Community Guy Snapcast on Kryptonite

We we're actually "on" kryptonite, but we talked about it during the podcast. Jake McKee, Chris Carfi and me talked about the recent story about Kryptonite- bike locks that can be picked with a bic pen.

More than that, we focused on how the company handled the affair and Jake's recent email interview with the Kryptonite PR person. As always, it was a good time. Enjoy.

Update: I uploaded a picture of yours truly during the snapcast and give you a tour of the scene with flickr notes on the photo. Random reality.
