Journalistically Expedient Pockets

Zak and Liz talk about Zak’s experience with setting up Fastmail. Zak demands features from the developers of an app that he does not pay for then discovers that the feature he wants is already included.

Zak breaks his silence regarding his history with cargo shorts. Listener discretion advised. He also tells us how he manages his left glove in today’s modern society.

Liz wants to journal in every sense of the word. Her new yearly theme focuses on having a conversation with herself through time which isn’t as self-aggrandizing as it may seem.

Spitefully Personal Mail

Zak and Liz talk about Liz having some very healthy and normal feelings about a guy that makes Youtube videos about the block game and Zak rudely pathologizes her with the bible. She continues to double down until it’s not funny anymore.

Liz is trying to get one step closer to living her Tony Stark fantasy life by getting Zak to come up with more things that could be nails for her Jarvis-shaped hammer.

Zak is very upset that Google is reading his emails and making him pay for it. Liz tells us how email actually works and why we should all give up and let Google eat our data. Zak ignores this advice and is considering Fastmail.
