Food, Sweat, and Fears with Regina Bartlett - S3 E15

Dear Listeners, Real Talk. Show notes are the bane of my existence. They are literally the worst part of having a podcast. They murder my soul. If these were not reasons enough to put an end to this madness, the sheer number of arguments that show note deadlines have created in my marriage should be. I have a theory that shows notes are an unnecessary source of information that can easily be replaced with some good old fashion Facebook stalking.
