Welcome

Welcome to “We’re Drunk and We Know Things”. Join Mike, a movie expert & tech user, and Rob, a tech expert & movie watcher, as they attempt to educate each other in a classic movie, and a technology concept each month.

Recorded in a bar, with ale, silliness ensues!

Episodes

R is for Radio

Don’t know your WiFi from your WiMax? Bluetooth leave you feeling disconnected? It’s ok, cos this month Rob tries very hard to explain modern data radio to Mike, and very nearly succeeds!

From Marconi through to modern day, come along for a whirlwind tour of frequencies, bands, cells and packets as we do our best to explain the “giant cloud of data in the air” … yeah.

R is for Robocop

The year is 2043, Detroit is a sh*t hole (nothing changes) and MCP are looking for “volunteers” for their new cyborg program, code name RoboCop!

It’s a classic, it’s Verhoeven, it’s violent, grim and above all it’s the 80s. Mike & Rob take an armoured car through Old Detroit and explore everything the franchise has to offer. You have to listen to this episode. After all, dead or alive, you’re coming with us!

Q is for Quantum Computing

So it turns out that Quantum Physics is a pretty damn complex & confusing topic. Which may explain why, in this month’s tech episode, we spend a lot of time talking about anything but the given topic – Quantum computing.

If you’re happy that we probably get most of this completely wrong then tune in for particle porn positions, 30’s physicists who got some, and a pretty filthy spin on a classic computer science problem – i.e. what if that traveling salesman was selling d*ck pics?
