Great Moments Are Born From Great Opportunities - HB

I have now listened to all of your shows. I really have enjoyed them!! I think your last show with Cam, Nick, Tony, and the Wizard was your best show. I think you may have found something that really works. Just dudes being dudes! Good company, outstanding food, and libations!! That last episode was PURE 🔥 fire!!

I have enjoyed them all, but that last episode just flowed.

Perhaps you will do a mixer at cleaver for friends of the show. Perhaps that is wishful thinking in a world of Covid. Regardless, I am a fan!! Excited for more for sure.
