Episode 57 Show Notes

Thank you for joining us for the WLD 057. In this episode we’ll be discussing the strongest fish and chips ever, a mystery story, and we’re giving one of our listeners a sonic foamer, whether they want one or not. So crack open your beer, uncork that wine, and let’s get drinking.

  • Welcome to episode 57, drinkers. Before we get started with the show I have a request. If you have an opinion on our podcast, we want to hear about it. So, please, take a few minutes to let us know what you think by leaving us a review on iTunes. It’s the best way to share what you think of what we do with others, and your reviews help other drinkers find our show so they can join in on the chaos. Thank you in advance for your continued support and assistance, now with that out of the way, let’s find out who we’re drinking with tonight.
