Your Co-Host – Mr. Murphy
As a professional fictional lawyer, saboteur, and co-host, Mr. Murphy (of the law firm Murphy, Murphy, and Murphy) is a frequent visitor to the podcast since the first episode.
Best known for Murphy’s Law — A Definitive Guide to Wrecking Everything, Mr. Murphy is a big believer in whatever can go wrong, will go wrong, with a particular enjoyment of having it happen at the worst possible time, and in the worst possible sequence.
As a co-host of the Merchants of Dirt Podcast, Mr. Murphy serves as a constant reminder to always Murphy-proof your planning by trying to think like Mr. Murphy and beat him at his own game.
When not wrecking races, websites, or plans, Mr. Murphy enjoys collecting vintage hand-grenades, trail running and spending time with Bad Luck, his good hunting dog.
