Ep. 057 - Apple credit card and Goldman Sachs algorithmic bias analysis and is cord cutting really working out the way we wanted it to?

November 21, 2019

In this episode, Bob & Kevin kick things off discussing all the various streaming services that are popping up as fast as javascript libraries were a couple years ago. After the break, they get into the meat of the episode and discuss the topic of algorithmic bias and the recent accusations against the Apple credit card and Goldman Sachs.

Ep. 056 - Is TikTok really a Huawei sized problem or is it the new cheap keyboard you just got - and did Edward Snowden foreshadow all of this?

Ep. 056 - Is TikTok really a Huawei sized problem or is it the new cheap keyboard you just got - and did Edward Snowden foreshadow all of this?

November 14, 2019

Bob & Kevin continue their crusade against sketchy tech practices and in this episode discuss how the U.S. Government is taking issue with Tik Tok because it is an app developed out of China and it might be stealing our data... but apparently Facebook, Google and the like are just fine, because the government can actually request any of their data - or so Edward Snowden says!

We talk about some other tech stuff too. Hey, as always, reach out to us at https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow and let us know what you like, what you don't like, or what you want to hear us discuss more of.

Thanks for listening!

Ep. 054 - Snowden speaks recap of Joe Rogan Experience #1368 with Edward Snowden and the implications of mass surveillance

Ep. 054 - Snowden speaks recap of Joe Rogan Experience #1368 with Edward Snowden and the implications of mass surveillance

October 30, 2019

Well, since everyone on the planet appears to be talking about Edward Snowden, we thought it was time that we weighed in. Bob & Kevin both recently listened to Mr. Snowden as a rare, remote guest on the Joe Rogan Experience (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=efs3QRr8LWw) so we had to talk about the episode and a bunch around mass surveillance, our darn cell phones and how facebook just ruins everything for all of us!

We also discussed how the US government is basically in a "no lose" situation with Snowden and that Ed is basically in a "no win".

Of course, we discussed the area in the Snowden interview where he brought up aliens... and we had thoughts!

October 25, 2019

In our latest episode, Bob & Kevin (self-proclaimed tech pundits) discuss the new release cycles for our major operating systems, the ettiquette (or lack there of) on stack overflow and how there is a definite developer drought in rural America. Listen for Bob's struggles with the word rural several times and try to coin the phrase "tech desert"

Kevin is desperately seeking a tech meetup in the middle of nowhere - can anyone help him out?

Bob & Kevin took some time to decunstruct the most recent #demDebate as it related to "big social" and the implications of social media in our current election cycle.

Somehow, we looped it all back to darn alien technology and propulsion that has yet to be figured out. F*cking aliens!!!

Ep. 048 - Assault vape pen ban, another Apple money grab with Apple Pro, the death of the gig economy and more

September 12, 2019

Wow did we cover a lot this week! We started with a rant from Bob on the near instant ban of flavored vape juice products in the wake of 7 deaths and still nothing to be done about guns in this country! We then moved on to discuss the recent iPhone 11 and the iPhone Pro - as you can imagine, neither Kevin, nor Bob are fans of most of what apple had to announce - but Bob expressed some interest in one of the new streaming services.

We also talked a little about a new Netflix show all in Russian and about sex bots... that was interesting! Oh, and we cannot forget AlienStock, also known as the new Fyre Festival :)

As always let us know what you think of the show by hitting us up on the tweeters! 

Seriously... DO IT!

August 30, 2019

In honor of the newly announced Matrix 4, Bob & Kevin tackle the tough (and trippy question) 'How do we know we are not living in a simulation or the Matrix already?'

We did a little bit of research (see links below), but mostly we just had our minds blown by things like "The Mandela Effect" and the "fact" that maybe Sinbad did not star as a genie in the movie Shazzaam in the 1990s... what the heck!

Anyway, we hope you like this one... peep our research links below, and let us know what you think!

March 26, 2019

Join your favorite technology consumer advocates Bob & Kevin as they discuss Facebook giving us a real-time, Black Mirror prequel. Bob & Kevin also take a deep look at the "new monopoly" in tech, which is basically coming up with the most ubiquitous platform imaginable... hardware, software, original content... you know, what Apple is trying to become with the release of their fill in the blank plus original content platform. Oh, wow, guess what, this is also straight out of a potential Black Mirror prequel... have you seen 'Nosedive'? or watched our YouTube episode - https://youtu.be/wX-_GNGZXG8 ?

Ep. 031 - Boeing Software Update and Parody Twitter Accounts - yes you @DevinCow

Ep. 031 - Boeing Software Update and Parody Twitter Accounts - yes you @DevinCow

March 21, 2019

This week might be one of our darkest episodes - at least early on. Bob & Kevin discuss the difficult subject of software and the recent Boeing tragedies. Unfortunately, the darkness carried on a bit when we discussed the responsibilities of tech/social giants like YouTube and Facebook in the wake of the New Zealand tragedy.

On an odd turn of events, we were able to look toward TWITTER to lighten the mood of the episode... all we can say is MOOOOOO! We closed things out with discussions around the recent Facebook outage and if we should have the rights to repair our super expensive cell phones.

We covered a lot, but we had some fun. Let us know if you liked what you heard! Hit us up at https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow

Ep. 029 - All In, Baby! Rapid fire role reversal and more - call for interns!

Ep. 029 - All In, Baby! Rapid fire role reversal and more - call for interns!

February 28, 2019

So, apparently Apple doesn't like episode numbers in titles any more... a topic for another episode for sure. In this non-numbered episode (sure we will play the game), Bob & Kevin switch roles and come up with some of the best audio quality to date (what took us so long?). Kevin drives the conversation with some difficult questions for angry Bob to deal with. Oh and we send out a call for interns - wanna work with two crazy old dudes that hate the idea of folding screen phones? Then you need to intern with the B&K Show! Hit us up on our tweeters, yo! https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow

Ep. 024 - The gender dropdown discussion

November 15, 2018

I wish we could say we were sorry for the click bait, but one of the topics we covered tonight was the dropdown menu for gender. You will have to listen to the episode to hear how we covered it, but trust us... it is something worthy of discussion. We also discussed how our combined journalistic talents are on par with the rest of the world of tech news, in our humble opinions... LOL

As always, give it a listen and let us know what you think! Until next week...

Richard Terris joins B&K from Glassgow to talk about producing an album and things that developers can do to fill their free-time. We talk travel, music, art and a little bit of the new Apple tech that was announced a couple weeks back. I hope you enjoy this one as much as we did recording it. You can check out Richards website at https://wailingrecluse.com/ and have a listen to a live cut from his album at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VfRPc2oWmKQ which we also feature in this episode. Enjoy!
