What else has been going on -

We've been on a binge recently watching a lot of crime/action movies that are based on real life events. Movies like War Dogs or The Big Short which are all pretty entertaining in their own ways.

Ep. 91 Off the rails BONUS

Welcome to the bench! We write on the bench, we snack with a Swedish accent on the bench (for you #Hammer), and we procrastinate on the bench. Today we didn’t really write, we more did that silly thing you do when you talk and show people pictures on a podcast… that’s why this is a bonus episode! Siana says it’s “the worst audio ever.” Enjoy.
