John Siracusa and Merlin Mann try to figure out exactly how they got this way. Hosted by Merlin Mann and John Siracusa.
The Problem Is It’s Accurate
Merlin's networking is not working, John continues to be vexed by UK speakers, and they both can't stop talking about the software and services that ostensibly exists to help them watch moving pictures on the TV.
It’s Captured My Almonds
Your hosts return to topics around AI—with a focus on the new class of wearables intended to bridge the gap between meatspace and The Great Intelligence.
Best, First, Favorite
As a main topic, your hosts officially introduce their concept of "Best, First, Favorite" (or "BFF"). An exegesis ensues on the distinctions and purposes of this powerful new Thought Technology.
The Light From a Dying Star
Your hosts talk about pronunciation and BFFs.
Theater Kids and Sad People
Your hosts discuss _Station Eleven_ and strategies for surviving a given apocalypse.
John introduces an unusual work-from-home practice. Which leads to your hosts wondering how they would row across the ocean in an open boat.
It's a podcast
Like all Relay.fm shows, this is supposed to be a tech podcast but is actually just two dads talking about what they did that day.
In this case it's John being his usual calm self and Merlin sounding like he's having an ongoing anxiety attack.
Merlin please let John talk
It's not difficult. Just shut up sometimes.
Merlin, you’re ruining the show
When I hear John literally struggling to get a point across because Merlin is *constantly* interrupting him with irrelevent points and trivia, I stop enjoying the show just from the frustration.
Merlin, you’re dominating the podcast and making it less enjoyable.
