Reconcilable Differences 57: Losing my Stormtrooper

Released Thursday, 27th July 2017
Good episode? Give it some love!
This week kicks off with Merlin walking John through his exciting new nap workflow. John has significant safety concerns. In dog news, it seems Daisy has discovered toilet paper.

This week’s accidental main topic finds your hosts ending up talking a lot about 80s Music. Why are all the lyrics sites wrong? U2 vs. R.E.M.? How even would you make a radio mixtape? Is it really just a matter of trust?

The more on-purpose main topic is Taking Care of Things. How did John get so careful with his stuff, and what exactly would happen if water dribbled on Merlin’s signed FF #1 with baby variant cover? Should spilt milk make anyone cry, and why is there rice everywhere?

The TV has a three-foot perimeter, but the plastic runner has been taken up for one day, because Jesus.
