00:32 Rory the Hedgehog: Catherine catches us up on her prickly summer visitor.

08:23 Are You a Carpenter or a Gardener? Our discussion of this article on parenting styles devolved into a plan for Terri and Nicole to build a trellis and Catherine to buy it. 

19:49 Speed Round: What Is Your Theme Song? Catherine had a gardening-related tune at the ready, while Terri went for a Jimmy Buffett vibe and Nicole used this Buzzfeed quiz to help her out. (Also mentioned: "Crunchy Granola Suite," which turns out to be by Neil Diamond.)

24:34 Roundabout Roundup: We recommend two podcasts and one way to listen to them: a 99% Invisible episode on curb cuts, and the new Good Place podcast, plus these wireless headphones.

31:20 Shameless Self-Promotion: A new website for this podcast, "Let's Be Friends," and our very extensive podcast archives (see the "episodes" menu at the top right corner of the page, where you can sort by date or category).

Thanks as always to Jon Morin for our fun in-and-out music. If you're reading this somewhere without hyperlinks, come to for the full recap experience.
