Ep. 30: "Cement Gravy Boat of Suffering"

Ep. 30: “Cement Gravy Boat of Suffering” - Roderick on the Line - Merlin Mann on Huffduffer

The Problems: gripping at sand in Noordwijk; handcuffs on the rear-view mirror; dancing for children in a public square; how to stock up for John; trying to outsmart ghosts; learning why we stopped sleeping outside; how much for that dream girl in the window?; and the night John finally realized what The Light Dome was doing.

Ep. 24: "The Wrong Mustache"

Ep. 24: “The Wrong Mustache” - Roderick on the Line - Merlin Mann on Huffduffer

The Problems: Our great nation’s vein of Juggalos; out-of-period (OOP) vermin; small-cask Canadian hooker bacon; adventures in intellectual LARP-ing; underwhelming donut memorials (and their equally disappointing water features); preferred ladies footwear for dramatic airport escapes; John’s nationally-televised bass premiere; and the quiet release of some handy tail-losing techniques.

Ep. 23: "Flange of the Angel Curve"

Ep. 23: “Flange of the Angel Curve” - Roderick on the Line - Merlin Mann on Huffduffer

The Problems: John really feels his capillaries, Göring designs a flag, and Merlin cops to (generally) Grievous Daughterly Harm.

Also: how warm milk and a patient pencil can tease the scolex of a freeloading, Carter-administration parasite from the back of your Magic Hammer Pants.

One tip? Stockpile crudités.
