It has been dubbed our most random episode yet. We first head to Berlin for IFA 2018 and peek into the not-too-distant future where bezels have left the human race and it’s all screen, all of the time. Then it’s off to Seattle where a gaggle of geese have run amok and taken over an indie gaming convention at PAX West. Finally, your grandkids have abandoned you but never you mind, just get one on-demand from the Papa app. What a time to be alive!
As always, we cover all angles using clips from different sources so you get everything you need to know, right here on The Lazy Couch Podcast.
