Discussion (with spoilers) of Blinded by the Light. Andy B thinks it’s a far-right religious revelation film ending in the destruction of everyone in the world except the pious few, but Andy C explains it’s a joyous tear-inducing coming-of-age film about an Asian British teenager coping with racism and turbulent family relations through his love of the music of Bruce Springsteen.

Those programming videos by Andy B are: Interesting Characters – about Unicode and character sets, and how surprisingly fun and interesting they are, and What Does the Linker Actually Do for Us? – about the C and C++ linker, and what it really does.
