To a Certain Degree

Miller John II

This episode was recorded October 17, 2016. Listen to the whole conversation in the player above, or click on the links below to go to a specific segment of the show!

Miller’s the first two-time guest on the show, and so I had a good time changing it up! Luckily, this show coincided with the news that Sir Bob Dylan (assuming he gets knighted, which should happen any day now) received the Nobel Prize. That gets worked into the 20 questions game, and a couple of tunes.

Our very special guest also turned 13 recently, so we talked about some of the big milestones coming up such as driving. I also tried to give him some advice, and we’ll see how that goes.

0:00 – It’s Miller time! That’s not overused or anything. He plays High or Dry.

2:19 – “I’m trying to impress you because you’re slightly younger than me. Is it working?

8:09 – “Would you want to be carrying around a bottle just in case you needed to shiv somebody?

12:27 – The questions switch. We’re featuring quotes from Bob Dylan to commemorate his prize.

15:28 – “I change during the course of a day. I wake and I’m one person, and when I go to sleep I know for certain I’m somebody else.”

17:50 – “So you’re blaming the host. You think that’s a good idea?

22:01 – “Steal a little and they’ll put you in jail, steal a lot and they’ll make you king.”

26:48 – “Some people just hear the music, and some people have an experience.”

27:52 – Miller turns teen. There are some big events and milestones coming up, including driving.

31:48 – “Please don’t use me as a role model.”

34:56 – “ You can’t go to a certain degree. You go to SPACE this is the URL now,”

35:51 – We talk generational expectations and biases.

39:03 – Bad Business Idea® are go! Fake Bake is a protein alternative to really controversial meats like veal and tiger. Clean Sheen? Well, you’ll just have to listen to find out more.

41:09 – “If somebody points out that this doesn’t taste like an endangered animal or taste like a baby animal, you could just call them evil!

42:18 – “Do you know how many soaps are meat-based?

43:47 – “Imagine getting clean and experiencing what a tiger does all at the same time.

44:18 – “No, I’m not going to put the soap on the back burner. I’m going to take the soap off the oven, because why is it even on there in the first place? I’m going to throw it in the garbage, and I’m going to make you take out the trash.”

45:43 – Pop quiz hot shot! Which is a line from a famous movie. At least one famous movie.

48:03 – “I don’t want an AI. Why can’t I just open the door?

54:25 – Talking about lessons from a father to a son.

58:28 – “You know how I feel about my hair getting messed up.”
