Show notes:
  • Making a 180 degree GoPro head mount
  • Coincidence: The Great Muppet Caper
  • Pete hates that Amazon searches follow him
  • Bart hates FaceBook because, in part, it's an echo chamber. It also kept screwing with settings
  • Commies are bad, says patriotic 'Muricans
  • Pete makes sure we know he's not a commie sympathizer
  • We have a special guest, Casey! But only because she didn't know it at the time.
  • NSA is spying on Americans
  • Target knows when you're (probably) pregnant
  • So much information about us is out there...
  • Just because some paranoids were right doesn't mean all their ramblings are true
  • Shop for random things to screw with spying algorithms
  • Beware what images you use lest you are sued

  1. I found this Podcast to be very informative. I remember when I took a writing course on writing for children, I had to be very careful using pictures I found online for assignments. I usually had to get permission.
