Things kick off with an immediate derail into Merlin's Apple Health data, with John noting that he never liked Statistics.
Next up, your hosts have—at least by their standards—a pretty big announcement. This leads to an appropriately in-depth exegesis into the process of making and selling a t-shirt.
👉 If you think you might enjoy having one, please consider buying our shirt.
In Follow-Up, John is still monitoring the trades for insight into whether he wants to buy the TV he thinks he wants to buy. This is, as you know, not a decision John takes lightly, so he has sought the counsel of a Former Professional TV Calibrator. Which is apparently a job.
In further Follow-Up, John's toes are still a mess—and John saw the charts that prove it.
In the interest of equal time, your hosts discuss the stuff that they buy from creators they love. Merlin has a cascade, and John doesn't wear his own shirts. Or hoodies.
This leads to the sad backstory behind John being contacted by one of his heroes. Imagine getting an email from somebody whose photo used to hang on your teenaged wall asking you to stop doing something.
