Show notes - Episode 472: I Bet Interpreters Wear Shoes

Morning, friends!

We packed a lot into the show this week, and that was after I dropped a huge bonus for the $3 patrons (coming soon!). A trip to NYC, new music, betting scandals, tech failures, and more. Let's do the stuff!

New music from Brooklane (3:13), scammers at the door (8:26), a quick NYC trip (19:39), alleged dying industries (35:16), tech failures in fast food (45:29), the Shohei Ohtani betting scandal (53:27), and a Flyers Update from The Captain (1:10:50).

Thanks to our friends for the new tune! Find more from them here and tell em Pat sent you!

Scammers at the door

Look, I'll leave myself open to the possibility that this guy who banged on my door and didn't identify himself was legit. But when someone shows up with a clipboard and doesn't introduce themselves? I will quickly gather that this is probably not a thing I want to deal with. I'll keep you posted if someone returns with more questions!

NYC adventures

New York City is a lot. Central Park is neat. I could never live there. (The medical screening stuff went well - still waiting on results.) But also: please do not take off your shoes and/or socks on trains. That is so gross and you are a bad person. Quit it! Also here's a picture I took in the park!

"This industry is dying"

I know that the internet is filled with nonsense. But this stuff? Man, you'd think no one does anything the way these dorks claim all of these industries are dying. Quick tip: If it makes money for a rich white guy? It's not dying.

Failing tech

I get it: Robots are the future or whatever. But when your fancy machine fails, you still need someone there so your business can operate. Fully relying on technology at this point is clearly a mistake. Pay the people to do the work!

Betting in baseball

I haven't seen any updates since I recorded the show, but this story is wild! Ohtani's interpreter is apparently a thief and also not a very good interpreter (or person?). What else will we learn about this dude?


Captain! We're almost at the end of the line. How many playoff updates does everyone think we'll get this year? I'll say two to be optimistic. Keep up the great work, my friend!


And that, as we say, is that! Thanks for coming along, my friends! Next week, we should be previewing WrestleMania 40. And if the timing doesn't work? Then we'll learn what comes next together. Until then, don't do anything I wouldn't do!

Crap open a cold one!
