Show notes - Episode 417: Keep Your Cups Off My Bot

Morning, friends!

The Internet gave me a lot to talk about this week, so I guess it's not all bad. Office drama, retail issues, an AI episode, and more - let's do this!

After some quick updates Pat plays new music from here/now (7:28), then rants on retail theft (11:49) and office K-cup drama (28:22) before sharing an AI-written episode of the show (42:14) and getting a Flyers Update from The Captain (47:58).

Thanks to our friends for their new tune! Click the name up there to get it on Bandcamp and let em know Pat sent you (or not)!

Retail theft

I'm not going to share the video, but I do hope that the woman at that store was sent home for a bit at the very least. Retail (and loss prevention as I have learned today) employees are both trained to not accost potential shoplifters. The people praising this are gross and woefully misinformed.

I love that Reddit ruled this person who was bullied by their colleague was not the asshole. I don't have an update right now, but I do wonder if HR got involved with this incident. I hope there were some consequences for the co-worker's inexcusable behavior. Click the title to read the full story.

AI wrote an episode

I know this is part of the whole show, but since I shared the transcript I feel like I should post the episode on its own here. Fingers crossed that I did this correctly!


The Captain called for GM Chuck Fletcher's tenure to end. Of course this was recorded on March 9 and what do you think happened on March 10? That's correct: The Flyers relieved Chuck Fletcher of his duties. This is good of course, but couldn't they have given us a heads up for the show?


And that, my dear friends, is that. Thanks for joining me as always. We will have a guest next week (Peter Hunt Szpytek) and hopefully a guest each week after that until April 8. If that changes, you get just me and we can have some fun. Until then, don't do anything I wouldn't do!

Crap open a cold one!
