In Episode 13 Miró and Kath play a guessing game of, “Hipster, Homeless, or Halloween?” They review The Martian (both the book and the movie), “workshop” Kath’s addiction to The Challenge (a reality show to trump all reality shows), and talk about when it’s appropriate for one colleague to say to the other, “Hey there little sunshine.” SPOILER ALERT: Never! So here’s where the audience participation comes in:

Episode 2: In A World… Where Everything’s Free

Kathryn and Miró wax poetic about Tig Notaro and how Trevor Noah needs to take page out of her book. But should he delete those terrible tweets? Should we all have the “Right to be Forgotten”? Also, why Tidal may not be the end of the world.

Oh, and Kath reads a gorgeous Yeats poem.
