Z is for Zip (and other compression tech)

It’s not how big it is … er yeah. So rounding out the alphabet and we’re talking Zip files and other compression algos in this month’s rather technical tech segment.

Including a brief history, an almost certainly incorrect break down of how compression works and a lot of trolls (of the patent variety) it’s a nice enough way to end the season. And let’s face it, it’s the only tech thing beginning with Z of any note.

Z is for Zodiac

Late 1960’s San Francisco and there’s a serial killer on the loose! That’s right, we’ve decided to end on a rather dark note as we slide into the obsession filled, decade spanning epic that is, David Fincher’s Zodiac.

Of course it’s based on a true story but this doesn’t stop Mike & Rob bringing their own version of inanity and slight degrees of fanboism to this sprawling review of all 157 minutes of this modern classic.

Y is for social networks of YesterYear

Tenuous? Yes but this was easily the best of a bad bunch. And if you have ever wondered what happened to the guy who founded MySpace, wether Bebo is still a thing or why it is that Facebook is just so damn popular then this is the episode for you.

From the early 90s through to the upcoming wave of anti-social networks Rob and Mike skip merrily through a land of tribalism, hate speech, fake news and cat gifs … so, you know, the internet.

X is for … Crypto Currency

Tis the season to be jolly. Jolly confused about Crypto Currency that is. In this month’s tech segment, recorded live in front of an actual audience at Pizza Projekt in Jersey, Rob attempts to explain the complexities of Bitcoin et al to a surprisingly responsive Mike! From the early days through to the peak at the end of 2017 and with plenty of hash gags, it’s a Christmas Crypto Miracle!

X is for … Die Hard!

X stands for anything right? Well in this month’s Xmas episode, the WDAWKT team decided to take a look at the perennial classic Die Hard.

Recorded live in front of an actual audience at Pizza Projekt in Jersey, Mike & Rob review John Mclane’s first outing, determine whether it’s a Christmas film or not, have one star reviews read out by real guests and even find time for a little game of guess the sound track!
