My Thoughts: Epic 4.5 hour podcast. The guys eat cheese, drink a lot of wine, and smoke marijuana cigarettes. Not a whole lot of talk about the fights they’re (not really) watching. They talk over one another quite a bit, especially towards the end, and it can get kind of annoying. Lots of hunting and animal talk and they watch videos of animals killing each other. Eddie, of course, brings up conspiracy theories.
