Reconcilable Differences

John Siracusa and Merlin Mann try to figure out exactly how they got this way. Hosted by Merlin Mann and John Siracusa.


Reconcilable Differences 6: Mud and Gaffer's Tape and Broken Lenses

This time kicks off with Merlin's torpor, then continues with FU on miscrediting Synecdoche, NY, recommendations on the making of Fury Road, and an extended meditation on the social psychology of web commenting.

Then on to the scintillating topic of the week: food and cooking. In which we learn that your hosts and their families are both/all screwed up and hopeless in different ways. All involved are, as they say, chopped.

Merlin is weird, but not bulimic; John is picky, fretful, and hopeless; and children continue to be a problem that cannot be solved.
