In each episode of Gweek, I invite a guest or two to join me in a discussion about recommended media, apps, and gadgets. My guests this time were Ruben Bolling, author of the weekly comic strip Tom the Dancing Bug, which premieres each week on Boing Boing, and pre-premiers for members of his Inner Hive, and A.J. Jacobs, a writer, a human guinea pig, and the author of four New York Times Bestsellers, including the Year of Living Biblically, for which he followed the hundreds of rules of the Bible as literally as possible, from the 10 commandments to growing a huge beard. We talked about Scouting New York, Mickey Mouse Color Sundays, The Nib, Science Based Medicine, Figure by Propellerhead Software, the Teenage Engineering OP1 Portable Synthesizer, A.J.'s Mental Floss column, and much more!
