  1. “…that doesn’t immediately smell like a chemical…”

    If Marc’s high school chemistry teacher wasn’t already dead, this killed them. Because Marc has a fairly substantial science background, definitely enough to be embarrassed by endorsing the layman’s definition of chemical. It’s ok though. Dumbing things down is what the internet was made for. Well, that and porn. And I think we can all agree we don’t need you be to contributing to that.

    Enjoy your summer guys.

  2. You guys rock, this is by far my favorite woodworking podcast. Quick follow up question. Which white noise maker were you talking about Marc that worked so well with your kids? My wife is due with our second and I wanted to purchase the one you were talking about. Thanks! (I actually looked on your amazon page but it wasn’t there)
