Streaming news, Space X testing, Biological robots, and face recognition

This week we dedicate this show to the memory of our close friend Stu.  He was a great man and a truly exceptional nerd. We ask that if you please consider donating to his wife and three kids that he unfortunately left far too early.  


In entertainment news this week we discuss news surrounding many of the biggest streaming services.  Netflix continues to spend big money on content, more details have emerged concerning the Peacock service. Amazon releases the cast of the Lord of the Rings show, and Disney+ has another setback.  In tech news we cover the latest in space talk. Space X tested a new safety feature by exploding one of their rockets, Elon plans to put 1 million people on Mars, and the Space Force unveils their new uniforms.
