An ongoing conversation between Lam Nguyen & Chad Hall that veers from highbrow pretension to lowbrow weirdness, and manages to hit every commonplace mailbox in-between while exploring the bizarre possibilities of the world and their own personal obsessions. Our goal isn't to teach or even to be right, our goal is to talk, ponder and spark new thoughts.
