Absurdism: Video Game Edition
Classic games are mostly absurd! We talk about video games and how fun and weird they are. It’s insane, for example, how popular Pac Man became. Then there’s this Italian plumber, but wait, he doesn’t fix a thing, he just travels through pipes, and is super athletic and kills weird shit? Got it so far, plus Mario's got something about mushrooms and that reminds us of Psychonauts, the best game ever, probably.

The intrepid Ned and Meg explore words that we have to hate now. Highlights include the perennially creepy but formerly benign word ‘moist’, the recent torture inflicted upon the word ‘literally’, plus regional variations on architecture and what we call our houses.

Inaugural Space Health Conference 2019
BONUS EPISODE! Ned and Meg go to the Inaugural Space Health Conference (yay!) in San Francisco (boo!) and we have a great but exhausting time. This episode was recorded after we got home from a road trip over three days and back so forgive us if we sound a little subdued. We learned so much! Space is great!

Design Volume 1
For our first podcast, Ned and Meg talk shit about design and why we like (and hate) it. We talk about our favorite designers and what we’ve learned, plus feedback loop on product design, economies of scale, and cell phones! Ned and Meg are super interested in design that gets used in space, including revising existing design to be more conscious of human interactivity and the experience of using the object or process.
