  1. I read them in Clarkson’s voice every week. I don’t remember exactly when you turned (drifted?) the corner on making these ridiculous, but it’s easily the best decision you’ve ever made for the podcast.

  2. Fools in mild weather states lamenting the lack of winter clothing is mildly annoying, but I’ll get over it.

  3. New bingo tile suggestion: “Norm brings up something like it’s a new topic when in reality Will directly asked him a question about that exact thing minutes earlier”. Might be a bit too long though.

  4. This is the first time I’ve ever watched the podcast (I mostly listen to the podcast while walking to work or between classes). Does Chan do the air drums every time when the music plays? Because it’s adorable.

  5. Dang. I was planning on reading some of the books Will’s recommended on the show but he’s hurting my soul with this Song of Ice and Fire hatred. Liking book 1 and hating 2-3 is like some kind of reality paradox.

    Agreed. Patience, Will. Patience.

    I’m also curious if he tested the the IQ84 1-device restriction. There are numerous Amazon reviewers saying it isn’t true.

  6. Norm designed his own house? Damn. Livin’ the dream.

    I think he’s designed a future dream house, but not the house he is living in now.
