This week’s episode brought to you by Slice on Broadway, Alex Kahrs Design & Media, and Sparkledragon’s Magical Emporium!

We return after a week hiatus as Kenny Chen joins us for the main show. Kenny is joined by our usual cast of characters, Sorg, Chilla, and Dudders, as we talk about this week’s topics including:

Katie is sharing an Awesome Thing of the Week that she literally found in the studio this evening. Doorways to Horror – the VCR game.
Chilla’s Awesome Thing of the Week has Sorg downloading a new app for Box Lunch.
Kenny’s Awesome Thing of the Week is NOT Post-Quantum Cryptography.
Kenny’s Awesome Thing of the Week is AI for Good which he attended a week or so ago.
Sorg’s Awesome Thing of the Week has to do with Missy’s iPhone upgrade – due to circumstances.
Because Missy had to replace her iPhone, Sorg finally said goodbye to his Pebble and hello to a new Apple Watch.
Thanks to The Broadcast for turning us on to teaming up with Public Source on an Open Data project.
Our friend Brandon (who will be participating in the Special Olympics) shared some news about an Xbox partnership.
Our good friend and Patreon supporter Mat Weller is getting closer to cut the cord.
Ever wanted to become a house-flipper without actually having to deal with renovation work? There’s a videogame for that!
DishTV has a new option for over-the-air channels.
HoloLens is helping those with visual impairments with sound.
