Episode 315 :: Age & Beauty: Life-Extension Drugs and Staying Young at Heart

Engineered obsolescence: that's what the human body is. It kicks alotta ass and then gets slower, brittler, and much harder to drive. Surely us nerds of the 21st century must've found some way to brain ourselves out of this? Well... turns out we have! 

Join Cap, boR, Jon, and Tony as we test out the latest life-extension drugs, brainstorm the sci-fi benefits of custom-engineered organoids, and stay young at heart with rousing discussions on the new Spider-Man game, the animated series The Dragon Prince, and get excited about surprise television adaptations of Don't Hug Me I'm Scared and Alan Wake, as well as introduce Talking Heads frontman David Byrne to Rule 34?! Yeah - that's actually a thing that happens - hear a short clip from Cap's forthcoming interview with the legendary musician about his film True Stories, where we drop some carnal Internet knowledge.
