Episode 15: Without Further Undo... Great horror games with bad mechanics are a lot like net neutrality This week, we open with the tale of Mike and his quest to save his Lawn.  Err...

This week, we open with the tale of Senua and her quest to save her lover from the underworld. And how it has one of the stupidest mechanics of all time!

Between serious topics about serious things, Mike rants about keyboard shortcuts and how everyone that doesn’t optimize theirs (Ben) is still waiting at Darwin's bus stop. Classic!

You may have heard about net neutrality. It's a big deal. Or, we think so.  In this segment, we deconstruct what it means, how it works, how it affects you, and how you can sound smart when you're arguing dumb things. (three jalapenos - very spicy)

To close, we think about thinking and what thinking means. Is it a learned skill? Which thoughts are primal?  We'll never know.

Episode 14: Spicy Opinions Vol 1 Coney dogs, airplanes, web services, gold farming, what could go wrong? Folks, this is the best episode of The New Ugly podcast we've made to-date. A lot of people are even saying this is the most impressive podcast episode the world has ever seen.

It's a densely packed fiasco of topics, some of which are spicy, but hopefully not too spicy, but probably spicy, and I don't think there are demerits but there might be some demerits we'll see how it turns out.

* Intro and chat* What's a coney dog?* How to "photoshop" Ben's head onto a model* An introduction to Amazon Web Services* How to make a good password* Gaming culture and Gold farming* SONG BREAK!* Mike enlightens us of his new hashtag* We meander into the depths of the news media and how to fix it* Ben really wanted to talk about the Google news, I guess* Airplanes: What's the deal with them?* Wrap-up
