Hell Yeah Brothers!

Easy to listen to! Here’s the thing takes concepts of art and philosophy and brilliantly simplifies them in memorable and meaningful ways. The lessons that Duncan and James discover along the way are so accessible because you go on the journey of discovery along side of them. Plus both of them are Hot. Looking forward to more episodes!
