Authors in this EP:
This is a bonus episode recorded back in May of 2015. If you can fight through the bad audio quality, you can find some good discussions in here, including our top 5 album picks. Noah was host for this episode, though the recording issue was not his fault. There was a fatal error in our usual recording insturments and it was not noticed until the episode was done and post processing began... we apologize for the quality, but wanted to salvage what we could and get this out to you anyways. FIGHT THROUGH IT IF YOU CAN! (if you can't... i wont blame you in the slightest. lol) - Dave
