Ep # Title Original Airdate Link MP3
311 Where we're in constant need of Russ Frushtick's approval Wednesday, April 1, 2009 [1] [2]
Russ Frushtick of UGO joins The 404 again today for the fourth, maybe fifth, time? Who knows? Anyway, it's a video game heavy show with a lot of firsthand commentary from Mr. Frushtick on OnLive's new video game platform and Jack Black's new video game. You play as Jack Black, walk around for a few minutes before you have to sit down to rest, and then rock out old school.

313 Where Dennis Crowley snowboards and bikes his way into our hearts Friday, April 3, 2009 [5] [6]
Dennis Crowley, inventor of many things good, including Dodgeball (the social Web tool, not the terrible movie or the gym game Justin and Wilson can't play because of their thick glasses), joins The 404 today to talk about some interesting stories from the Web and his latest social Web tool, Four Square.

314 Where Tom Merritt hates fun Monday, April 6, 2009 [7] [8]
This weekend, Justin Yu made an appearance on Tom Merritt's and Roger Chang's podcast, East Meets West. Ostensibly, it sounds like a podcast about technology and Asian and Western cultures, right? Nope. Turns out it's half an hour where Tom and Roger ream Justin and The 404 for our use of "curse words."

315 Where we undo our top button Tuesday, April 7, 2009 [9] [10]
Yeah, we're not sure what the title of our show means today, but it's what happens when you let the chat room run the show. We think they want us to take off our clothes. Anyway, we're back to our old antics today: Bittr, Wii, Wolverine, iPhone, and pedometers.

Wilson's still at the car show, so Jeff and I play twosies under the table.

We also reveal more details about our Meetup, apologize for yesterday's spoiler, and discuss some seriously screwed up stories!

Jason Howell, from Bore Out Loud, keeps us classy in this very special episode of The 404. We make our big videocasting announcement. That's right! The 404, podcast of the future, is going to become a video podcast, so you'll be able to watch as Wilson looks deeply/creeply into the camera every morning. Plus, we get into some studio shenanigans as we prepare to revamp this place. And CNET TV is nominated for a Webby!

It's just the three of us today, but that's when we have the best shows. Before we get into stories, please be sure to check out the preshow some time at or During the weekdays, around 11 a.m. EST, Jeff, Justin, and Wilson spend about 20 minutes goofing off, and it becomes a riot.
326 Where we have a casual encounter with Jasmine France Wednesday, April 22, 2009 [31] [32]
Jasmine France joins The 404 today. Just a little warning: she had just flown into New York City on the red-eye from San Francisco and is pretty loopy for part of the show. But she does give us the 411 on the best MP3 player and headphones to get.
327 Where we're nervous magicians waiting in the wings Thursday, April 23, 2009 [33] [34]
Some Blues Traveler and a box of Glazed Pop'ems warm us up for another fantastic show. Just the three of us today. Justin is still trying to recover from his night out with the Jasmine France.

330 Where Tuna Tuesday becomes Bacon Tuesday Tuesday, April 28, 2009 [39] [40]
Ace reporter Caroline McCarthy from CNET News joins the show today to bring us bacon chocolate from Foodzie. It's kind of like, Etsy but for food. Wilson doesn't partake in the bacon, but he munches down on the bourbon chocolate. Jeff's not a fan of swine cocoa, but Justin can't get enough of it.
331 Where it's going to take more than a pony to cheer Jeff up Wednesday, April 29, 2009 [41] [42]
Today we find out why Jeff is walking around with his head down all day, and why Justin's new canine glows in the dark. It seems some genetic engineering has turned man's best friend into a flashlight.
332 Where we're trapped in a glass case of emotion Thursday, April 30, 2009 [43] [44]
After yesterday's downer show, we're back and cheerier than ever. Even Jeff is in good spirits after the New Jersey Devils got stomped all over their home ice. We discover today that Wal-Mart really does rock, and not in a good way.
