Season 2 - Ep. 22: Holiday Stemcellebration

Jim, Brent, Puckett and Matt (with people who's names I have forgotten. Sorry) talk about stuff. I'll be honest, I forgot to take show notes again. Also, I work retail and it's holiday time, which is why this is late again. Plus I'm sick. Get off my case, you're not my real dad. God.

For those of you reading this on an ipod or something that shows the description while you listen, here's a gift from me to you:
