Please include trigger warnings with stories about harm to animals

Hello! I have been listening to your pod and typically really enjoy it! However, I am a huge animal lover and advocate and pretty sensitive to content regarding harm to animals. Despite turning off the pod as soon as you started to discuss the incident, what you were talking about still really bothered me for quite some time. If I had known this content was a part of the episode I would’ve skipped this week gladly and come back next. Thank you for your consideration!

Can apology?

Is mike willing to “talk it out” with cam after how he treated him about his disease on the show? I know we all make mistakes but what shows someone’s real colors is if they’re willing to own up to that and learn to be better…

Evan Bass episode
