Crack a beer, have a listen

When I was younger, so much younger than today, I never needed anybody's help in any way. But now I'm older and I feel so insecure... At least I did until this podcast taught me to host like never before.

Great Motivation

This is a great motivational podcast for getting all of us to host our friends more often. If these two guys can do it, so can we.

Very Entertaining

These guys could spend 45 minutes talking about doing their taxes and it would still be entertaining. Not only do these guys have some great stories and experiences to share, but the personality they bring while sharing these things makes for some of the best listening you will find in a podcast. I am already planning some meals around the barbecue sauces they crafted and would highly recommend listening to these “ding-dongs”, it is well worth your time.
