“The Future is RIGHT NOW!”
“Wanna make fire? These are matches!”
We’ve been working for a few days trying to move everything over to our new home at SquareSpace! Thanks to the folks over there for designing our new site, which we think fits the overall themes of our little club quite nicely.
We’re still working on getting the podcast buttons and Twitter links set up, but what do you think so far? Like the new design? Some of you may still get the old page while the DNS changes take place, but by the end of the day it should be good to go for everyone.
Scott Johnson joins us to talk about why we have all these awards shows, review the late night controversy, and lament the nature of the spinoff.
