Should I contact the guy who owns the plane on which I was born? Are art and content different? Does it matter that the guy I'm dating has a six pack while I eat a lot of tacos? And more!

HG: Okay, exciting thing: on December 9th and 10th in Seattle Washington, we're going to be holding the first PodCon, a convention and conference of podcasters and people who love podcasts. We're doing it in partnership with Joseph Fink and Jeffrey Cranor from Welcome to Night Vale and Alice Isn't Dead and the McElroy brothers of lots of different podcasts.

John and I will be there doing a bunch of stuff including a live Dear Hank and John.  But, in order to know the full extent of what we can afford to do, we're launching it with and Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.  You can find that right now at  There are several different ticket levels and also a bunch of perks for people who can't attend, including and audio collection of absolutely everything that happens at the event. PodCon: for people who love podcasts. Coming to Seattle in December.  I hope we will hear you there and also see you there.  And now, on with the pod.

[intro music]

HG: Hello and welcome to Dear Hank and John.

JG: Or as I prefer to think of it, Dear John and Hank.

HG: It's a comedy podcast about death where two brothers give you advice that is doubious, answer your questions, and bring you all the weeks news from both Mars and AFC Wimbledon.

I'm Hank. This is John. How are you John?

JG: I'm alright. Uh, you know, Hank, I have to tell you the honest truth which is that there is a little bit of me that wishes that in addition to having, like, opted out of Twitter, I could just not have my daily thoughts consumed so much by certain, uh, political leaders in the United States. But this is the reality that I'm living in right now and I'm just trying to make a go of it here at Grover Cleavland High School.  Do you get that reference?

HG: I don't. I do not.

JG: Oh my God.  It's to the best movie ever.  I can't believe you've never seen Rushmore.  

HG: [high pitch, questioning] I have seen it, I think?

JG: Oh my God.  Even the idea that you don't know whether you've seen Rushmore is deeply upsetting to me.  That's honestly worse that if you just hadn't seen it.
