Have You Thanked Your Fridge Today?

This is TIC TEK TOE, episode 015. Today, Marcel and Evan visit the afterlife in VR, consider the world’s loudest 21 seconds of silence, consider some Microsoft and Open Source conspiracy theories, wonder at the beauty of chroma key and Zoom backgrounds, mourn over the graves of many failed products, ask the tough questions about when good news becomes bad news, and generally chat about how we never cover the topics we think we’re going to cover.¬†
