About this Episode

We discuss WeWork vs. Regus, Cloudera, and tumblr. Plus, some clarifications on trans-dimensional bomb defusing.

Mood board:

  • You talk about the Pacific Northwest, but have you thought about Florida?
  • I could be like the 35 year old Andy Rooney.
  • Hey Google, where are my keys?
  • We’re driving off hosts at this point
  • Herbalife.
  • Funny logs.
  • Was it real money?
  • It’s probably cheaper than severance.
  • I am not following any of it.
  • Where’s Tim Wu when you need him?
  • This is Tumblr all over again.
  • Nothing but insects please.
  • Oh Andy Rooney, save me!
