This week Silvija Ozols joins Adam and Ramsey to talk about FISH! There's an awful lot of talk about different ways to prepare fish, and also some racist comments are made about the species. If you are offended, we apologize, but mostly we are interested in determining how you, as a fish, learned how to listen to a podcast. (sorry)

Okay, so if you're a fan of "Wonderful, Thanks" you're going to like this show because it is an episode of that. However, if you don't like "Wonderful, Thanks," then you are in luck, because this episode is different from any other one we've done. This week, Mike Sacks, author of "And Here's the Kicker," "Your Wildest Dreams, Within Reason," and co-author of "Sex: Our Bodies, Our Junk," joins Adam and Ramsey to talk about AUTHORITY. But instead of that, you get to hear all about Mike's very long and very storied career and you get introduced to a new game!

Today we have the super talented and crazy funny Brandon Scott Jones on the podcast to talk about the word "fire!"

It's a Win/Win, like in that movie, "50/50!"
