What do I say to my blind date? How do I get my mom to call me less frequently? Are you supposed to ask a father for his daughter's hand in marriage? And more!

John: All right Hank, cold open this week because we have a couple of important announcements.  First off, Hank, you and I are going on tour to celebrate the release of my new book, Turtles All the Way Down, 
Hank: Whoo!
John: which comes out October 10th,
Hank: Whoo!
John: and we're going to be in lots of cities.  Some of the shows are already sold out, but some are not.
Hank: Yeah. 
John. So if you live in Washington, DC;
Hank: Yeah! 
John: Charlotte, NC; Asheville, NC; Nashville, TN; Indianapolis; St. Louis, MO; St. Paul, MN; Missoula, MT.  Very excited for a Missoula show, Hank, we've never played Missoula before.
Hank: No, no, in fact, I haven't played Missoula since the very first show I ever played, which was a punishment on Vlogbrothers.  We're also gonna be in Spokane, WA; Portland, OR; San Francisco; Pleasanton, CA; and Los Angeles, CA.  We're also in Orlando, which you skipped because we haven't figured how to actually sell those tickets yet. 
John: Yeah, there's a problem because there is this big hurricane in Orlando, but we are gonna be in Orlando as well, hopefully tickets will be on sale by the time this podcast goes live.  We're gonna be in all those places, and you can learn more at, and that's also where you can get tickets.  We'd love to see you in person to celebrate Turtles All the Way Down, and Hank also has an announcement. 
Hank: Yeah, everybody, our second announcement is that we're changing the way the phrase of the week works, which I like the suggestion from Rosianna for a more coherent strategy for phrase of the week, which is that John and I both have separate phrases of the week, two different phrases, and John knows his, and I know mine, but we don't know each other's.  And at the end of the episode we're going to try and guess which thing the other person said was the phrase of the week.  So you have to get it in, and that means maybe wedging it in at the end, but also maybe I am just going to say a bunch of weird stuff, and John's going to have no idea.  
John: Right, so we're going to see if this works better as a bit, thanks to all the listeners for their helpful game suggestions
Hank: *laughs*
John: *laughing* for making the phrase of the week better.  We really appreciate your guys' continuing support even when we have dumb bits. 
Hank: *laughs*
John: Thank you so much.
Hank: Yeah you're supposed
