    -Jill gives explicit directions on what to do with her body when she passes: Phish Food

    - The Utes are set to appear in the Rose Bowl, which we expect the Utes to lead all the way through the game and to not run out of gas in the second half and for their depleted secondary (including a running back playing corner) to hold up and to totally keep Ohio State's future first-round draft pick stud receiver in check, pulling out a thrilling and satisfying, program-defining victory! But it's only January 31 so we don't know what will happen tomorrow

Down to Earth and Fun

I always enjoy whenever a new episode drops. I can't wait for them to get back in the same room again and can't help but laugh along with them.
Hope there's more for years to come

Great but needs more Utah content

It's a really great podcast, but I like it more when then focus on Utah-specific content. One example of something very good in this regard was Jake mentioning the best pie place in St. George that helped him out. Curtis' legislative reviews are great, as is Utah sports coverage. Its trajectory is to be a great podcast about Utah life. Keep that up!
