Still great after all this time.

The degree of difficulty of having a podcast for 10 years and keeping it relevant and interesting is high. I think Dan and Merlin have been able to do this by basically just being themselves. I’ve listened since episode 1 during an interesting work transition in my life and never looked back.

Dan and Merlin gonna get PAID

The last year or two are driven by how many ad spots they’ve sold. The rest of the show is just random Merlin babble to fill the time they need to space out the ad reads.
