Didactic SynCast #82: Trading Through The Puke

This episode has a gross title, but it’s a real quote from Dark Pools, the book I’m reading right now about high-frequency trading. Also this episode: stabbing people with letter openers, psychotic robots that follow you into the bathroom, killer super weeds, and cinder blocks to the face! Enjoy.

Didactic SynCast #73: Hooters and the Pendulum

This blog is not going to become just a dumping ground for the podcast, I promise! I just haven’t had much time to post stuff here. Start of school be crazy, yo. (In case you’re not subscribed, I update the SynaStream daily, usually more than once a day. So check that.)

Anyway, this week’s show is all about Hooters (the restaurant), a pendulum named Elizabeth Warren, union thugs in Chicago, morons making movies as well as morons murdering because of movies, and robots making noodles. Enjoy!
