24. Mining Solid Water

The big topic this week is spaaaaace. It's the final frontier, and we only manage to get a glimpse at the tip of the space iceberg that would almost assuredly sink the space Titanic. It's a fun episode peppered with talk about beer, some truly awful celebrity impressions, and a lot of slap-happiness that will surely make you smile.

There were also two cool things this week:

Keenan: Microsoft's Word Flow keyboard for iOS.

Charles: The new recommendation-focused social network, REX.

23. Basic Human Urges

This week, we switch things up and talk about cool things first! Then we spend some time talking about the current state of the Internet, specifically with regards to people's need to publicly express their outrage over damn near everything. We also explore how the current environment might manifest itself in the near future.

You won't need many additional links for this episode, but I want to call special attention to one:

  • The Bloomberg View article about the Yale study on Internet outrage.

Also, turns out Charles really doesn't like discussing mouths, throats, and their various stages of lubrication. So enjoy that wonderful journey.

22. Uber Out of the Apocalypse

The Limitless Hiatus is over. We're back with a new, (hopefully) more focused offering. Charles and I realized that with our current work/personal schedules, coupled with the ambition of doing a weekly current events-focused episodes, that we needed to rethink how we approach the show. This is the first step, and I think it does a decent job of staying on target.

We talk a lot about The Division this week. How we feel about the game, what it's missing, and even what our own knee-jerk reaction to the apocalypse would be, should something terrible happen.

Here are some helpful supplementary links for this episode:

  • APStylebook's tweet about lowercasing the Internet.
  • The Division's awesome and beautiful outbreak simulator.
  • The 10 Cloverfield Lane trailer. Go see this movie.

21. Happy Max

It didn't even take us a month to completely obliterate our resolution to get back on a consistent recording schedule. Mostly because resolutions are bullshit and being an adult can be hard sometimes. Regardless, Charles and I were able to snag some time in front of our mics and record an episode we ultimately really enjoy.

I dive a little bit into some behind-the-scenes #NoOctothorpe stuff. If you're curious why I've been posting less and less on the site, this will give you a glimpse into what's been happening. We also talk about the very related subject of "imposter syndrome."

Other things that make an appearance on this episode: Mad Max: Fury Road; Charles' cat, Ted; drone racing (and also eagles who are being trained to take drones down). And we also discuss some cool stuff.

Charles' cool thing this week (aside from his new TV): The Propaganda Game

My cool things this week: this video of the NSA director being smart and awesome. Also the new iOS game, Twofold Inc. Seriously, it's $4. Go buy it right now.

Don't forget to follow the Limitless Adventure Spotify playlist that we continuously update with new music that we're digging. We've heard some excellent feedback about it so far. Glad it seems to be working out.

20. Electric Granny

Between me getting sick and Charles being overworked, we felt a little scatterbrained this week. We managed to make something interesting out of a meandering discussion, which included diving into some rumors about the iPhone 7 and Microsoft.

We also discussed our favorite David Bowie tracks and added them to our fantastic new Spotify playlist that you should totally be following.

There's some ranting on how much of a disaster CES is, and autonomous automobiles make an appearance. In general, you should expect some general silliness strewn about.

A smattering of show notes for you, dear listener:

  • Charles' favorite image ever.
  • My piece commenting on this Quartz article about Spotify's Discovery Weekly playlist.
  • MacRumors article on the iPhone 7 ditching the headphone jack.
  • A mighty fine CES video.
  • Articles about GM and Ford investing in autonomous vehicles.
  • Dustin Curtis' post on experiencing an autonomous Tesla. Also, Elon Musk's Twitter prediction about Tesla's own autonomous plans.
  • Fautrier paintings.

My cool thing for this week: "The Commander Thinks Aloud" by The Long Winters [Spotify | Apple Music] (yes, this is also on the Limitless Adventure playlist). Listen to the track at least once, and then give this episode of Song Exploder a listen and have your mind blown.

Charles' cool thing for this week: the Freakonomics episode, "The True Story of the Gender Pay Gap. "

19. Let's Call Him "Flappy"

Thank God, the holidays are over (the word of the week is "curmudgeon"). We're (hopefully) set to get our shit back on track with a more consistent schedule.

This week, we dive in and discuss a variety of topics, including: becoming old fuddy-duddies (as Charles says) and getting left behind by technology; Keenan switching back to Spotify; free Wi-Fi in NYC, and the possible privacy issues stemming from that; and swearing as a sign of intelligence.

You better believe we've got some links for you. Take a gander:

  • Music video for "I Won't Let You Down" by OK Go.
  • Trailer for Spring, a horror film with some interesting drone camerawork.
  • New York City's free Wi-Fi.
  • My post about voter registration details being leaked.
  • The study on swearing, as well as an article that summarizes it (for those of you who don't want to pay to read a scientific study, but please, dear God, make sure you have your content blockers enabled for that site).
  • BADLAND 2. Seriously. $5. Buy this game. It's a steal.

Since I decided to switch back to Spotify, we thought it'd be a great idea to add a few extra ways to get your Limitless Adventure infusion. We've started a collaborative playlist. Go ahead and give it a follow. The plan is to make it a living list that reflects the music which enraptures us at the moment. It should change frequently.

Also you can follow Charles or myself on Spotify if you'd like to dig in and see the other shit we listen to.

18. Paranormal Activity Charles

We're back, and very, very pleased with how this episode turned out. We kick things off with some talk on déjà vu, which then tumbles into dreams, which then progresses to sleepwalking, until we find ourselves back in déjà vu. It's almost as though it was planned.

We also talk about professional douchebag, Martin Shkreli, and his arrest, as well as old dudes bemoaning Millennials, like that isn't a huge fucking cliché or anything. Lots of French words here.

Here's a few notable links to things we reference throughout the show:

Bonus: Full Interview with John Stark

After the great reception from our previous episode–especially to the featured interview–we decided that the entire conversation Charles had with his dad, John, was just too good not to publish in its entirety.

So here you go, the first bonus episode of Limitless Adventure: a raw and unedited interview that covers the gamut of providing insight into working for the CIA, advanced interrogation techniques, Donald Trump, social media, and all of the great stuff that made it into the edited interview. Now with additional context!

Due to the nature of Skype recordings, the audio does fail to maintain its fidelity multiple times. We regret this and apologize for any inconvenience. We live in the future, but not too far into it just yet.

Keep an eye out for the next real episode of Limitless Adventure, available soon. We promise after the holidays we'll get significantly better about maintaining some consistency.

16. Hypothetical Backdoor Situation

Here's a new episode you can be thankful for. Right? Right? Because Thanksgiving? I was tempted to wait an extra day to release this, but you've all waited so long already, I didn't want to hold it back any longer. There was some extra coordination and production that went into making this episode extra special. We're very excited to unleash it on the world.

The main focus of this episode is encryption and privacy, specifically spurred by the conversation that emerged in the wake of the attacks in Paris. This led us to produce our first interview. John Stark (the man responsbile for creating Charles), former CIA agent, provided some insight into spying and how technology today plays a role. Charles and I then dive in after and discuss our own thoughts about the conversation he and his dad had. Obviously, with such a complex issue, we barely even scratch the surface.

Throughout the episode, we bring specific things up. Here are some links to help you along:

You may notice fancy music mixed in with this episode. The track is produced by James T. Green. Instead of list all the awesome things he does (including a fantastic podcast), you should just go to his site right now.

15. Ruse Gold

After unintentionally skipping a week, we're back with episode 15! A milestone. Exciting!

We talk about video games, and then some more things about video games. There's some other stuff, too, but the main topics we hit upon are: The Verge ruining Charles' day; cilantro ruining Keenan's life; Keenan's trepidation about selling his phone on Craigslist; recapping the Extra Life marathon; the New Xbox One Experience; wireless woes; building a PC; and things we're enjoying this week.

Some links to things we reference:
