Stoya and Mitcz start with a discussion of their dating priorities, which leads to them both wondering how anyone else treats the dilemma of an instant electric attraction vs the feeling of safety and security. With this dilemma, they reach out to their friends of a variety of genders and dating situations to ask the question and get a range of res…
 
This week, Mitcz heads to downtown LA to participate… err.. well, watch, the LA County Board of Supervisors hearing on the proposed updated implementation of LA County’s “Measure B” provision, which is another of those pesky anti-porn “you need condoms, you heathens!” laws. We discuss what went down, how it went down, and do some journalist stuff. …
 
This is a special double-episode : Pre and Post Stoya-in-Helsinki edition. Up first : Stoya & Mitcz discuss the recent Alamo Drafthouse Wonder Woman screening controversy, lending itself to a brief discussion of masculinity and Bromance (which is officially a scholarly term, we found out). From there, we discuss the two-part T*ts and Sass articles …
 
Oh, snap! A Big Hack! Yes, yes, of COURSE we talk in-depth about the huge multi-country, multi-target WannaCry / WannaCrypt / WannaCrypt0r hack. In fact, we even discuss motives, methods, history, and resolution of the hack by way of Mitcz over-explaining boring technical details of the code involved. But, like any good sandwich, the meat is in the…
 
Ohh boy is this gonna be a fun episode for you. For the first time ever we have a special guest : the one and only Buck Angel. He was a g’damn delight, and managed to talk more than Mitcz! We discuss so many things in this episode, it’s easier to use a list format than the usual paragraph style : Trans-folk in contact sports Lorelei Lee’s fantastic…
 
We kick things off this week with some exciting Riffopolis Network news, before delving into Amazon’s latest whacky Echo product : a style assistant? Yes, an AI Style Assistant in a webcam. Alex gets very upset about it and rants and raves wildly. We discuss a new software API for artificial voiceover creation – and debating the merits of such a to…
 
We’re back again and finally have a proper name for this thrice-renamed podcast. This time, it’ll stick! This episode is far more representative of our hopes for this podcast. We talk a LOT about sex work, sex workers, sex workers’ rights, feminism (and the controversy about feminism vs sex work), trans-folk rights and America’s dismissal of same, …
 
Hey look! We’re kinda keeping something of a schedule here! Okay, let’s talk about the episode… We start off with tangents about Amazon’s Alexa, then move into a proposed “pinball for rent” business idea while also discussing tech that only the uber-rich have (and can afford). From there, we discuss why Lyft doesn’t understand April Fools’ Day (aka…
 
We’re baaaaack! Hello 2017! This being our first podcast in the new year, we kick things off with our weird tech predictions (spoiler : Mitcz’s predictions are weird and nerdy, Alex’s are lofty). We also discuss other company’s predictions like Uber’s master plan for flying cars, and Amazon’s master plan for automated grocery stores. We explore Twi…
 
We know, we know. It’s been awhile. Over a year. We’ve been busy. And there’s been some changes (and exciting things on the way!). In a first-ever, Stoya & Mitcz actually recorded this in-person, in the same room! We dance around legalities as per what we can officially announce, but those who know how to read into things will know what we mean. We…
 
Since we finally started doing new VT episodes again, we’re doing time-relevant tech updates and speculation again! And almost none of them are Apple-related! We discuss the restaurant industry, Alex’s fascinating theory on McDonalds, Netflix, Snapchat’s weird new hardware device that will usher in the acceptance of a loss of privacy, how shitty Ya…
 
The Apple iPhone 7 / Watch 2 event went down the day before this episode was recorded and we sat down to discuss it. Mitcz makes his attempt at an impassioned case for the removal of the headphone jack, while Alex gets pissy about the price on the AirBuds. We also talk a lot about Alex’s recent switch from a Samsung Android phone to an iPhone 6. Te…
 
Always some cold news to cover in the world of sports and today is no different. We find out that PaPa Joe and Penn State might be EVEN DIRTIER then previously reported (and they were painted pretty bad before). Then we look at the monumental fall of highly touted prospect Laremy Tunsil and whether or not it was the pictures, the family drama, or b…
 
After a long hiatus the Cold World team steps back into the swing of things. The show begins with Alex blowing Teddy’s mind that Blake Griffin’s reason for punching Clippers equipment manager Matias Testi (who is also Blake’s bro) could be a repeat of the LeBron/Delonte West fiasco. From there, it’s a brief look at the Super Bowl but a long dive in…
 
We kick things off this week with two cat-related news items, leading Stoya and Mitcz to discuss their struggles with their hyper cats that know how to — and always keep trying to — play fetch. Stoya sets the record straight about a story that her TrenchcoatX co-owner (Kayden Kross) loves telling people — and Stoya posits a theory about why Kayden …
 
In our inaugural episode, Stoya presents the idea of a “Church of Porn” after a brief discussion of coconut oil as lube while Mitcz tries to get a fuller picture of what the Church of Porn can do for the follower. Our main story this episode is PornHub’s “revenge porn reporting tool”. Stoya has a lot to say on the matter, remains skeptical of their…
 
We’re back after a two week hiatus – sorry! But we’ve got a lot of little tech morsels — some of them vulgar — for you. From the “Uber for Gas” and “Uber for Tailoring” to Google’s proposed new OS for the Internet of Things, to IKEA’s official Hack system, to Nintendo’s curious VP of Sales. We also clear the air about the rumor of Netflix running a…
 
The Cold World Team has one of Riffopolis’ favorite sons, Justin Rupple, in to the Riffopolis studio to go over the arrests of several high level FIFA executives. The debate covers the oddness of the two prosecuting countries: The Swiss (’cause they usually don’t care about anyone doing illegal things) and the United States (’cause they NEVER care …
 
In an interesting turn of events this episode DOESN’T start off with Teddy Tutson heralding his victorious Houston Rockets (over the L.A Clippers in game 7) but rather an impromptu shitting on of the Los Angeles Clippers from Teddy’s (extra frosty) co-host Alex. From there they look at the rest of the NBA playoff picture as well as a brief discussi…
 
Sorry we were late this week. It’s been crazy around here. We start off with a correction, and a couple of quick news items — like the fall of the House of Keurig (okay.. “fall” is a little strong. The weakening?), and some Amazon Echo enhancements. With Google finally testing its self-driving cars on public roads, we re-visit the world of self-dri…
 
Mitcz is pleased that he successfully predicted (with some caveats) two stories that are tackled this week. We talk about Tesla’s new home battery, why it’s worthwhile, and whether it’s useful beyond its intended target. We also discuss self-driving semi trucks, and what the future holds, debate about what laws should be made, and the efficacy of c…
 
The ever hilarious (and apparently hard hitting) Jeff May puts on his winter gear and steps into the Cold World of boxing. We cover everything from Jeff’s experience as a Golden Gloves (losing) boxer, to the time he hit one of the world’s best boxer’s in the face and heard back, “Good one”. From there, we delve into everything involving the Pacquia…
 
We discuss Tesla’s secret-but-not-secret upcoming home battery project, which evolves into discussing their vehicles and vehicles in general. Alex gets an education about what The Singularity actually entails, and we discuss the morality of becoming “one”. After running through some recent tech news, we settle into a discussion about Google’s hope …
 
We start off with a discussion about our now-smarter home. A lot happened in a week, and we now have a Smart Speaker (Amazon Echo), a Smart Thermostat (Nest 2.0), and a Smart Lock (Kwikset Kevo). We talk about the plusses and minuses of each, the actual usefulness of each, and some upcoming features announced for our Kevo smart lock. From there, we…
 
This week, the Cold World team puts away more than just the stats and the figures–they put away the depression! Alex and Teddy delve into their experiences in youth sports and how that transformed into an adult passion for all things athletic. Teddy shares how learning basketball from the point of view of a point guard translated into how he views …
 
Our Amazon Echo arrived earlier than anticipated. After an initial estimate of April 24th, Mitcz got an email on Tuesday that it was on its way and would arrive Thursday. It arrived the following day (today). So, as promised, we unboxed it here on this episode and ran “Alexa” through her paces. We even Periscope’d a good portion of the episode (inc…
 
Quite a few tangents in this episode as we successfully test and broadcast with Periscope, and Mitcz explains why it didn’t work last time. Since his issues with Periscope were related to two-factor authentication, Mitcz rants about his frustration with companies not fully supporting the two-factor authentication they themselves developed (and expl…
 
Exclusive TV contracts, what are they? We all hear the term used in sports these days but how does it really effect them? Well the Cold World team will tell you….. money….. FLOSS WITH US MONEY!!! How much money you ask? Take a listen, pull out your notepad, and pop a Prozac in your mouth, cause the numbers are staggering. From the NCAA Basketball a…
 
Finally moving past “He Who Shall Not Be Named”, we get into a user-submitted suggestion of discussing Meerkat and Periscope and the drama that surrounds it. We even tried to use Periscope live on the air, and came to the conclusion that it’s too buggy to bother with and quite a load of crap. We also discuss the upcoming trend of computers-on-a-sti…
