Another guest star! This time, Matt (aka wicknix) of PowerPC web browser fame and other fascinating projects. He's is probably best known at this point for providing updated builds of TenFourFox in the form of InterWebPPC. Not only is he active and helpful on the MacRumors PowerPC Forums, he was also kind enough to spend some time with us on here on the show. Thanks again, Matt, for the great conversation!
We also discuss our efforts to resurrect the venerable iChat AV to make it work with audio and video chat again!

We did something insane on this one. This entire episode was created on PowerPC Macs from the early 2000s. Audio chat, recording, editing, and even uploading it to PodBean. Why? Because we could!
Euro and Chris talk about the history of the PowerPC processor and their experiences using PowerPC based macs in 2021.
