Scams with Dan Deacon (LIVE)

We did a live episode in Austin, Texas during SXSW with our good friend Dan Deacon! It was ostensibly about "scams" but things went off the rails and got weird very quickly. Among other things, we talk about gross shenanigans at work, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and we solve a couple problems from a very nice, patient man.
