Welcome to the very first episode of the new Working for the Mandroid podcast, where Fernando and I discuss all the things we’re watching, reading, consuming, and obsessing over. In this very first episode, we try to figure out what we’re doing, I mispronounce several words, and Fernando’s Mac keeps dinging.
