Ben Gilbert is in charge of today's wild podcast ride, and he's taking Terrence and Joseph into uncharted territory: a place where people actually make cookie dough from scratch. The discussion attempts to swerve around the real issues, but ultimately slams head on into tech-related topics. You'll get the full skinny on Obama's recent NSA announcements, the emotional aspect of Beats Music and Facebook's full-on nerd feud with Princeton. It's a feet up kind of deal, so grab a mug of your favorite tea and settle in for this week's glorious episode of the Engadget Podcast.
