It’s been a long couple of months but Alberto & Paul have come out of hiding to talk, yes again, about life in the pandemic. In this episode, Alberto and Paul talk about how Apple’s Work From Home ad really nails the current feelings of many remote workers. 

We also discussed how we’re coping with at times isolation, being a frontline worker, and urging everyone to wear a damned mask! 

We also talk a little about the new Ford Bronco and friend of the pod, Eric Ravenscraft’s, superb Animorphs video essay (link below). 

Covered in this episode:

Welcome to the latest installment of The Noisecast. In this episode, Alberto and Paul deal with what we’re all dealing with – life in the time of COVID-19. We talk some tech, like various tech companies trying to fight disinformation online and the importance of social distancing. But more importantly, we’re just trying to make sense of the uncertainty and being an ear for one another.

Also, Alberto loves video games but isn’t too good at them. We’re looking for suggestions on how we can all come together and enjoy some time together as we all stay tf home. Send us your tips and suggestions: noisecast (at) thenoisecast (dot) com

Originally recorded in mid-September, this episode was originally a recap of Apple’s iPhone Event but quickly turned to streaming services. It’s like cable! (But, you know, worse.) So while Paul and Alberto gripe about having to subscribe to ten different services to watch a handful of shows, they did manage to talk about all things iPhone and Apple Watch, Google Pixel 4, and the new Fujifilm X-Pro 3.
