    Ed as a person who lived in Argentina for most of their time in high school I hope you enjoy your time there. I envy that y'all will have access to the best beef in the world. Started watching/listening to 4PP when I lived there over 10 years ago. To everyone else, keep up the great work.

    To answer Chris Davis: Yes, the Pillows are present in both seasons and are as enjoyable as ever. I especially like the song 'Thank You My Twilight.'

    To answer Brad: My favorite food is tacos. The more meat, the better!

    To answer Nick: Not really wowed by feet myself, but Cara Delevingne or Adam Lambert might have some good stompers.

    And Nick, if you want to get anything out of subjecting yourself to The Meg, maybe give How Did This Get Made? a listen. It's a great podcast about weird and/or bad movies with some occasional trivia about them thrown in, hosted by Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael and Jason Mantzoukas. Older episodes are behind a paywall, but the podcast is still going strong just like you guys. Here's the link: https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/earwolf/how-did-this-get-made

    Much love!

    In regard to last weeks, "favorite joke name" discussion, every iteration of The Sims that I have played, I have created a clown Sim named Tess Tickles. It was funny to me at 8 years old, and it is still funny to me at 28.. But my go to name for any female character I create in an RPG has always been Tara Nupsomass.

    Side note : those of you who haven't, need to finish Outer Wilds

    - Love Tobias

    Chris, I work as QA for video games and I will tell you that I have to unpack, carry to my cramped desk, route cables behind monitors, and pray to Korean Jesus I can find the goddamn ports in the back of the PS4-

    -every single damn day.

    The slit design doesn't help USB ergonomics either, where any USB protective shell thicker than about half a centimeter is not going in. Thus, I have route to the back USB port, which is, again, a pain to locate.

    The PS4 pro's slits are actually slightly larger, so I can wedge shit in there barely.

    However, I have by now solved the rear issue by not giving a damn and basically lifting the entire PS4 up like a manhole cover and standing it up on the sharp nose while I plug my shit in easily from above.

    I think consoles from now on should just have every port and also twelve USB ports directly on the top of the console. Then you can sell proprietary L-joint HDMI and power cables to prevent kinked cables.

    I'm happy to hear that you guys hit the milestone for Project M, it's well deserved and I'm looking forward to hearing more about it. Also, glad to hear that you got F.E.A.R. finally working for you Nick. I'll have to go back and watch the live streams I missed. That game is a lot of fun, despite not being quite as spooked by it as I was hoping to be, it was still fun from beginning to end.
