Loved hearing Riley talk about Pokémon Go. Omg the summer Pikachu was adorable. I'm glad I was able to catch one.

At work we started a "walking club" where we self track our walks of 15 minutes and longer. It's a perfect excuse for me to get some more Pokémon. Since I work in state government my office is close to many historical markers which are usually where Pokéstops are located. It's a great way to pass the time on my break and have fun.

I know Let's Go! it's getting some flack for being a "watered down" Pokémon game but I'll definitely still get it and play the hell out of it.

Oh man I need to check out that Citations Needed podcast. The myth of the liberal media is spot on, especially when it comes to journalism. Really enjoying the entirety of this show. I really enjoy Yussef as a guest and the two of you had a nice rapport with him.

Thanks, glad you liked it! Yussef's great, I also really liked his insights on the movie Arrival when we had him on that episode.

It's really good, I need to get back into it. It seems like I've been flooded with other podcasts lately.
