Just know that, after it's revealed that his podcast was just an elaborate way to get all your Internet-connected devices trapped in a massive botnet dedicated to forming a strand-based compute cluster for optimizing egg recipes while listening to mp3s of Bauhaus vinyl records, we will welcome you back with open arms.
