Ep 131 You Sure About That?
Are you sure you have the full picture on that player? Are you sure there's not details missing from that narrative? Are you sure there aren't logical inconsistancies in those assumptions? Are you sure you don't want to listen to this entire episode? Are you sure you don't want to join a FusionFlex charity league? All that and more, probably, maybe, but you'll have to listen to be sure.
