April 26, 2018 at 4:00PM • 1 hour 7 minutes

This week, Tommy and Adam break down how we build our realities and the less-obvious reasons why technology has made it much more difficult to tell fact from fiction. Ultimately, what's real and true may have less to do with an objective reality and more to do with the process that creates the subjective realities we all experience as individuals.

Hosted by Adam Dachis & Darren Herczeg.


On Taking Pictures #313: No One Wants To Be In A Cover Band Forever

April 25, 2018 at 8:30AM • 1 hour 15 minutes

This week, we’re circling back to an earlier discussion around style and whether you choose your style (and maybe even overall aesthetic) or your style chooses you. Also, do you recognize the point at which emulating or being inspired by your artistic heroes became something more unique? Plus, planned obsolescence, photography in video games and do we really need a digital 8x10 camera? Ara Güler is our Photographer of the Week.

Hosted by Bill Wadman & Jeffery Saddoris.

Dan was cleaning out his garage, and Merlin has a lot to say about the philosophy and practical components of getting rid of junk at scale. Also, Dan really kills it on eBay.

Merlin is very excited about Fantastic Four coming back and has some potential warnings about the new Wes Anderson film. Spoilers: there's nothing weak about knowing what freaks you out.

Also, the boys discuss why Merlin changed his mic setup. Which is fascinating.
