Ep. 90: 2020-2021 Wrap Up w/ Brianna, Carl, And Tom

In this episode, I chat with previous guests Brianna Hodges, Carl Hooker, and Thomas Murray. We each have chicken wings and the same 5 sauces. After asking each of my 5 questions, we douse a wing with a specific hot sauce and answer in a round table manner. As we go through each question, the sauces get a bit hotter. This is a great conversation that could have gone for a lot longer than it actually did. This has been an interesting school year that taught us MANY things and this is exactly what we cover. Buen provecho!
