Solo List Assault – Unpopular Opinions #20

Unpopular Opinions #20

Unpopular Opinions is back, and so is Ryan. This week, he brought along his favorite co host... himself.

In what's easily the weirdest UO episode ever, Ryan appears completely solo and spends more time yelling than ever before. Apparently, the person that makes him most upset is himself.

In what could potentially be a new format for the show, Ryan engages in List Assault. This time it's about video games. Or to be exact, it's …

Size Matters: A Tale of Two Transaction Types – Unpopular Opinions #19

Unpopular Opinions #19

This is episode 19 of Unpopular Opinions with Ryan Tofil. It matters. Kinda.

It's Unlopupar Onipions once again, hosted by Ryan Tofil. He's joined this week by a mostly incoherent Bryan …

Unstable Unicorns & Unstabler People – Unpopular Opinions #18

Unpopular Opinions #18

This is episode 18 of Unpopular Opinions with Ryan Tofil. It's the least stable podcast you've EVER heard.

Dan drank a six pack of Pepsi Max. The next thing he knew, he was in the emergency room getting hit with the paddles and being read his last rights. (Okay, that's not 100% true, but if Donald Trump doesn't have to worry about what's true, why should we?)

But there really is some truth to that …

Ry & Bry Literally Saw the Future – Unpopular Opinions #17

Unpopular Opinions #17

This is episode 17 of Unpopular Opinions with Ryan Tofil. It was voted the #1 Ryan Tofil-hosted podcast on the planet. But of course, Ryan would get nowhere without Bryan.

These two are darned near certain that they hit a hole in the space-time continuum. And no, that's not a joke. They'll tell you how they seemingly saw into the future, watching a live program on television before it actually happened. Yeah, they can't figure …

What is Bitcoin Gaming? What Are the Best Games?

Bitcoin gaming

Gamification is big news across the digital marketing sector right now. It's the concept of turning some otherwise mundane task, such as sitting through a safety briefing, into a game. The theory is that we will be more engaged, pay better attention and do the task more willingly and effectively.

The notion of Bitcoin games turns the gamification model on its head. Instead of starting with an important task and making a game of it, …

Facebook Versus Democracy – Unpopular Opinions #16

Unpopular Opinions #16

This is episode 16 of Unpopular Opinions with Ryan Tofil. It's rock hard fo' sho'.

Is Facebook playing fair? Absolutely not. Is that a problem? Absolutely. And what should be done? Nothing, according to Bradley Evans.

Bradley's seen both ends of the spectrum. He lived most of his life in liberal Seattle then spent four years at the most conservative, most Christian college there is. Which way will he lean this time?

This is Facebook …
