  10. Note To Self: Listen to your voicemail

    To close out 2015, we want to leave you the way we started it: with one of our favorite Gizmodo stories from writer Leslie Horn (she’s now at Deadspin). It starts out like this:

    Listen above to hear a story of mourning, family, and a piece of technology that – love it or hate it – still has the capacity to connect us in ways texts, emails, and all the rest just can’t. It’s a podcast ode the humble voice recording.
