Lifehacker Australia’s Static Podcast: Episode 5

Episode 5: Hoverboards, iconic weapons in video games, how listening to Taylor Swift makes Chinese food taste better, and this week’s #StaticPodcast listener question: are collector’s editions worth the money? We also chat to the Sphero team about the technology behind creating the Star Wars BB8 drone as a real life gadget — plus science action man, Dr. Chris Gillies, tells us about the part we can all play in marine conservation.

Join host Rae Johnston is joined by Lifehacker Australia journalist Spandas Lui, Gizmodo Australia’s Campbell Simpson, and Kotaku Australia’s Mark Serrels.

As always, a big thanks to The X Studio.
