We take a walk down memory lane and find we're not in the town we thought we were in. Brenton details the story of Erwin Kreuz, a German tourist who thought he landed in San Francisco but was actually in Maine. Then Emily discusses the history of Lou Ottens and his pioneering work on the cassette. We also segue into discussion of the famous seal Andre (we swear it's related to Erwin's story).
