#193: The Wrong Helen

October 14th, 2022 · 91 minutes

Things kick off with an ambitious proposal to recognize outstanding work by team members and keep the relationship fresh.

After ticking an item off of his "queue," John leads a nominally rapid-fire round highlighted by a controversial new Secret Weird Things People Do.

Things wrap with a provocative Dog Update in which John leverages the love of a British TV show to re-home a new friend with Merlin's family. Merlin identifies the wrong Helen.
