595 - Shop Talk with Sean Mort

Some weeks just have to start out with talking a little shop with your friends. Mark and Sean get things started by catching up on everything going on across the globe. As our real life Episode Nine reveals the plot twist no one wants to happen our International Duo is left reeling in the wake of political blunders, decent movies, and bad updates. The Adventures In Design app is now in the works and Mark navigates through the Wild West of app design and meets a new character in the AID Universe. HomePods, Alexas, and Dwaynes are littering the market as smart home hubs and we get a whole new perspective from the boys on convenience, technology, and the fine line between futility and utility. Lastly, several unfortunate world events take their place in the cannon of things we wish could be undone so Mark and Sean offer up their take on the expanding impact of them.
