    A ruined building stands alone, wreathed in vines, wrapped in mystery. Its cracked portico reveals a dark and brooding entrance, occasionally brightened by a pulsing red dot of light.

    Hello. It's us again. We continue to creep towards a hundred much like Geoff Boycott in his pomp.

    This week we talk about, in no particular order: model robots, LEGO Space, Worzel Gummidge, notebooks, touch typing, Mac Pro, sweet wrappers, knots, the evils of social media, and, biensûr, pies.

    This week's podcast focuses on things we make that have no real worth. Many would say that covers this podcast and they're probably right.

    We look at recent news items that follow this trend; such as re-edits of 42-year-old children's films, speculative architectural visualisations, and self-digitising notebooks. "Why, why, why, why, why?", asks one of our hosts.

    But without making things that seemingly have no worth, how would we end up with beauties like x6udpngx?

    Rob and Jon ask if design can save retail? Can design save anything at all? They do their best to obfuscate the entire debate.

    Pies are consumed like the greedy capitalist pigs we are.
