    As the conversation winds down, pottery takes centre stage. Amanda proposes a pottery class to Marco, inspired by their talented potter sister-in-law. A hilarious anecdote emerges about Marco and Amanda's friend Michael Miranda and a particularly enthusiastic pottery discussion.
    Looking for more artsy inspiration? The episode then explores the captivating world of ceramics with a nod to "The Great Pottery Throw Down" and "Blown Away."

Share your thoughts in the comments and help them decide!Celebrating a friend's birthday: They raise a toast (or a cup of chamomile tea) to their dear friend and fellow insomniac and friend of the podcast, Michelle Miracle. Be sure to follow her on Instagram @instagiracle and send her photos of your favourite fire hydrants for her birthday, or peruse her amazing artwork at https://www.michellemiracle.com/gallery.As always, the hosts hope you enjoyed this episode.

Asleep in 10 mins

It works - This podcast puts me to sleep within 10 minutes! 10/10

Charmingly dull—that takes skill!

This podcast amuses me so much and I look forward to each episode. I can listen to the same episode many times and not get bored, because I always drift off. I want to make it to the end because I amused with how cleverly and easily they pivot from one dull topic to another. Sometimes I have to listen in the daytime just to observe how they do it and it always makes me laugh. It takes a lot of skill for two obviously intelligent and funny people to be earnestly dull for 26 minutes!
