We wrap up our Silicon Veep-ey series just in time, as Bryan is as frustrated with Veep as he is in love with smart fridge-based plot twists. In our final discussion of these two HBO comedies, we take time out to plug heroin (as if it needs the advertising) and buck up podcasting amateur Malcolm Gladwell.
We're late and Shane-less in discussing two episodes of Silicon Valley (The Patent Troll, The Keenan Vortex) and one episode of Veep (Judge), but Bryan and Jon make the best of it. We praise the brief appearance of Ed Chambers and attempt to patch things up with Alabama. It's one thing to alienate anti-vaxxers from our listener-ship. We can't write off a whole state.
We get back in the swing of things with a couple of strong episodes. We talk about the latest episodes of Silicon Valley and Veep, Shane and Bryan jockey for who should be the CTO of the MMC, and Jon wins an award.
