  1. What a fun episode! As a podcaster, Dani has a natural, relaxed poise I hope to achieve some day.

    The line about “I’m sorry if I offend any Amish…who probably aren’t listening to this” made me laugh out loud, the first time I have done so while listening to podcast while at my new job.

    Also loved the whole bit about having to feel the unmarked Lego bags to figure out the toy inside. Sounds like a job for…THE TEN EYED MAN!

    1. Dani has far less “ummms” and “you knows” than I do.

      We recently had a huge influx of Amish families into our communities. So I was initially concerned I may have offended a neighbor. But…naw.

      The Ten-Eyed Man’s next crime wave could be feeling up all these blind-packaged collector toys and shoplfiting the “hard to find” figures! He must be stopped!

      But how would he work in Lego form with those strange, cupped hands?

  2. This was a fun episode for passing the time at the auto shop. Thanks for the tips on what to feel for when picking out Lego figure blind bags. The Wonder Twins shall be mine!

  3. How timely, I listened to this episode last week, while traveling in Denmark (the birthplace of Lego) for work. While I was there, I was able to visit a giant Lego store in Copenhagen. I chuckled every time I passed by the Lego Batman Movie section, because there was always someone there, feeling their way through the blind bags. This is clearly an international phenomenon that transcends cultural boundaries.
