This week Tom schools Tim on his new favorite currency, bitcoins. Tom explains how bitcoins are mined, sold and spent, or at least how he THINKS it all works. And Tim nods along like an old grandpa pretending to understand because he doesn't really care.

Also, Tim has a terrible encounter with a magician on a subway, we consider the merits of letting a 6 year-old ride the subway alone, and we solve a problem from a listener who was an accomplice to a "shrimping".
