Technology is wonderful. Except, ya know, sometimes. A new episode of 11 Points Countdown discussing what it has ruined.

I’ve got another new episode of the 11 Points Countdown this week, talking about the stuff that’s been ruined by technology. I can’t believe I forgot to include the library card catalog as one of the options.

This week I’m joined for the third time by Colin Marshall (who was previously called Niles Crane on his past appearances).
