This week, Dave, Aline Sandouk, John Pienta, Doug Russo, and Tony Rosenberg reflect upon the joy that podcasting brings, as we were recording the show on International Podcasting Day (Sept. 30). Something else to celebrate: Doug (and Rob Humble) got to chill with an actual hobbit. Or maybe it was Sean Astin, it isn’t entirely clear. But whoever it was, Samwise was in Iowa stumping for Hillary Clinton. Hobbitses are very liberal, what with their hairy feet and pipeweed. Meanwhile, Doug was listening to the recent show in which Mark Moubarek discussed Rhoto eye drops, and bought some for us to “do.” After the burning subsides, we discuss the advice from an attending overheard recently: should everyone really try to know everything?
Also, Martin Shkreli returns to ask us to punch him in the face for charity. The DEA bans another plant. Dave considers a new career as a professional cuddler. And a baby has been born following a new IVF treatment has been tried in Mexico. Perhaps. Hard to say, since there have no peer or ethics review, just news articles.
