This Tuesday is election day in the U.S. and citizens sure seem more fired up about it than usual. We’re avoiding the politics to focus on why getting the vote out is important and why some people still don’t do it. Mike’s Dad is our special guest to give us context from the perspective of a precinct election judge to understand how polling places are run and how they can be vital to a community.
Americans will spend over $9B on Halloween this year – and about a third of that will be on costumes! This week, we talk about the good, the bad and the INSANE costumes that we’ve found online. We also revisit some of our favorite costumes of the past and we discover that glitter pumpkin butts are a thing.
It’s that time of year again to stock up on goodies to hand out to dressed up kids all over your neighborhood. But why are these candies so weird now?! Join us as we taste some Halloween candy, discuss our favorites from childhood and talk through the weird flavors and names of today’s treats.
This week was
disgusting fun because we got to watch each other react to some truly horrible unique Halloween candy. While we found some that we liked, I think we’ll be sticking with our usual favorites this season.
Check out our Instagram for some fun clips of us taste-testing some of the candy from this week’s episode.

We finally bought a house… and it was a tedious process full of so many twists we didn’t see coming. This week, we talk about some of the ins, outs and gotchas of buying a home with some quick tips for future buyers. We also talk about Oculus Connect and CA Great America’s Haunt!
The first in our mini-series about buying a house… cuz we just did! Looking for the right house was fun, but surprisingly challenging! Join us on our trip through some “catfish” houses, homes with no floors and the BBQ Ranch that we will soon call home!
We’re back after a long hiatus! We took a bit of a summer break to focus on work and house hunting. We’ve been traveling, hanging out and debating the song of the summer!
It’s Memorial Day weekend and while most are out enjoying sunshine, pools and barbecue, it’s a good time to reflect on our history and what this day is actually about. This week, we look at the history of Memorial Day and some of the lesser known stories of those who have died serving our country.
We moved to Silicon Valley in 2013 to try something new and make progress toward the goal of owning a home. 5 years later, home ownership doesn’t seem much closer, so we’re not quite sure why we’re here anymore. Should that even be a goal? It’s time to talk it out!
The chaos happening in on the Big Island of Hawaii got us thinking about just how many volcanoes are around the globe. This week, we take a quick look at volcanoes near us and the risks they pose. Plus Steve gets amped up about overly dramatic volcanoes in pop culture.
Virtual reality (VR) has been going through a resurgence over the past few years with some really cool ideas, but… nobody seems to know exactly what to do with it yet. This week, Mike explored VRLA to see some of the new ways developers are using VR, from art and education to PTSD therapy for veterans. We also tried out The VOID Star Wars Experience in Los Angeles!
