WARNING: UNREHEARSED AND UNCENSORED We are 3 friends who, from time to time, get together and talk some smack, typically while having a few drinks. Our conversations ramble from subject to subject, and we all have a different point of view based on our life experiences. We figured our conversations were worth cluttering up the podcast scene just a bit more. So here we are, idiots, with beards, talking to the internet.
