A small Northwest town is a typewriter hub for an unexpected niche of writers. Despite ever evolving technology, typewriters remain popular among a crowd that defies stereotypes and time. 

Also, Wonder Woman dominates the theater. Nick and Dyer offer reviews and news of the new DC film. Stay tuned for a Wonder Woman quiz, too. How much do you know about the iconic superhero? 

Then, Vice Waypoint contributor Steve Haske stops by to talk about his article “The Complete, Untold History of Halo.” It is the most comprehensive and unique account of behind the scenes of the Halo video game.
