In Episode 149 of the Trampled Underfoot Podcast: Has the internet made us smarter? With so much information literally at our fingertips, have we really become any smarter than we were when we relied on libraries and books for our information? Information is easier to find than it has ever been. Is that information correct, though? How do we check it? Do we even care?

Eloy Escagedo and Mark Lindsay explore the topic with lots of references to Wikipedia, books, magazines, and even a video taken in France in 1899. In that video, modern Artificial Intelligence technology was used to colorize it, then bring it up to 60 fps. The video itself is stunning, but does it give us a look into the daily lives of people of the time, or does it give us a look at how they hoped viewers would see them?

Lots of fun conversations in this episode, so grab your favorite beverage, sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Bob Saget's Here For You

BOB SAGET’S HERE FOR YOU is a podcast that is like no other— For one, this podcast has guests who are friends of Bob’s, or just really interesting people who many of you know and love. Secondly, this podcast is unique because it goes inside Bob Saget’s mind, and then quickly filters out through his mouth. Bob has a way of calming people he has conversations with as well as being entertaining and often informative. Bob talks with his guests with genuine empathy and humor, while reaching his unusually diverse audience that he talks to as a friend, Bob is the dad with great advice, the irreverent funny guy who’s always there when you need a laugh, and the free-associative Bob who goes off on crazy tangents then returns to the subject at hand, as serious or as comedic as it may be, to wrap up each episode in a way only Bob can do. Because he really does believe, “He’s here for you."
