Links and Show Notes

Merlin can't tell whether John is mad at him, but John claims that he's not.

In follow-up, listeners share even more upsetting information about ice machines, and John has further remarks on a podcast Merlin likes. Also, Merlin remembers to tell John about his health problems.

Names and pronunciation are further explored, and John criticizes Daisy's herding skills. Then, for some reason, they talk about lunchboxes for a while. John thinks Merlin should do more due diligence on his realizations.

In an unexpected burst of Macintosh nostalgia, your hosts recall weird hard drive problems and Kerry from MacWarehouse.

Then, Merlin has to go home to turn off the smoke alarm.
