  1. Oh, That's Why They Exploded!

    Episode #155 was published on Monday January 23rd, 2017.

    On this Don't Panic we cover a range of topics including Colby's sense of fashion, the dangers of Touch Bar, why those batteries exploded and how Qualcomm makes all that money. Then we go on our favorite rant of all time: the magic of Japanese fancy toilets and the future of smart toilet technology. Remember, Colby's not a robot, sometimes he uses a different amount of toilet paper...

    And now we've set a record for number of times saying "toliet" in an episode description.

  6. Panic! At the News Feed

    Episode #149 was published on Monday November 14th, 2016.

    On this episode, we focus on a single story: Facebook's relationship with the real (and not so real) news. Do they have a responsibility to tell users the difference between real news and fake news? Who decides what is real and what is fake? How can these sites make a filter that actually works? Join us as we make some progress on this difficult problem.
