The iPod

5/15/2022
In the fall of 2001, a little-known tech company promised we could carry one thousand songs in our pockets with their kooky little machine they called an iPod. Two decades later, we now all have access to infinite songs at all times, so they discontinued it. This week we reminisce about the iPod and Tom has some very specific memories about working at the Apple Store during iPod-mania. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
