What we all need

These guys have what we all need in life. A good friend to share stories with, a possitive outlook on lifes many hurdles, and the wit to keep us all entertained while being enlightened. This show helped me and my father go F2F over some huge and deep things. I know we have gotten closer with some of the advice shared from Dan and Rory. And now, we have so many more RRGT's together.

You can’t have an RRGT without first going F2F

You need these guys in your life. They offer a perspective on all the relatable life topics you didn’t know you needed.

I assure you when you finally go F2F with your own self, only then will you have an RRGT.

Thanks guys! Love ya!

Best theme song ever...

Superlative chemistry. Great banter. Deep insights. Fantastic sandwich recommendations. However, the magic really happens between the episodes when your trying to put your eight month old baby boy who has the flu to bed and no regular lullabies are working. Tears for all the classics, Twinkle Twinkle, Baa Baa Black sheep etc. Until you start sweetly singing “If you want to be my friend...” and your sweet baby boy finally stops flailing himself in your arms like a rabid sloth and hitches a ride on the dreamland express. Thank you Patrick!
