Pentertainment Podcast Ep. 20 "The Law of Diminishing Marginal Utility, or whatever Roy just said"
The "Law of Diminishing - what?" As you'll see in the notes below, we had the intention of diving right into a sexy topic about our pen usage during the imposed isolation. But, we got diverted...often. It's the unscripted style you've come to expect from the Pentertainment Podcast. We eventually talk about pens.
