The Australian Stew
content: Apr 3, 2020 · podcast: Apr 12, 2020
One podcast I listen to always and without fail is Roderick on the Line with John Roderick and Merlin Mann.
They talk shop on a variety of different topics, politics, history, technology, personal stuff. Whatever comes up while they’re on the line.
On a recent episode there was a minor recount of when Rodrick gave his “baby mama” a recipe from an Australian woman that he had been talking to on Twitter.
￼For whatever reason that struck a nerve with me. Probably because I’ve had bad experiences with people I was close to chatting with other people online. And historically I’m horrible at relationships. And the door swings both ways. And I’m nobody’s hero or role model.￼
Anyways, me being who I am I wanted to get Sara’s take on this Australian recipe exchange, get a female’s perspective. I put my Tascam microphone on the kitchen counter while we were making and having our dinner. She and I then discussed the ins and outs of such a scenario from our own perspectives.
Please note: I didn’t remember exactly what Roderick’s story was. And I still don’t. I’m sure there are plenty parts I got wrong.
Don’t take me to court.
PS- I recorded the intro first thing in the morning. And I wasn’t 100% awake so I wasn’t overly chipper. I wasn’t in a bad mood or anything, just didn’t have a spring in my step yet.
