What is "other" on my phone's storage? How do I handle my life being thrown off track? What's the policy on renaming a fostered fish? Are mushrooms a vegetable? How do I smile from behind a mask? Can I run through people's sprinklers? How do I start a conversation with my roommate about enjoying your work? How do I navigate bookstore genres without consulting someone in person? Hank Green and John Green have answers!

[Dear Hank and John intro music]

Hank: Hello and welcome to Dear Hank and John!

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

H: It's a podcast where two brothers answer your questions, give you dubious advice, and bring you all the week's news from both Mars and AFC Wimbledon. John--

J: Yes?

H: What part of the human body is long and flexible and is about-- is about two feet long, and it contains the letters P, E, N, S, and I?

J: [laughs] I'm just gonna say "what?"

H: It's the spine! 

J: Ah! The spine.

H: The spine, John!

J: The spine.

H: [laughs]

J: Hey, Hank, so I found out something really interesting this week. This is gonna blow your mind. 

H: Okay.

J: You know our Uncle Mike? We don't have favorite uncles, but if we did.

 H: [laughs}

J: You know our Uncle Mike, our famously--

H: Our famous Uncle Mike, yeah. 

J: Our famously quiet, reserved, brilliant, impressive, imposing, intimidating Uncle Mike? 

H: [laughs] Yeah, I know. I know Uncle Mike.

J: I just found out that Uncle Mike listens to this podcast. 

H: And he just listened to me make a spine joke, John!

J: Not my favorite spine joke of all time, but--

H: I'll have another one for you next week. 

J: I can't wait. Anyway, hi Uncle Mike, if you're listening.

H: Yeah-- he was very sweet, he said some very nice things about the podcast, and my book! In an email to me, which is a nice moment to get an email from Uncle Mike. 

J: How many words were in the email, would you estimate? Under 50?


H: Oh, yes. 

J: Yeah.


H: Yeah. He's— he can say a lot with a few words. 

J: Indeed.

H: Unlike us.

J: [laughs] I know, you would think that we might've gotten a modicum of his ability to speak with some precision, but no.

H: [laughs]

J: We're about to ramble on for god knows how long, beginning with answering this question from Bryn.

H: Okay.

J: Hank, I wanted to ask this question because I actually know the answer.

H: Oh?


J: Like, I know the answer in such detail.

H: Mm-hmm.
