Rami-Malek-Is-Doing-a-Scripted-Apocalypse-Podcast-You-Should-Be-Listening-To

There’s no denying the fact that we all spend way too much time on our phones. What kind of world would we live in, and what kind of experiences would we have, if there was a blackout that forced us to live without all technology except radio? That’s essentially the backdrop for the new scripted apocalyptic thriller podcast Blackout. It’s written by Scott Conroy. It’s produced by and stars everyone’s favorite fictional hacker and frontman, Rami Malek. It’s an exploration into the world of the human condition through the lens of apocalypse survival without zombies that hasn’t been done this well since the ill-fated TV show Jericho. We’ll be the first to admit that it’s at least mildly ironic to be listening to a podcast about a blackout on our phones, but the audio-only medium is perfect for this particular story. And, obviously, Malek and the rest of the cast are pretty damned great in each of their roles.

In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
