Isaac and Charles discuss a New York Times article contending that planned obsolescence (the by-design eventual failure of a gadget) is not a real thing. Both disagree and cite their own phone experiences as proof. This leads to an argument over whether news orgs should insert fact-checking parentheticals into their headlines, as well as how Trump's tweets are bad for the country, and if George Soros is too-often unfairly maligned as a dark controller of the left rather than just a liberal version of the Koch brothers. This episode is best listened to on an iPhone that continually crashes.
