    Introduction to "Corona Virus (COVID-19) - Update Episode October "

    In this episode of the Lifestyle, Travel & Technology podcast, the hosts Alexander and Garry scan through and analyze the internet on the rising numbers of people testing positive for the Corona Virus. Despite the increase in numbers of positive testing, the number of people being sent to the ICU has not increased at the same rate, which for many governments is a positive sign.  Despite this, governments around the world are limiting movement within cities as well as placing neighboring and risk countries on a blacklist.

    Even Trump was tested positive recently, after the first 2020 presidential debate. Only after 4 days did he return to office. Wouldn't he still be contagious?

    Introduction to "Tech usage in the Philippines "

    In this episode of the Lifestyle, Travel & Technology podcast, the hosts Alexander and Garry look into the usage of tech related products and services in the Philippines among Filipino's and Filipina's. Alexander being half Filipino, he knows that social media is a big thing among the people in the Philippines. Sure, social media is a big thing for a lot of us, but the Filipino's on average spend around  50 hours a week on their preferred social media platform overtaking most of Europe.

    Unlike many countries in Europe that are considered to be very conservative when it comes to anything tech related, the Philippines is trying to become a key player within the tech industry. They want to achieve this by implementing a Blockchain-based network for legal documents as well as salary's, which is being tested by the central bank of the Philippines. It is also the very first country, where their central bank are open to this emerging trend and are testing it out and even offering incentives for any company to set up their headquarters in the dedicated economic area called CEZA.

    Introduction to "Hunting Adolf Hitler"

Alexander tuned in to one of "Joe Rogan Experience" podcast episodes, where Tim Kennedy appeared as a guest and promotes a show, he was a part of - "Hunting Hitler". Tim explains the theory and adds a short backstory for context.

    Based on this JRE episode and History channel's TV show "Hunting Hitler" the hosts of the LTnT podcast discuss various areas they picked up watching either TV show or podcast episode. They highlight some overwhelming details like the infamous, supposedly Nazi camp "Colonia Dignidad" now named "Villa Baviera", which is a Bavarian inspired village established by emigrant Germans that fled in post-World War II, known for the internment, torture and murder of dissidents during General Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship.

    iOS vs Android

    Introduction to "iOS vs Android"

    In this episode of the Lifestyle, Travel & Technology podcast, the hosts Alexander, Garry & Nikki go over the battle between the two titans of mobile operating systems - Google's Android and Apple's iOS. First, the hosts mention what phones they preferred using over the years with the accompanying operating system that comes with the phone. Alexander then goes through some statistics regarding the performance of each operating system and their respective features they offer to consumers.

    At first glance, it is clear that Apple products and its OS are - on the spectrum of low-end to high-end products - rather leaning towards the high-end side, whereas Android based products have a wider range, offering anything from budget-friendly to expensive premium products.

    Nikki - "...for Apple's standards that is pretty cheap..."
