This week's episode is full of the type of hard-hitting commentary you've come to expect from your two intrepid hosts, as they revisit some of the ideas from Adam Alter's Irresistible, talk about their own experiences with trying to measure and meter their media consumption, and as they chat about an older book, Neil Postman's Seminal Amusing Ourselves To Death: Public Discourse in the Age of show Business, which is maybe a little too prescient in the ways in which it predicts internet culture as TV culture turned to 11.

Talking points include: behavior vs. substance addiction, Mark Zuckerberg running for president, Futurama as fact.
