In this week's nerd news Steve and Ken cover the privacy concerns surrounding the viral app FaceApp. Belle Delphine gets banned from Instagram and 4.5 million followers are wondering why. We have a discussion around meditation and why both Steve and Ken are believers in the benefits of meditation, the answer is science. Elon Musk held a talk on his company Neuralink and we share our thoughts on the exciting but terrifying progression in technology. Then the big talk is around the San Diego Comic Con recap. There are many movie trailers released, new rumors and speculation. We hope you enjoy.
