The Swirl Podcast, Episode 67: Forts and the Thrusts of Hugh Jassol

December 11, 2017

Are algorithms ruining your chances at true happiness? Plus, a fitbit for your junk, the Netflix documentary flavor of the week, and we debate if hating kids makes you a real grinch. All that, plus the usual nonsense.
