Casey and Meesh had nothing to talk about, but that couldn’t stop them from recording as they went through a variety of conversation starters and random questions for a true Miscellaneous Thoughts episode.
Casey and Meesh are inspired by a Lifehacker article titled “Free Your Mind By Having Fewer Useless Opinions”, so they talk about useless opinions before transitioning into a discussion about how empathy has changed throughout society over the years. The deeper topics are sandwiched in between the lighter topics of treadmill talk and positive shout-outs!
Rich Miller (@atrichmiller) and Meesh cover some of the early trending topics for the Penguins, including the play of Antti Niemi, the lack of playing time for Ryan Reaves, and what they would give up for Matt Duchene.
Casey and Meesh start by discussing why people quote-tweet so much on twitter, then continue into the topics of charities, social attention for non-authority figures, and breaking up your echo chamber on social media.
