Sometimes a conversation is full of… how can I say this? Tenuous connections. Abrupt changes of topic, subject matter, and tone is often the way a real-life conversation goes. And this week, Dave and I are joined by our friends Nick Rynerson and Richard Clark to talk about, well, pretty much everything—including their new podcast network, Area Code. Listen in as we discuss:
- Conspiracy theories and the power of the word “Consider” to make anything sound sinister
- Finding the Dark Web
- What is the Area Code Network and why are we talking about it on our show?
- Why Nick needs to read our meeting requests
- How good a job I’m doing at being my own executive assistant
