26:46 – My last day before turning thirty (and doing daily shows). Chatting about sides to issues, The Coffee Club in Singapore and Australia, angry zebra crossings, Easter Saturday, coffee shop vibes, Goldilocks weather, standing desks, finding my old swing set, ridding ourselves of junk, retail workers on public holidays, Shambles on turning thirty, birds, and flowers.

That concludes this week of daily episodes documenting my last days as a 20-something, hope you enjoyed. See you all on the other side, and thanks for the all the kind words and comments, they’ve all really meant a lot :)

10:55 – I found my first attempt at rebooting the Rubénerd Show from January 2013! Topics included time stamp counters, audible tangents, tea, being back in Sydney, and torched coffee shops. Two years later, the show restarted for good with an episode that didn’t abruptly end with a door opening.
