Real men paddle swan boats

I would have paid good money to see you on that swan boat!
Genius idea to have the artist describe some of his photos that we could not see. It peaked my curiosity enough to actually check out his Instagram page, which I probably wouldn’t have done otherwise. Nice job, Theo!

Fascinating exploration of American culture & politics

These guys clearly do their research before they interview their guests and have done a great job so far of finding interesting guests.
