BONUS: Patreon Preview 2019

HELLO! Here is a preview of some of the content you can expect over on Patreon.com/isthisadulting. We have previewed funny episodes, and movie adventures in the past, but we wanted to show you what the episodes are like when we have a personal conversation with the listeners. These are unedited, but if you'd like to get episodes every week, you can do so at Patreon.com/isthisadulting. So this week, theres no movie. There isn't a wikipedia deep dive (mostly). There is less around me to talk about. This is a miniature real talk almost. I'm making changes. I am trying to be better. I hope you all will come along for the ride... -Steven
