Episode 121: So Help You Pod, or Whatever

Episode 121

10th August 2013

A dispute regarding an egg pod chair causes Judge Hodgman decide what comes first: the chick or the egg?

Episode notes

Judge John Hodgman returns to the courtroom to rule on an important spousal dispute: So Help You Pod, or Whatever! He’s assisted this week by guest Bailiff Monte Belmonte of the terrific WRSI The River in Northampton, MA. Thanks again to Monte and WRSI for helping us produce this show!

Aaron wants to move his beloved refurbished egg pod chair into the home he shares with his wife, Kara. Kara objects to the outsized piece of furniture and says it needs to stay in storage until the time and place are right. Who’s right? Who’s wrong. Only one man can decide.

Thanks to Rick Amick for suggesting this week’s case name! To suggest a title for a future episode, like us on Facebook at Judge John Hodgman! We regularly put a call for submissions.

This is Aaron’s preferred location for the egg chair. We painted the wall yellow before we got that rug. Wall color is not permanent.

A second possible location for the chair. This room basically stores furniture. We haven’t done much to it but paint the walls. It will be a future nursery (and at that point, the chair would be squeezed out).

This corner is the most likely location for the chair. We would move the furniture/stuff to the other side. Sorry for the bad pictures; the room is too small to get a good wide angle.
