#242: There is no Wrong Way to Cook Pigweed!

February 13th, 2020 · 94 minutes

Flo and Andy fiddle with Android TV boxes while the Essential Phone burns. Then they talk about Samsung Unpacked, and marvel in hopeful disbelief that new Galaxy Z Flip could be the first folding phone that can't be reviewed with an economical “LOL NO.” A Googler is fired for her activism, and speaks freely of the environment for trans people at the company. Finally, although it's too soon to get excited about the new OS Google's developing, the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens is plenty excited about the weed it's been named after. Bonus: the word “Poopie” is uttered without apology.
