Hey thanks everybody who pointed out that Tom Scott has a project called The Technical Difficulties! I had no idea and in no way meant to impose on somebody else’s brand. Unintentionally doing something stupid is like my biggest fear in life [THINK: dog scared of fireworks on New Year’s eve] and we’re figuring out how to deal with it on our end. But most importantly I’ve reached out to Tom and apologized. One solid piece of human being, that guy! The episode will be out Tuesday February 27th at 9am PST, here on my YouTube channel.

HBO asked if I wanted to do a #sponsored #Westworld video and I was like #sure. And did I use it as an excuse to audition to get on the show? #youbet.

I hate pumpkin soup, and I thought it might get better if a robot served it to me. It didn't. And thanks Google for this paid partnership!
