Word of warning… this site and the podcasts may contain adult language that is not suitable for children or the easily offended. Don’t say we didn’t warn you! Sit back, hit play, and learn something along the way (and hopefully have a few laughs as well). We are not professional comedians, but we play them on TV 😉
