  1. 015: Apple Kool-Aid and the Mongoose with John Siracusa

    John Siracusa made the Hypercritical podcast which is one of my all time favorites. He is also a gamer that somehow had fun with the Turok: Dinosaur Hunter series on the N64. He is currently part of the truly awesome Accidental Tech Podcast which he records with Marco Arment and nobody else.

    We somehow recorded a little episode of Neutral at the end.
