T.R.I.P. Episode 3 - Ender's Game is pornographic?

Recorded 3/16/2012

We smooth out our presentation significantly from episode 1 and have a more conversational show. I have the audio levels dialed in a whole lot better this time.

We have added a voicemail hotline for comments and feedback. Simply call 980-22IDIOT (980-224-3468) and leave us a message. Chances are we'll play your message on our next show and laugh at how poor a job Google Voice did at transcribing it. If you're shy, you can still leave a comment on the blog or email us at

  1. Ref AT&T issue: Dude also admitted to tethering, which AT&T should have listed in their letter would be the reason for contract termination. Unlimited data is for use on the iPhone, not shared with other devices.

    If you bought a car that came with unlimited gas supply, you wouldn't expect to be able to fill up all your vehicles you owned with that gas supply for the one car you bought. The unlimited data for the iPhone is the same way - data to be used by the iPhone, not all the other devices you own as well.

    1. Good point. I wondered how he used so much data. Thanks for the clarification.

  2. James Frey is who you are thinking of. He lied about drug abuse.
