LTG on Chai FM 101.9Mhz : LTG Episode 126

The Stuff


In Episode 126

In our first official live show on Chai FM we cover self healing chips, a world without the Internet, how NASA modded an Android phone for use in space, Transistor (a new game from the makers of Bastion) and a gel that stops bleeding instantly. We also argue about whether Google is stealing web traffic away from websites and you get to meet "The Mixer" - on the show, in person, for the first time! We also say goodbye to Gerrit who is abandoning us for the distant shores of Cape Town. We play you out to some awesome tunes from the original Bastion soundtrack. Thanks for watching!
