Merlin Mann’s frank & candid weekly phone call with John Roderick of The Long Winters.

Customer Reviews

The description says 'frank & candid'

To quote ep 4:

"Antidepressants? Booyah!"

Like is says on the label...

Opinionated, intelligent, and in-depth commentary.

John Roderick is an opinionated musician of The Long Winters from Seattle while Merlin Mann is Mr. Inbox Zero from San Francisco. Together they are highly entertaining. The show consists of Merlin calling John. In ways that should not surprise any followers of either men, John refuses to "agree to disagree" and Merlin continues to write things on 3x5 notecards. Commentary ranges from guitars, raising children, and how the Seattle Public Library is actually a space ship. It is safe to say if you are under the age of the 25, you may be too young to understand cultural references and jokes. Never fear! Anyone with an open and adult mind will enjoy this show.


I love this podcast. It helps that I've been a fan of Merlin and John Roderick in their other ventures (YLNT, various mac podcasts, 43folders etc.. & the Long Winters) for years, but even if you aren't aware of their other works, this podcast is still just as funny and insightful and dare I say "inspiring" as anything else on iTunes. Every episode is the aural equivalent of a Fruity Pleaser.
