Episode 16 of the Podcast – Who Gives A Schmidt? – Show Notes

Episode 16 Topic List

Date: Friday 21st 8EST

Roster: Steven Callas, Gonzopooper, Kaiser, Ron and Agrippa. This episode was recorded earlier than usual because Steven would have been traveling to Greece during our regular recording. This being the age of the Geek, he will likely be on the podcast from Greece in the following episodes though he is gone for 2 weeks. Our topics were lighter on the news this week and we get to talk, as usual, as if we know what the h-e-(double hockey sticks) we are talking about… gosh darn it. Give the episode a Listen.
