This simple extension looks for the latest episode of the Hello Internet podcast by CGP Grey and Brady Haran and displays the episode number as its badge. Clicking the icon displays a popup with links to all the episodes. Clicking a title will open a new tab and navigate to that episode on hellointernet.fm. The extension will recheck for a new episode every 15 minutes. If a new episode is found, a notification is displayed.
I’m pretty sure I’m the only one who has a use for this.

– Update 1.0.9: Fixed another problem with special episode titles
– Update 1.0.8: Yet another bugfix
– Update 1.0.7: Fixes a problem with the handling of malformed episode titles (again) and changes the behaviour for the badge number back to the old way (unnumbered episodes get a special badge and are otherwise not counted)
– Update 1.0.6: Fixed a bug with unnumbered Episodes (sorry about that)
Worked until episode 100, when it now just says “SP”
Works really well!
Does the job and does it well
