About This Episode

This is kind of a miserable week and please don't ask about episode 5. It doesn't exist and you can't convince us otherwise. Anyways we tackle such subjects as loot boxes, just how much the FCC doesn't care about being as evil as possible, Equifax continued incompetence, the demise of the Windows phone, and more!
