123: I Want to See Your Face the Whole Time (LIVE)

June 11, 2013 at 5:00PM • 1 hour 29 minutes • Wiki Entry

TOPIC: First Meeting, Gifts, and Grifts

This week—after 122 episodes, plus almost a decade of internet pal-dom—Dan and Merlin finally meet and record in a room together for the first time.

With only passing nods to the nominal topic of "gifts," Dan and Merlin mostly get to know each other.

Why is Dan staring so penetratingly at Merlin? Does Dan think Merlin is fat as well as old? Why does Dan keep looking at his phone? Does that look clean to you? Whose show is it, really? Is John Siracusa slender or sickly? Why can't I show you the sole of my shoe? Should we stand up? Who am I thinking of? Is it hot in here or is it just me? Which one am I?

Also, bathrooms.

Inarguably, a Very Important Episode™.
