    #79: A life without computers (with Chris "CJ" Johnson)

    CJ is the VP of Engineering at Phase2 technology and he has a truly dope website (http://tekante.com/). We talked about a bunch of random stuff. It's hard to boil it down to a description, so just listen to it. Any conversation with CJ is a good one.

    And lots of other sci-fi-ish questions about death and immortality. Plus much giggling.

    #77: The macroeconomics of bears in gay culture

    Critter wants to make 2022 his year of adventures, but his definition of "adventure" makes Jace grumpers. Jace talks more about his multi-year long habit of waking up every day and having to convince himself not to kill himself.

    #76: Jace hates holidays

    Jace is a scrooge, which surprises no one. Critter gets excited about Crossfit randomly without ever trying it. We both have trouble deciding what exactly counts as "work".

    #75: Does wanting to be liked help or hurt as a leader? (with Erik Summerfield)

    #75: Does wanting to be liked help or hurt as a leader? (with Erik Summerfield)

    Erik's been on the show a few times and deserves no introduction. As usual, Erik takes the opposite side from the rest of the world and still ends up winning the argument. We also got into the topic of being passionate about the process vs. about the problem space. Interesting discussion as it always is when Erik's around.

    #74: Addicted to videogames (with Critter's 3-year-old Thomas)

    Thomas crashes the party for the first 15 minutes or so, then takes off when mom gets home. After that, Jace and Critter get into depression, videogame addiction, and Jace's morning routine. Rollercoaster of an episode.
