This is without a doubt, our cheesiest episode to date.
We sip on an episode cocktail that’s a true classic, one that’s as old as cocktails themselves. Turns out we love whiskey as much today as they did in the 1830s. Cheers y’all, to whiskey!
Also covered: The West Wing, the Obama’s virtual “Big Block of Cheese Day”, Tux’s childhood fear of getting dirty, Stephanie’s mother’s pettiness, the fallacy of “identity politics”, & our desire to visit Dollywood.
