Dan and Merlin discuss the upcoming big Apple event and why this one's potentially interesting. Also, dog anecdotes.
441: Boggle, Boggle!
exposing kids to the canonical films
that weird, affected Hollywood accent
a name for that time comparison phenomenon
making your voice interactions more fun
catching up on the Platinum Age of TV
dealing with device charging at scale
440: It's Never Been About the Suit
Lots of talk about the changing media landscape, plus some odds and sods.
439: Servant of the Red Badge
DISCUSSED: finding an actor's age and height; time analogies; Merlin needs help naming two critical phenomena; Dan is dissatisfied with how cars look; could Wolverine get a Caillou tattoo, and would it grow back, hmmmm?; Merlin is getting into plants (no, not sexually); the return of that time when Danny held the license plate; and finally, Merlin has a long stemwinder on an admittedly amorphous topic: the unimpeachable benefits of undoing most of the buttons we've clicked.
438: The Mashed Potatoes Need You
DISCUSSED: Merlin has a little visitor today. Dan has some thoughts on conference scheduling. This leads to a broader discussion of the sensitivities we may or may not have to other peoples' limitations and constraints. It's nice to meet people.
For some reason, religion, churches, and clergy are discussed. "This is what Peter did say!"
Finally, the guys answer a listener question about working from home. Merlin poses a challenge.
