    This was a fun episode to record. I’ve been wanting to get Rob on the show for a while. Plus, I feel like electronic technology is such an alien realm for most designers, but it is something of which they really need to become aware, because unless they’re just doing couture, it will affect their work fairly soon, if it hasn’t already.
