This week kicks off with a critique of Merlin's new haircut and eyeglasses. Also, Happy Birthday to Relay dot fm.
John's recommendation of a movie viewing option is very quickly withdrawn, but then he has an even better recommendation.
Next up, your hosts talk about John's experience with opening his Twitter DMs. This leads to a discussion of PR spam and the people who make it. What are the benefits and risks of making yourself more available? It's important to know what not to needle people about. Pop, pop, pop, pop, pop!
Merlin reads some listener mail, and John briefly disappears down a series of recursive memory holes.
Talk turns to chairs. Late chairs, lost chairs, and extremely coincidental chairs. Chairs!
Finally, since John has recently returned from his Summer trip, it's time to review his vacation results.
