Team PHenomal Hope Beer and Bites Event from the Rex Theater

This was fun! Despite what you hear on the podcast, we DID NOT really get kicked out of the Rex Theater. It turned out to be perfect weather and perfect atmosphere to record this episode while standing outside on Carson Street in front of The Rex Theater. We learned about Pulmonary Hypertension, what Team PHenomenal Hope is doing to raise money for it, we talked local breweries (since this was a beer event) and ya gotta hear about the SWITCHEROO!! Oh… and a dog pooped right next to our podcast table!
