This week we open on John struggling to jump through the hoops to get verified on Twitter. This leads to a discussion of the myriad ways in which abuse thrives unchecked in the absence of decisive action by Twitter-the-company. John excruciates over his now-required bio blurb.
In follow-up, several listeners are thanked and acknowledged, and Good Cop John just can't believe Merlin isn't a more strident and principled critic of "The Popcorn Trick."
Note: Since this episode was recorded, Paramount Vault appears to have pulled the Millennium Actress video from YouTube. Team RecDiffs will update if it reappears.
