more.

01 - Outrage Culture & Social Media
It's a short podcast because I have a shit ton of homework and didn't do much planning on this one, but figured I would keep it short since listening to one guy talk can get boring after a while. Here's to more effort in the next episode!
