    Keith starts the chat with the wonderful encouraging topic of surviving another layoff. Keith pours some out and then made it rain.

    Keith and Jamie then chat about maybe stopping this podcast? You'll have to listen I guess.

    Keith starts with some excuses on why he's not doing anything but painting figurines. Seriously. It get's better as Jamie tells a joke from NextDoor™.

    Keith continues blabbering about Spotify, staffs, and teams that have the runs. He never sent me a picture.

    Jamie talks about the friend term sheet he got for Kyber. Jamie then talks a bit about Tatsu. Snoozefest!
