Ep. Music: The Stickers, “Countrified”

00:54 Opening… John and… hmmm… Tasha??? We have substitutes all around the studio on this episode

We have a YaJagoff Comedy Show coming up at the Arcade Comedy Theater, April 8, 8pm. BYOB!

The 1st floor is “revel,” i.e, get crazy

The 2nd floor is Roost, a little more formal dining.

Bacon, scallops, bacon wrapped AROUND scallops + dessert!

14:15 Pt 1 of our interview with the Mayor of Braddock, PA and candidate for Pennsylvania U.S. Senator, John Fetterman

We hung out in John’s living room and he couldn’t have been more genuine and kind. Even when one of Craig’s kids fell and hurt his knee! Helped us talk about healthcare!

We talked about what he thinks, his private life and how he’s continuously energized vs. tiring out on the campaign trail
