Episode 5: Something Old, Something New, Something Starchy

Robert went to the Vintage Computer Festival recently and is super excited to talk about it. For once, we manage to stay on topic for more than five minutes, before gears inevitably shift and turn to just general video game nerdery — particularly with regards to consoles and sound chips. (The Genesis is screechy; the Super Nintendo sounds like it’s playing in an adjacent room.)

We do a quick cursory appraisal of the new Hollywood adaptation of Ghost in the Shell movie, which features a Danish actor, and try to be sensitive to the controversy surrounding the casting choices while simultaneously not giving in to outrage. Thankfully, we get off that topic pretty quickly and start talking about the anime sequel, Innocence, and the Playstation 1 game.

As always, we inevitably start getting into the cultural differences between Cuban and Danish cuisine — the primary difference being that Cubans actually have cuisine — and where you must go to get good Cuban food in Miami.

Hint: this place!
