My Thoughts: Joe got drunk and high and recorded a short 40 minute podcast/ad read with Jamie after Doug left. It’s not on YouTube so you’ll have to download the MP3 from iTunes, your favorite Android podcast program, or using the direct link below. This short podcast with Jamie is at the beginning of the episode though it was recorded after Doug left.
The podcast with Joe and Doug is great. Just two guys hanging out, talking, and drinking. Listen to it.
