All the hip young kids are using a thing called the internet these days. In fact, if you’re reading this summary or listening to this episode, odds are you’re using the internet right now. But what if it all just went away? No podcasts, no turn-by-turn directions, no swiping for romantic partners, hell, most of us wouldn’t even have jobs if there were no internet (see: everyone at Cracked).

It’s an interesting thought experiment to…think about…and experiment on. What would you do for a living; how would you get by day-to-day without the comfort, the convenience, the necessity of the internet?

Alex Schmidt and Kristi Harrison ask the Cracked staff that very question in this episode. They chat with Abe Epperson, Tom Reimann, Ann Smiley, Saundra Sorenson and Brett Rader about the unthinkable–how could we live 21st century life without the internet?
