175: Don't Throw The Banana Peel In The Toilet August 1, 2021 5:26 PM   Subscribe

It's only the first day of August, but the weather in Portland is such that it already feeling like plural dog days have elapsed. And yet, through it all, a podcast episode drags itself through the sun-baked streets to appear, sweating and winded, on your doorstep. Come along with Jessamyn and I as we...chatter about MetaFilter? Basically what we normally do. This one's about an hour and 45.

Oh! You can see it here; it's one of a bunch of watercolors I did for Inktober 2018. I sent the actual painting to Jessamyn at some point.
