Links and Show Notes

Things kick off with Merlin auditioning a new on-air style, and John coughing in a way that portends imminent health developments.

Listener-experts chime in on all manner of issues. Also John reveals his test results, and Merlin feels like a hungry man.

Things seem to be wrapping with an update on John's Unexpected Side Effect, but then they end up talking about food and medicine for, like, twenty more minutes.
