We’re moving to Germany, on a plane with a parachute, taking selfies, reading Kindle Unlimited, listening to Neil Gaiman’s sexy voice on a Pono while playing with Jason’s blue balls! Also, Uber, Ayn Rand and the big fat lie.*
*Due to a slight Skype error we lost the first sentence of Media Candy. The band we’re talking about in the beginning of the segment is Kraftwerk.
