Episode 40

Episode 40:

We’ve got a packed studio (and mini reunion) for DIU Podcast’s season two finale. Joining Gavin, Jack, and Kyle in studio this week is Jonathan and Taimoor – two friends who just so happened to be in Japan while Jack and Kyle were visiting. The gang retell the story of their initial meeting. The four then go on to describe the experiences travelling with their respective travel partner and a surprising number of similarities appear.

Jack’s mind is blown when Jonathan and Taimoor both state that they have white girlfriends – shattering Jack’s old worldview that Asian men can’t get with white girls.

Lastly, the higher-ups at DIU Podcast have finally had it with the Love Guru’s lack of new articles. Season two ends with another major cliffhanger as it is revealed that the Jack has been stripped of his Love Guru title. What does this mean for the Kao Lui Corner? Find out in season three!

DIU Podcast will return in late March… (date TBA)

Episode 39

Episode 39:

Kyle drops by the studio this week as we hear his side of last week’s TFTI story. Gavin then brings in the topic of how a group of teenagers who vandalized a historic school in Virginia were recently sentenced to basically write book reports. More importantly, we learn about Jack’s disinterest in reading books for educational purposes. Meanwhile, a very stressed out Jack brings in the issue of whether or not we should stick to our comfort zones or to see what else life has to offer. The conversation goes extremely deep as Kyle and Gavin debate with Jack about the purpose of life and the idea of a quarter-life crisis.

Afterwards, the Love Guru, who has not written a new article since episode 34, continues his streak of not providing new content alive. Instead, he tries to avoid the situation by asking Gavin and Kyle about their ideal women.

Episode 38

Episode 38:

Up-and-coming mukbang personality, Momo, joins us this week on DIU Podcast. Jack brings in the issue of how his bros disappear after they get into relationships. The discussion seems oddly specific and directed to someone in particular (very passive-aggressive). Meanwhile, Gavin talks about the issue of self-entitlement. Are we self-entitled? Is it a bad thing to be self-entitled? All discussed, while throwing (not-so) subtle shade at Jack for posting TFTI on a Facebook comment thread.

Afterwards, sparks begin to FLY as Jack questions Momo during the Kao Lui Corner! Listen in as Jack begins to list off the qualities he wants to see in his wife, and stay tuned in as we may witness the origin story of the Internet’s newest power couple – Jomo <3 !!!

Episode 37

Episode 37:

Joining us in studio this week is a fellow podcaster and creative-mind, Robin. We spend the bulk the of the show talking about content creation, creativity, and making it in the podcast world. The conversation skews many times as we also talk about: being controversial, shit-talking, why Gavin picked Jack to be on the show, and regional slang.

Afterwards, the Love Guru grills Robin about his dating life as things get descriptive on the Kao Lui Corner.

Loose Ends

I briefly mentioned this story on the show, but couldn’t recall specific details. It was Sean Spicer, the White House Press Secretary, who said Trump’s inauguration held the largest audience ever, period.

According to the Harry Potter wikia page

An individual male human with magical ability is known as a wizard (plural: wizards), and an individual female human with magical ability is known as a witch (plural: witches), though “wizard” is sometimes used as a gender-neutral singular noun like “man”.
