In this episode Nicolas gives some sage words of wisdom to protesters regarding making sure efforts are sustainable. Nicolas is also seeking to give a platform to Black Community Organizers or allies to answer the question via podcast episode: What is the message you most want to get out there right now? Nicolas also talks about their financial choices for the month of June and their feelings of guilt over the evil organizations they financially contribute to.

When You Talk About Destruction

Nicolas reacts to the actions of those fighting for justice in Minneapolis. Nicolas comes to the conclusion that with the pandemic, people of color being murdered by police across the country and the mainstream political parties being corrupt and useless, it is time to move past solely non-violent tactics.



Not The Tech Guy I Once Was

In this episode Nicolas traces their tech history over the past 30 years or so (has it really been that long?). Nicolas then goes on to talk about the fact that they are much more of a tech user than a tech geek these days despite their background. This leads Nicolas to wonder, is it even worth it to build a new computer? Nicolas touches on their struggle for meaningful work in light of the pandemic and the way the world is currently going. Finely, Nicolas talks about their laptop troubles which have now piled on to the ongoing desktop drama and the struggle to back up to the cloud.
