43:59 – Join Ruben in a soulful, bronchital state; a word that almost certainly doesn’t exist. Topics include Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs, secret apartment doors, Apple keyboards really are that bad, stabbing myself in the eye with a poster, Australia’s obsessive coffee culture, Arashiyama in Kyoto, and accidental beverages. Break song by the delightful Good Mythical Morning gents who trained a predictive text bot.

01:03:32 – In the first of what I hope to be many episodes in the Rubenerd Rewind series, we take a journey back thirteen years to my university dorm to hear Kevin Tan’s show! He heard me doing Rubenerd Shows when we were both studying in Adelaide, and thought he’d give it a try. Each of his six episodes are preserved and presented here in one easy-to-listen programme. Shows recorded by Kevin Tan in 2005-06, introduction recorded by Ruben Schade in 2018, and an Adelaide Channel 7 news clip from 2006.
