    Sunday Hangout: F1, Tesla, and work

    Rob didn’t check his microphone and it was a bit hot – sorry about that!







    In this casual hangout episode, Alex and Rob talk about work, and about their vacation to Chicago that included go kart racing. This leads to a nice tangent about Formula 1 racing and of course a bit about Tesla too.

    Mini: Hello from Racket

    Hey, we’re trying out a new thing. You can ignore these if you want, it’s purely supplemental. If you’re looking to get more Sorry to get back on topic, or hopefully you’re interested in sending audio messages to the show, this is FOR YOU!

    Co-hosts converge

    Co-hosts converge

    This is the first time that hosts Alex and Josh meet! Rob managed to “double-book” both of them, and record an episode with everyone.







    Josh recently went to the hospital and shares his experience, which gets us talking about health care in general. There’s a lot more to this very complex issue than just our little anecdotes and it probably deserves some more conversation so just take it with a grain of salt. You are listening to some random person’s podcast, after all, not the New York Times.







    Rob makes an excellent segue from healthcare being inefficient to our work processes like “agile” and how pretty much any large company becomes inefficient. Maybe healthcare is just a terribly large company?

    Sunday Hangout: smart homes and future interviews

    Alex and Rob catch up on a lazy Sunday. We talk about some lesser-known smart home tools, and Alex wants to plan a post-marriage bachelor party!







    Thinking about future topics, we explore some ideas together but would love to hear what you think! More music, philosophy, science?







    Rob wants to talk more about Nils Frahm, a contemporary composer that does interesting and beautiful things with synthesizer and acoustic piano alike!

Entirely objectively speaking: the perfect podcast

I love this show! So fascinating to hear about other people, especially Rob :)

Hang out with some friends

I love this show just for the laid back, hangout feel. The show is super well edited with clips of music, information, and other background stuff that enhances the entire listening experience. The broad range of topics gives enough information to satisfy some curiosity and encourage you to learn beyond the discussion in each episode.
