    Ah, but we were skeptical about Pride! Someone asked “Should we march in Pride?” and the answer was a quick and unanimous “yes”!

    Great show in general, but I found the XY problem particularly interesting. I think a lot of people would have heard of it complained of colloquially but it’s fascinating to hear it described that way.
    (If you read this, please sub-vocalise with your excellent Australia accent. It’s actually racist now if you don’t.)

    I agree with Cai, the XY problem and the related psychology paper were particularly interesting. Could you post a link to the paper here? (Yes, I know, I’m too lazy to search…)

    Perhaps the first Patreon goal should be to stop Mike ever using his Australian accent again…. that should do the trick.

    Every time Mike does his Ozzie accent it reminds me of Ronnie Johns doing Uncle Chop Chop … also don’t google Ronnie Johns doing Uncle Chop Chop anywhere near anyone that can ever be offended by anything…..

    That’s exactly who I’m doing, Jason!
