A Shirt’s Journey

Back Door Preparation
How to Talk to People.
The Pinching Opportunities
In a conversation both sprawling and comically on-brand, your hosts explore the concept of doing things "properly."
My husband and I were fans of John Siracusa and Merlin separately, so when they started this podcast we freaked out! And it has not disappointed. The dynamic is hilarious and honestly, we talk about Merlin and John and what they’re up to as much as some of our friends. It’s a niche show but if you’re in that niche, you’ll love it.
My Dinners with John and Merlin
As wonderful as it is improbable. These guys are deeply humane, profoundly humble, and absolutely, brilliantly, themselves. If you’ve ever found yourself about to be overwhelmed by the suspicion that everyone in the world thinks all human beings are as abysmally stupid as the panderers of network morning shows portray us, this one’ll instantly cheer you up. Trust me
I find the ways John and Merlin are similar and yet different fascinating and funny and I love it when the show gets completely derailed by an anecdote or saga that’s happening in their lives (e.g. John buying a refrigerator or Merlin getting his oven repaired).
