Episode 39 - A Source Rice with Velocity
Dan and Merlin talk about the many facets of strength, including the complexity of knowing what to be strong about, to whom, and when.
It's about way more than nailing the "clean and jerk" or yelling at Sips-His-Coffee-Really-Loud Guy. It's also about accepting all the things they just can't stand about you.
Also covered: the inescapability of Italian disco, maintaining an unassailable lawn, confronting skinny ladies in heels, negotiating D-minus hip-hop, and finding the will to spelunk all the way down the personal productivity stack.
