Episode #160: The Jesse Owens Rule

Saturday, January 30th, 2016

We fight back against winter with another mixture of our favorite music and chat that we made up as we went along, like we always do. Music old and new (more old than new), several genres, and for once it’s all in English. Plus Rebecca explains why she won’t be correcting you when you say stupid things in public. All this and more in this brand new-to-you episode! Please download it and listen, otherwise we’ve done all this for naught.
