DIAR Episode #100

Take a listen to our 100th show! This episode tears into some old-school SOAD (also known as System of a Down), and wraps with a bit of Radiohead. The early conversation turns to the early days of computing, as the Internet launched into popularity. Who remembers the days of DOS and Oregon Trail? The dudes lived it. Eventually, they get into the stereotypes of the South as being backward. The talk then turns to Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and his not-so-subtle prayer rally that smelled more like a political rally. Later, the dudes chat about the growing world of sharing through online resources like apps. They talk about Uber, Lyft, Airbnb, and Couchsurfing as ways people connect for use of cars and lodging. Is it safe to deal with strangers from the Internet? Well, it's not like we haven't been dealing with strangers every day anyhow. How are sites like Craiglist any different? Calling a taxi cab, eating at a restaurant, or staying at a hotel are all similar activites that we don't give a second thought.
