Lauren Goode: Of course.
Brenda Stolyar: Indeed.
Michael Calore: Lauren.
Lauren Goode: Mike.
Michael Calore: Lauren, in which are you? I are unable to see your eyes. I appear at your face and I just see form of a bluish purple blob where your eyes are. Are you in there?
Lauren Goode: Hold on. Enable me twist my digital crown on my Apple Vision Professional headset.
Michael Calore: Oh, I can see your eyes now, but you still really feel variety of like distant. You’re not genuinely having to pay consideration.
Lauren Goode: That is the detail with blended fact. You might be there, but you are not. But you are right here, but you happen to be not.
Michael Calore: Are you existing more than enough to do a podcast?

Michael Calore: It can be amount 6 zero zero.
Brenda Stolyar: Congrats you guys.
Michael Calore: Thanks.
Lauren Goode: I question what that number means in numerology. We really should look it up.
Brenda Stolyar: Ooh.
Lauren Goode: Might be a specific selection.
Brenda Stolyar: Seem it up for the stop of the exhibit.

Lauren Goode: We should most likely notify men and women what we have been at first preparing for our 600th episode.
Michael Calore: We were heading to float in a pool.
Lauren Goode: We were being. We experienced an extremely random strategy that we ended up just going to go uncover a pool someplace, and all of us were being likely to sit there and tread water with our small Zoom useful recorders up to our faces and document a podcast. And our producer was basically on board with this.
Michael Calore: Absolutely sure.
Lauren Goode: Boone, the most excellent producer in the world. Most producers would be like, “This appears like a nightmare from an audio standpoint. You happen to be bringing electronics into the pool.” We ended up like, “No, we are heading to do this.” We had a pool in brain, and we have been heading to invite Mat Honan to occur on the show.
Michael Calore: Yeah, just ghosts of Gadget Lab previous, I feel.
Lauren Goode: Yeah. We had this full program, and then Apple took place.
Michael Calore: And then Apple transpired.
