Thanks for keeping Seattle weird!

And for telling us how you do it. This podcast is super interesting.

A welcome glimpse behind the rubber curtain

I used to get the Archie McPhee catalog back in college (ordered the boxing nun - is that you, Mrs. Thatcher? - and a rubber brain). The stories behind the products are funny and add a human element. It’s always great to listen to people that genuinely enjoy what they do!
