iWon’t Pay

hn0014 artworkJust in time for this week to not be over, it’s our latest podisode! We recount our (mostly uneventful) memories of  the September 11th attacks, including the fact that we moved in together that week. We give our thoughts on the big Apple shindig (and its seriously buggy live stream) that went down earlier this week. (iPhone 6? Apple Watch? Meh…) Hear about our exciting adventure in troubleshooting a leaky faucet! And then… scanning and shredding 21 months worth of documents! We also went over some listener feedback and talk about how a disappointed billionaire won’t be able to carve California into six individual states. And more!

A 10,000-word treatise:

Pod Dodo

We’re back with our latest pod! It’s a rare and special show where Jen actually describes herself as “OK!” We tackle some heavy topics such as dreams and how to define “success.” Is coding/programming the only sure bet left in life in terms of paying work? Does money = love? Or is being acknowledged by strangers the only true expression of real love? Is it better to focus on short-term gains and move on? Or is it better to go for the long haul? We discussed the phenomenon of “Internet pile-ons,” specifically the Ice Bucket Challenge and the death of Robin Williams. I recount the story of a crazy guy who asked me about the Battle of Armageddon. We went over some listener feedback and more!

Dreams:

Electric Man and Undervolt!

hn0009 artworkWe’re Starbuckin’ it! Live with hula girls and balloon animals! Not really. We had a conversation about how maybe it’s not so good that we’re married to each other because sickness, disabilities, etc. But it’s likely that normals wouldn’t put up with either one of us for long so maybe it’s all worked out for the best. We’re really killing it in terms of money. We’re doing so well that Jen actually qualifies for Medi-Cal! We’ve got bus-riding refugee kids on the Sweet Pickles Bus. Not really. We recounted the coincidences in which we might’ve met earlier in life (but didn’t). We read some listener comments. Jen’s got another unintentionally funny post from Bubblews. And more!

Pumps Of Base

hn0008 artworkWe’ve still got “leftover” stories from our Las Vegas trip, including mean people on airplanes. Flight attendants with special airplane-healing powers and crazy coffee-drink customers. We received an odd solicitation in the mail from the ‘California Compliance Center?” Pretty sure that’s not legit. We’ll be eating well in August thanks to a gift card we got last year but didn’t redeem until now. Tho, it was unclear at first if the gift card was still valid. Jen read a post from the site Bubblews that was hilarious, but it probably wasn’t meant to be. And more!

Make me got the famous:

Pre-Retired

hn0004 artworkHyper Nonsense! We are the pod that comes to you straight from the heart of California. San Luis Obispo (Sanluiton) to be exact. On this exciting episode, we talk about how The Man is sticking it to us for starting our own business. I had a cool “customer service” experience on behalf of a local musician. We talked about “binge-watching” of TV shows and why we don’t do it. We honored the mystical land of Canadia with a special performance of O, Canadia. We wonder how it’d be possible for Hyper Nonsense to become the first podcast on Mars. Ceiling-breaking cupcake-eating bears, we got ’em. The most annoying phrases that we’re all overusing? We got those, too.

Death By Gull

hn0003 artworkSome somber news to report, including a diagnosis of pterodacylism (with random outbursts of pterodactyl speak). We recap our experience at the Classic Car Show in Pismo Beach, CA. That lead to a lengthy discussion about the humanities (?) and the declining nature of car culture in America. We speculate on why some people who ride buses are some combination of anxious/depressed/sad.  We talk about how gullwing car doors are cool but deadly. We review a sorta nautical-themed eatery. We went over the feedback we’ve received since the last show. We read an article about “bedtime procrastination.” And more!

Bulleted points in a list:

Space Train

hn0002 artworkWe’ve done it! Yes, it’s true. We’ve successfully doubled the number of episodes we’ve produced so far. In honor of this milestone, we’ve decided to end the show. Just kidding! How could we quit now? We’ve got listeners leaving us comments, tweets, even calling us at home in the middle of the night! We’ve got new audio gear and we’re happy to tell you about it, even if we do have “more money than sense” in buying all of this stuff. We also discovered that the Australian prime minister has apparently been listening to our pods for years. Star Wars references! We got those, too. And daring helicopter-based escapes from Canadian prisons.
