Ep. 8 – It Ain’t My Cup Of Meat

Strap in Jack, cuz this one's a long-y but a goodie! We sit down for a much needed rap about everything from baseball, beer, golf, our favorite song writers, if there ever has been a "good year" and much much more. We hear a word from our brilliant, cutting edge, and resolute sponsor before going into this weeks super unique Dead Deep Dive. We get nerdy. We get dramatic. We get repetitive. But all you have to do is kick back, smell a rose, paint your face, and enjoy.  "They say every man needs protection, They say that every man must fall, Yet I swear I see my reflection, Somewhere so high above this wall" – Bob Dylan

Voice acting is hard - especially when no one pays you for it, and your mic isn't that good, and you're sight reading the lines. But we persevere and rise like cream.
