Episode 73: David’s Workout Routine, an Audience of One and Is Social Media Ruining Us?

Is social media ripping apart society? According to former Facebook exec Chamath Palihapitiya, it is. The guys look deeper at the subject of social media and the negative and positive affects it's having on our culture. While all of that might sound like a serious discussion, there is plenty of rants and banter that you will not want to miss, including another random story by David that involves him getting confused for a woman… again.

It’s part of being human, as if we’re born with something missing, something beyond us and beyond this world. Sometimes this heartfelt need is expressed in honest art, when an artist is bold enough to speak out.
