Problematically Shelled Soy

Zak and Liz talk about the best dairy-free cream cheese that Liz has had the pleasure of spreading onto a bagel.

Zak calls out the cowards at Malk Organics LLC for not standing up to the dairy lobby… oh, and their new oat milk isn’t that good.

Zak describes the Log4Shell exploit and all of the innocuous decisions that lead up to its presence in a large amount of software written in Java.
