Let the memes save us

Seamus and Nic are loving the memes right now, and find they really do help take the edge off a tricky time. But can we please stop trying to turn everything into an industrialised meme factory? Not everything needs to be commodified!

This leads to Joe Rogan's new Spotify deal, which leads to apps and tech we will definitely use differently after the 'rona times calm down a bit, which leads to Assassin's Creed telling us the next one is even bigger makes us both a little less excited for it (but we'll still love it).

If that wasn't a weirdly literal rundown I don't know what is, but there's plenty more I'm sure I've forgotten along the way...
