This week Fraser and Federico welcome special guest Merlin Mann to discuss opportunities for improvements that may - or may not - arrive in iOS 11.
Get your cowboy hat and your favorite Radiohead playlist, because it’s time to venture into the park for our first-season review of HBO’s “Westworld.” Is Anthony Hopkins running Westworld the park or “Westworld” the show we’re watching? Why can’t the Man in Black take a hint? Who is good and who is evil? Are the hosts sympathetic characters or empty, scripted shells? (And can’t you ask that question that about any fictional character?) We provide some quick analysis and also ponder where the show might take us in season two.
Ben and James discuss the Trump election, filter bubbles, and the responsibility of the tech industry.

Several years ago I wrote a blog post on salary negotiation for engineers. This probably created more value than anything else I’ve ever written — I have a folder in Gmail with thank-you messages from people, and my running total is something north of $2.3 million in added salary per year, mostly in $15k to $25k chunks.
A buddy of mine, Josh Doody, has decided to thoroughly own this area, and published a book (Amazon link) on the topic. I rather enjoyed the book, and thought I would have him on the podcast to talk about the topic in more detail.
[Patrick notes: As always, the below transcript occasionally has my thoughts inserted in this format.]
What you’ll learn in this podcast:
- How to avoid the “What is your desired salary?” question
- How to trade off across multiple axes when doing a salary negotiation (salary, vacation days, equity, etc)
- How to get raises after being hired
A few weeks ago we presented you some stories about a terrifying underground industry in America. An industry in which middle and upper-class families pay tens of thousands of dollars to have their children kidnapped in the middle of the night and sent to rehabilitation centers. These ‘troubled’ teens ares sent away for reasons ranging from getting caught smoking pot, to getting bad grades, to having a new step-parent that just plain doesn’t like you.
These unregulated rehab centers across America are often hyper-religious and don’t require their counselors to have any formal training, resulting in systematic mental, physical and sometimes sexual abuse. The worst part is: the parents have no idea. They’re told ahead of time that their kids will lie, beg and make up tall tales to get out of these camps, and to ignore these pleas as it’s all part of the healing process. While preparing for our podcast (www.cracked.com/podcast/the-horri…en-rehab-centers/) a few weeks ago, we came across a story so harrowing and unbelievable, we just had to make it it’s own episode.
Jack O’Brien and Robert Evans are joined by Darlene Molina, who recounts her story of being sent to two camps, getting kicked out of one, and escaping the other. Also make sure to get your tickets to the next live podcast taping on Wednesday, March 9th at 7pm at the UCB Sunset Theatre. Jack O’Brien, Carmen Angelica, Dan O’Brien, Alex Schmidt, and Jake Weisman will discuss all the ways our dogs and cats are more powerful, creepy, and awesome than we ever could have imagined.
