    Episode 18: There is a Fire in Bedroom Two

    Today, after a long talk about video games and, er, internet coming-of-age stories, Will and Andy talk about “smart home” devices — wi-fi enabled lightbulbs, digital assistant dinguses, sentient refrigerators and fancy speakers. Andy confesses his home is completely dumb, but after the techno-apocalypse, he won’t be locked out of his home and car like Will. Warning: Andy and Will forget and say (literally) triggering words that may summon your always-listening dingus to life. Proceed with that knowledge.
