Also: a very important $23 bottle of bourbon, and the packable long-distance cycling backpack that changed how our editor travels.

So, you want an overland conversion-ready 4×4 straight from the factory, eh? Folks in the U.K. are in luck: the Land Rover Defender Hard Top has been announced.

Also in this episode: 10 gorgeous tech gadgets that have won a 2020 Red Dot Design Award; why a $23 bottle of bourbon is so important to the spirits community; and a packable backpack that changed how our editor Steve Mazzucchi travels around the city.
