Zeugma

This episode of Zeugma focuses on procrastination, a storied American pastime that can be both facilitated and interrupted by the Internet. The Zeugma team considers and tests various methods of communal and individual procrastination prevention, speaks with a UT professor who's an expert on procrastination, and talks to a gamer who's an expert at procrastinating. And, of course, we do a little procrastinating of our own.

Featuring interviews with Stefan, a dedicated and well-traveled part of the Couchsurfing community, and Anthony Volodkin, creator of the music-blog aggregator Hype Machine.
