Episode 11-4 Podcastiversary 2!

episode_artwork104

It’s been (ITS BEEN) TWO YEARS of the podcast, so it’s time for another celebration! But didn’t you just celebrate 100 episodes? We did! Who cares!

Rob and Pernell pick their top 5 songs of the past year, pop bottles, laugh uncontrollably at Pernell’s fake curse-words, and discover that Andore is the Sorting-Hat of the Mad Gear gang. Thanks to a gift from a special listener, things go a little off the rails.
