The latest installment of Wait, What? has the guys taking the show into the realm of video. No, you didn't read that wrong; Jason, Joe and Matt had their latest podcast recorded in an actual news studio in Washington, D.C. After the initial shock of being on camera wore off, the guys settle into a discussion on the use of Magic Bands at Walt Disney World and how the theme park uses these to enhance the visitor experience. At the same time, they talk about the privacy implications of these devices and just how willing a park-goer is to relinquish elements of their Personally Identifiable Information (PII) for ease of access to certain amenities.
On a related topic, the guys discuss the advent of Amazon's voice activated system known as "Alexa." The guys give Jason a pretty hard time about his "relationship" with Alexa, which makes for a great segment.
