STUFF WE TALK ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE
(total duration -- 35:25)
The book "Stumbling on Happiness," and what the search for happiness and lvl uppage means for game designers (previous BB post here).
Flying machines that can't fly, made by eccentric people. They make for good video.
Bjork and those wild sound editing gizmos on the Volta tour (previous BB post here).
The difference between someone who tells you they predict the future, and someone who forecasts the future. Hint: One is always lying. The other, if they're any good, is not.
We recorded this podcast as a Skype conference call, and captured it with AudioHijack. The audio was later edited in Apple's Garage Band, after some help from Levelator.
