    025 - I Promise Not To Eat Your Face

    Twenty-five. We've made 25 of these dang things. Thanks for listening, y'all.

    This week, Niki and Jules talk about eating the rich, avocado festivals, coworking spaces, and iPhone jailbreaking. Las Vegas isn't even mentioned once this episode! So much personal growth has happened over the last few episodes.

    024 - You Don't Trust Twitter?

    On this (slightly late, sorry) episode of Tangential, Jules and Niki chat about the homes of America's most wealthy residents, tire recycling and the third High School Musical movie. Somehow they manage to mention Las Vegas again, which is funny considering how much they dislike it. This one's short, so if you average this week and last week's episodes out, it's like they were both normal length. You're welcome.

    023 - The Internet as Spectacle

    On the 23rd installment of Tangential, Niki and Jules cascade into tech and philosophy. Listen to Niki break down how you can track the exact whereabouts of America’s sweetheart, LeBron James, when he’s in the sky and roll your eyes as Jules reminisces about her studies in London. Bear with them as they tackle the idea of modernity and feel free to question whether either of them is college educated.

Well they’re doing it anyway.

    020 - GarageBand Sucks

    Jules' audio for the last ~8 minutes of the episode died in a terrible passion so the end of this one's all over the place. We talk about movies and being tired because of school and travel. College is hard, y'all. If anyone wants to let Jules and I into their grad programs please email us.

    017 - Put the Olympics in Wakanda

    Just like a white winged dove, we’ve made it to episode seventeen.

    016 - Fellow of the Pod

    On this episode of Tangential, Niki and Jules decide to go back to the popcorning method and bounce some delightful kernels around. Such unsalted, zero-trans fat carbs include job security in Drumpf's America, horror as a genre, and résumé building. Niki throws us all for a loop by starting a movie corner of his own and Jules' hits him with some trivia. All this and a little less on the sixteenth episode of Tangential.
