In this episode we take a break from our usual alphabetic ramblings to pay respects to a great man who is no longer with us. Anthony Bourdain influenced us in so many ways and his passing has left us heartbroken. So we wanted to take some time to share stories, quotes, and admiration as well as hear from others who Anthony influenced along the way. RIP Anthony.

Woo boy, was this one a doozy. A huge technical problem in the post production process meant that it's taken hours and hours to put the track together.
