  1. Hi,

    So happy to hear you two again, Pop Tech Jam is always a joy and high point of the week for me.

    Enjoyed the latest show, here are a couple of thoughts:

    1. I think that, perhaps, Pedro and I are the only ones who enjoyed Solo. We should watch it together sometime.

    2. Leo Laporte is alive and well over on TWIT, still cranking out podcasts. He originally called them netcasts, but that changed a while ago.

    3. Pedro was wondering why people stay on Facebook. For me, it is the only way to share my photography with my friends and communities all over the world. I also share on Instagram, with more random results, and on Twitter where I rarely get any response. I would love to find a new platform where I can reach all these people, but haven’t found it yet…BTW, I do have my own website, but it is hard to direct traffic to it…

  2. Hi, Ken! So great to hear from you! And thanks for the update on the mighty TWiT empire.

    As for “Solo,” I found it watchable (shower scene caught me by surprise, I’ll admit) and a decent summer movie. However, “Rogue One” is still firmly lodged at the top of my Top Ten List of Star Wars Productions.
