The Talk Show
‘How Many Fingers Should This Baby Have?’, With Special Guests Craig Federighi and John Siracusa
Monday, 14 December 2015
Apple senior vice president of software engineering Craig Federighi joins the show for a wide-ranging half-hour discussion about Swift — Apple’s new programming language that just went open source.
Next, John Siracusa returns to the show to follow up on Federighi’s segment on Swift. Other topics include Apple’s new Smart Battery Case for the iPhone 6/6S, and our mutual (and perhaps futile) desire to head into this week’s premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens knowing as few spoilers as possible.

On the eve of the finale of "Project Runway," Andy and special guest Merlin Mann talk about Season 14. Along the way, they talk about creativity, working under pressure, and the differences between how one processes failure in their Twenties and Forties.
Neil Tyson chats with whistleblower Edward Snowden via robot. In Part 1, they discuss Isaac Newton, education, chemistry, encryption and privacy, and more.
A reflection on how John Siracusa began writing reviews of Mac OS X for Ars Technica.
Steve chats with Merlin Mann about his history with libraries, the importance of the library as a community space, why libraries aren't dead, and checking in with the Library Elf. Merlin Mann is an independent writer, speaker, and broadcaster based in San Francisco. Merlin created 43 Folders, co-hosts Back to Work, Roderick on the Line, and Reconcilable Differences (and appears on…
Psychiatrist, musician, geek, and author Kourosh Dini guests to explain why managing tasks is so hard and, with that knowledge, how to use technology to get work done.
He doesn't fully grasp what the seduction community is about, but there is truth in what he says.
For example, the Mystery Method fully deserves to be crapped upon and one can empathize with Merlin even if one doesn't agree with him wholesale.
He's an insightful guy, if you cut him some slack on this topic.
The "community" can handle it, really.
And let's be honest: most guys in the "community" are bumbling fools who don't understand the first thing about real self-improvement—even if there are exceptions.
Anyway, Merlin's thesis remains valid.
It doesn't require tearing down others; he just chose to dismantle his own (somewhat true) concept of the "community" to illustrate what to do better.
That's what we should all be focusing on anyway: how can I do better?
How can you?
In August 2012, Brett interviewed Merlin Mann on the now-legendary 6th episode of Systematic. Thus was a trilogy born. From processes to pills and apps to naps, one of Systematic's signature returning-guest series was born.
Using the latest in bleeding-edge digital technology, we have restored these episodes to the original creative vision that was literally, figuratively, and metaphysically impossible at the time.
We've gone all the way back to the original masters, removing and modifying content (ads) that distracts from the auteur's intent. What results is a bespoke, artisanally created Special Edition product unlike any in the crowded Merlin Mann Podcast market today.
This presentation of The Original Trilogy of Merlin Mann includes bonus, never-before-heard, ultra-exclusive deleted content, presented in the most ridiculous and semi-obtrusive way possible that does not involve a Blu-ray player.
Special Thanks to George Lucas, the Fair Use Clause, The United States of America, and The Merlin Mann Trust.
