Judge John Hodgman Episode 46: The Clap Trap

| 0 comments

Dueling banjos! Or at least, a banjo and bandleader. Greg and Eric bring a question of performance before the Judge. Eric is in favor of suggesting that the audience clap along to their music, to enhance the experience and the music itself. Greg claims it's uncool and uncalled for as an imposition to the listeners. Who is right, and who is wrong? Listen in and feel free to clap along!

Judge John Hodgman Episode 45: Apocalypse Row

| 13 comments

Pop Quiz: The super-pocalypse is imminent --the zombies have already crawled out of their graves and infiltrated the capitol. Volcanic earthquakes have devoured the coastal cities in flames and you realize you’re no longer safe in your home. Where do you go?

Carrie and her husband Phillip are at odds like billionaires and the 99%. The dispute of whether or not to Occupy Wal-Mart is at such a fever-pitch the four horseman are breaking a sweat. Phillip has a military background and believes that the most logical plan is to take control of a nearby Wal-Mart which is fully stocked with food, ammunition and has cold storage. It’s also easily defensible.

Carrie, on the other hand, feels that a more holistic approach to fleeing the locust swarm is the answer. She posits that Wal-Mart on Black Friday is already like the rapture and that the best medicine is to stay away. With abundant farmland and plenty of Natural Resources nearby, a return to nature will provide a safe haven.

Should they batten down the hatches and roll back the prices or live off the valley in the shadow of death? Only one brave man (who’s actually written a book about just this sort of thing) can decide! Judge-ment-Day John Hodgman
