15. What is Mormonism?
We're bringing things back to our old ways this episode as Teddy asks David all the probing questions about growing up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, aka Mormonism. Do we get off topic talking about reality TV? Yes. Do we go on a tangent about the Boy Scouts of America? Yes. Is David spilling all the Mormon tea? Definitely. (Although Mormons can't drink tea, so......) Strap in ya'll it's gonna get weird.

12. What is music production? with Andrew Heringer
In this episode, we sit down with the ever so talented, ever so humble, and ever so chill music producer/songwriter Andrew Heringer. You may have heard his music with the band Milo Greene, The Guest and the Host, his ambient sound project Soundbath, or heard his tracks on popular shows like Grey's Anatomy, Jane the Virgin, and iZombie, just to name a few. Andrew also mixed and mastered Ranked: a concept album! We discuss how the music industry operates, challenges and successes of songwriting and artistic collaboration during the pandemic, and we may have gotten a bit sidetracked trying to convince Teddy to record a song about the infamous Amazon sensation: the poop knife!

We made it! It's 2021 ya'll!! But.... why isn't everything magically better now? This episode is one enormous outtake from our NYE episode where we WENT OFF about immigration policies, the way Americans have bought into a culture of selfishness, and of course, the idiocy of our current Covid times. It's madness, so strap in everybody!
