#212: Green Grow the Onions

Every scallion contains a continuum.

July 7th, 2023 · 96 minutes

A question about question marks becomes a fairly detailed exploration of proper calendar usage and workplace culture. This inexplicably leads to a conversation Merlin recently had about engineering.

John has some Follow-Up on how Vision Pro might handle being used in unusual situations. Casting the right shadow is hard.

Next up, John has questions about Merlin's new interest in onions. Plants are discussed.

For the main topic, John has questions about Merlin's recent Wedding Results. John also tells Merlin things he should have said on other podcasts.

For this month's members-only bonus show, your hosts discuss Spider-Man: Across the Universe (2023).

Also: a surprising amount of R.E.M. talk.
