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 ?

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

Well, in this week's episode, Bob & Kevin kick things off discussing a recent Joe Rogan Experience podcast episode with Jack Dorsey, Vijaya Gadde & Tim Pool because, well, it was an amazing cast on an amazing show. The funny thing is, when we listen to shows like that, we get a TON of validation of our topics for discussion. At about the midway point... we actually broke into the INTENDED topic for the show - encryption backdoors... and the ethics of such things!
The conversation was kicked off by a published paper that Kevin found online and our on-going debate about tech and ethical choices. The paper can be found here: https://digitalcommons.spu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?referer=https://www.google.com/&httpsredir=1&article=1062&context=honorsprojects and the discussion is in the audio file attached with this episode... so what are you waiting for? Hit the play button already!

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!

Well, it has been a minute, as the kids say, but Bob & Kevin are back at it with a fun new episode where we discuss about the control of truth, various conspiracies and how social media contributes. We discuss the roles that big social play in the spread of mis- and dis-information and the potential personal implications of our own social media accounts in the process!

We jump back into it this week after both of us have been crazy at work, traveling all over, and just dealing with everything that life has been throwing at the two of us the past couple of weeks. Don't worry, we still talk about twitter and facebook... we even discuss the new facebook video calling thingy??? What the heck is that all about anyway. Not gonna lie, we are both a little out of practice and we even forgot to really start AND end the episode... so, we hope you enjoy this completely raw and barely edited, very special episode. As always, feel free to hit us up on twitter (https://twitter.com/bobandkevinshow) and let us know what you think of the episode. Have a great 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!

As usual, please let us know what you want to hear more of, or less of... and be sure to rate us on Apple Podcasts if you can... Thanks!

This was by far our most controversial episode! Bob & Kevin discussed propaganda, brainwashing, cults and more as it relates to when something should be banned from various social outlets and the slippery slope that comes with deciding when someone no longer has the right to spread their message. We also talk about the blurred lines between entertainment and reality and if anyone is really EVER telling the full truth and sharing all the facts. Where the heck are we supposed to get our news these days? Heck is this chart even legit? https://www.facebook.com/vanessa.otero.9619/posts/10155006385626062 - who the hell knows!

We did eventually get to our main topic of product reviews and how trustworthy we think they are with our special guest, Andrew Barta, but it did take us a while! We had tons of fun talking about many other topics including tech industry job interview controversies, social media audience building techniques and more. Oh, and we also had a few audio issues along the way that made for some entertaining space filling conversations from Bob & Kevin. Be sure to check out Andrew's social media properties after listening!

So, it looks like we are trying this #Podcast thing! The Bob & Kevin Show is dropping YouTube as our content platform in favor of doing a good ole fashioned podcast. On our first TRUE podcast episode, we talked about why we are leaving YouTube, how social media networks like FaceBook, YouTube, Twitter and more have monopolies and how there is virtually nothing we can do about it. Don't worry, we throw some shade toward eBay and Amazon as well... heck, we even do some Walmart bashing. We will still talk all things tech and entertainment moving forward... so sit back and enjoy a LISTEN to our new podcast!
