S1E12 – Photography… ain’t he unglamo-rays?

This episode contains some reminiscing about 1970s sci-fi TV when the Backers experienced prepubescent forces beyond all comprehension. They regather themselves to the present to talk about the torture of Kickstarter exclusives. Brian makes a decisive click of the mouse to back some bespoke cocktail glassware. There’s talk about a light bulb that went to space and back, and a VR project that has been aggravating its backers for almost half a decade. Finally, the Backers find themselves scanning through the pictorial Photography campaigns. Therein, they discover a couple projects that have unique approaches to breathing life into images that have been buried in national archives… and along the way they learn that maybe NASA has no idea how people drink.
