This is actually a double — well, quadruple — update. I missed the summary last week, so you get four at once. Four high quality, like-new podcasts, for the low, low price of $0.

Let’s start with Systematic. On episode 241 I had Tyler Hall on. He’s a Mac and iOS developer who has consistently created amazing software, always with the purpose of solving a problem he himself has, but crafted in a way that makes them accessible and useful to many others. In some ways I think of him as a kindred spirit, so it was great to chat with him.

On episode 242 I spoke with the delightful Alex Cox. They co-host Two Headed Girl and Do By Friday, and I’ve been a fan of theirs for a few years now. We caught up and dove into a discussion about gender, bipolar disorder, and virtual reality, among other topics. It was an excellent conversation.

Meanwhile, episode 208 of Overtired was titled “More Things to Not Talk About at Dinner” and basically serves as a guide to topics that should generally be avoided at family gatherings. Unless your family is just down for anything. Veganism, politics, religion, we hit ‘em all.

On Overtired 209 we stuck more to drugs, mechanical keyboards, and Microsoft Excel, though we did dip again into politics. How can you not right now? We recorded this one pretty early in the morning and that actually seemed to make it even more energetic. Guess us insomniacs are good morning people.

I’d also like to mention that I’ve started a Discord server for Systematic and Overtired listeners. There’s already a great community forming there, and I’d love it if you joined us!

Getting yourself counted in my download stats (and maybe checking out the sponsors now and then) is all you have to do to support either or both shows!
