This week on The Time of Monsters podcast, Jacob Silverman joins the show to discuss the reactionary politics of “the Paypal mafia.”
We are honored to have the one and only Steve Wynn on the show for this special episode. Steve is the founder of The Dream Syndicate — a band that emerged in Los Angeles in the early 80s as a keystone of the neo-psychedelic movement and crushed it with their 1982 debut album, The Days of Wine and Roses. Now celebrating the 40th anniversary of this spectacular initial effort, The Dream Syndicate is riding high with their most recent album release entitled Ultraviolet Battle Hymns and True Confessions, another stellar album by this storied band. Steve has enjoyed a long and successful solo career as well, and is simply a stellar human, amazing musicologist and continually psyched to be playing music to his legion of fans around the globe.
Kurtis chats with Jim Shooter about taking over writing the Avengers and the state of the Marvel Bullpen in the 70s. This is a companion episode to Avengers, Ep. 9: The Final Threat.

Tailwind CSS creator Adam Wathan joins Jerod, Nick, & Feross for an in-depth discussion of his trending utility-first CSS framework. We cover why everyone complains about CSS, how Tailwind began and how it gained popularity, how developers use with Tailwind and integrate it into their workflows, and how Adam has managed to build a business around the project. Thanks, Bette Midler!
Adam Wathan has been obsessed with computers since he was a kid. In fact, he was introduced to computers by his 1st grade librarian.. and his first programming project was using Q-Basic, following a tutorial on how to make a pro wrestling simulator.
During his time in university, he wasn’t enjoying the programming curriculum and ended up dropping out to play in his band, and working odd jobs to support his music career. During this, he got into the production side of music, and started a home studio to record local bands. Four years after he quit programming, he started tinkering with the same framework used to make Winamp – called reaper – and fell in love with pogromming all over again. At this point, he tried school again, but post internship, he decided to go straight into the field without finishing his degree.
These days, he is married with a young family. Besides staying busy with that, he still finds time to play games with his remote friends, and occasionally trains for powerlifting. He met his business partner, Steve, in college, and hacked on side projects together. These side projects led to the creation of a mini CSS framework, which Wathan started using throughout other projects, growing it into something he was quite proud of. In fact, while live-streaming some coding, he was surprised by the influx of people asking what it was… and where they could get it. He decided to open source the framework in 2017, and it has steadily grown and grown in usage – to the tune of millions of downloads a month.
In this episode, Adam is joined by Jonathan Reinink to discuss Tailwind CSS, a new utility-first CSS framework that they just released. They talk about what Tailwind is, how it works, and what makes it different than component-based frameworks like Bootstrap or other utility frameworks like Tachyons.
