In this episode, I hang with Mike Moran, Ryan Sweeney, and Erwin Portillo. We talk hangover cures, the success of the Sidebar open mic night in Baltimore, national tragedies, and why society is actually getting better so we can all relax. I complain about the selfie generation, Mike talks about his fear of fish, and Erwin explains how white people’s hobbies are just as dangerous as living in the hood.
