Episode 64: Don’t Meet Your Heroes

November 19, 2017

This week, Kodi goes on a date and has no time to waste. Plus, we break down our feelings on the current news landscape of finding out people we respected are total trash. All that, plus the usual nonsense.

Don’t forget to talkback to us on Twitter and Facebook.

We are available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, Google Play and TuneIn.
