Get it done before the clap

Failing to read the country's mood, we met up once again to talk about fitness, running and tech. Nick has found a new dead format to worry about, Jon is putting it all on the plate, and we offer up a hot take on Zoom calls. Remember, if you don't use lockdown to learn a language, write that novel or work on your side hustle you're probably just trying to keep going as best as you can in pretty testing circumstances and in all honestly that's as worth clapping as anything else going on right now. You're doing great and we're proud of you. This week's links: * Nick bought a [Kano](https://kano.me/uk/store/products/computer-kit). It's probably worth looking for on ebay as the novelty wears of fast. * Tbh the Kano is a Raspbery Pi with bells on, so maybe just get one of those and get the same benefit of a one hour diversion for the kids for a few quid... Nick could use [this kit to make a speaker for his NFC cards](https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/pirate-radio-pi-zero-w-project-kit). What a talking point that would be. * He also got a [Yoto speaker](https://www.yotoplay.com/) which he swears is worth it. * Jon isn't on Twitter except for when he does [this](https://twitter.com/jonhickman/status/1254428473805987840). ...

Time marches on. Jon went off book and did an intro to explain the delay on this episode and try to contextualise it, but history keeps happening and it's now the day after the "mini-budget" and things seem to have gotten even worse.¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Here's a chat we had before the heat wave when we innocently thought a 2 grand utility bill was a lot of money.The bed in the intro is I Walk With Ghosts by Scott Buckley | www.scottbuckley.com.au from https://www.chosic.com/free-music/all/ which is on a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International license (CC BY 4.0) | https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/ The Grange Hill theme was grabbed from this: https://archive.org/details/tvtunes_30923 If you need a quick way to give to Shelter go here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/runnerpod (you can still get a sticker, just tweet @jonhickman)Find your union: https://www.tuc.org.uk/joinunion Find or donate to food banks: https://www.trusselltrust.org/ Peace! ...
