Refactored #042: “Fun and Games”

On this episode of Refactored…

  • The Rona is rounding Castle Koehl, and the guys wind up discussing the different learning styles of their kids… the stubborn little adorable petri dishes that they are.
  • Frank talks about some of the games he’s backed on Kickstarter (shout out to Ender Lilies), and professes his love for the Metroidvania genre. Breath of the Wild is mentioned.
  • Frank learns that woodworking is a lot more common than he thought amongst techies. Chris claims it’s something to do with the tangible work product.
  • Chris points out an alternate definition for “escapism” which can actually be super beneficial for work/life balance.
  • “Strength and comfort cannot coexist,” said…no one, cause Frank screwed up the phrase. It’s “Growth and comfort cannot coexist.”
  • Can you teach motivation? The guys debate.
  • The pick of the week is a wireless availability indactor called the Luxafor Switch.
  • … and much more!
