In the last ten years, one of the worst parts of our society has been the idea of “hustle culture” – a never-ending grind where people’s value comes from creating profit. But what happens when you hit a wall? What happens when you can no longer make your work-life fit within your real life?
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).

- Apple Just Made the Definitive Ad About Working From Home, and It’s Hilarious – David Griner | AdWeek
- Animorphs: The Grey Morality of 90s YA’s Most Tragic Characters – Eric Ravenscraft

As most of us are about a month deep into social distancings (whether by choice or mandate), but this episode’s guest – Olympus Trailblazer, Jamie MacDonald – shares some of his creative process and how he’s staying sharp as we’re all staying home.
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
Paul and Alberto are back on the mic and they’ve come to a realization – launching a new product is tough. In this episode, they discuss day-one issues with the Google Stadia and Disney Plus. From issues with connectivity, lack of options, and in Disney’s case – compromised user data it appeared everyone experienced a failure to launch.
This episode is a little late because life happens, but Paul and Alberto got a chance to talk about John Wick 3 and Paul said farewell to Game of Thrones. Alberto would rather just catch up in meme form, as all adults should.
