Refactored #038: “Driving with the TV On”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • Frank changes careers; on track to become renowned NASCAR driver, sponsored by CoolerMaster.
  • Frank brings up Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings (no spoilers) and the guys wind up making a bevy of movie & show recommendations.
  • Frank makes a big deal about being a philosophy major. Weird flex, but ok bro.
  • Chris brings up Zoom Fatigue. Apparently, there is (PDF warning) some new evidence to suggest the struggle is real. Frank toggles his camera all the time, and Chris takes a lot of calls from the kitchen. The practical utility of this information is unclear. So good job, Chris.
  • Chris recommends walking. Because… y’know… health? or stuff?
  • The guys debate at some length the practical future of autonomous vehicles. Chris takes the bull argument, and Frank the bear. What is the power struggle here between Wall Street, Silicon Valley, and Mother Nature?
  • Frank has some strong words about UX (Re: CarPlay/Android Auto) while Chris is more phlegmatic.
  • … and much more!
