the Alexa Skill Happy Meal Time Travel Challenge
. It’s produced by Gimlet Media and if it’s half as good as Chompers, it’s worth trying. Update: I’m sitting next to my Alexa so just tried it. It’s a true or false game, but closer to two truths and a lie, where they tell you stories from throughout time and you say whether the story is true or false. It’s kind of awesome. Let me know what you think!

If you’re following along the Luminary Launch saga, Digg just chimed in. Despite its title, which I thought would be positive towards Luminary that these stumbles happen to all startups, it focuses mainly on how Luminary doesn’t include show notes, proxies the podcast so hosts can’t see their actual download #s, etc. More disclosures: I’m not a journalist so don’t usually do disclosures, but if I were to, I’d mention Betaworks was an investor in Anchor and Gimlet (both acquired by Spotify) and
Digg, who published this story. Basically we’re involved in some way with everyone in this story except for Joe Rogan and Luminary. Actually, full disclosure, I downloaded the luminary app. Also, I should disclosed I have not
listened to Joe Rogan’s podcast. Okay, I think that’s it. Curious for everyone’s thoughts on Luminary now that we’re a week out of the launch. Have you tried it? Like it?
