Links and Show Notes

Following an accidental pre-show, John bans clapping, and Merlin announces he doesn't want to run a store.

In an epic mini-topic, John addresses how he deals with safely getting rid of old media. The answers will not surprise you.

Next, Merlin has questions about lawn signs. Frank Chu is remembered.

Frank Chu - Wikipedia

Chu has been campaigning to impeach an array of former U.S. Presidents he considers guilty of collaborating with a nefarious network of alien populations called the "12 Galaxies" to film him against his will, to broadcast this footage intergalactically, and to embezzle the royalties he is owed as a television and movie star.
