5by5 - The Talk Show #36: Attacked by a Duck
worksology / Joshua Works
I travel full-time with my wife and son in a 27' Airstream International. We're on the road a lot and want to get as much benefit out of that time as possible. Podcasts seem natural.
There are no people in worksology’s collective.

Ep. 21: “Dead Rubber Girl in My Closet” - Roderick on the Line - Merlin Mann
The Problem: Oates, Alfalfa, and some numerous options for love.
Ep. 24: “The Wrong Mustache” - Roderick on the Line - Merlin Mann
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. 20: “We Can All Agree on Cheese” - Roderick on the Line - Merlin Mann
The Problem: Lot of people can’t enjoy a lady steak.

Judge John Hodgman Episode 36: Beard Science
We are joined again by guest bailiff Jake Tapper, Senior White House Correspondent for ABC News (who last was on duty for the case of De Plane). We are delighted he could join us and lend us an air of legitimacy.
Today, a case of Beard Science. A few years ago, college pals Bilder, McElroy and Pattley agreed to a game of beard chicken. The game is traditionally is played when two or more men face-off against each other by not shaving; the man who goes the longest without a shave wins the game. Bilder claims that he participated only because they settled on a modified version of the game, which would allow him to shave partway through.
In the course of the game, Bilder accumulated the most days unshaven, but McElroy claims he is the winner, with the most consecutive bearded days.
Was their original agreement valid? Did the modified terms fundamentally alter the essence of the game? And who is the real winner of beard chicken?
Judge John Hodgman Episode 34: De Plane
Elisabeth and Melissa are good friends and enthusiastic travelers, who often journey together on planes and in cars across the country. While their traveling styles mesh for the most part, they are divided on a hot-button issue: the correct way to de-plane once you've arrived at your destination.
Elisabeth, who prefers to take the aisle seat, believes that the aisle-sitter bears some burden of judgment, and may choose to wait a reasonable amount of time before stepping into the aisle, without asking permission of his or her seatmates.
Melissa, on the other hand, is frequently a window-seater, and believes that people should abide by the "row by row" rule as a general rule. Melissa thinks that Elisabeth (or whoever is aisle-sitting) should ASK before letting others off the plane before them.
WHO IS RIGHT, and WHO IS WRONG? Only Judge Hodgman can decide.
