We Struggle With Beers and Polls

June 29, 2017

In this week's episode, the beer doesn't give us as clean a slate as we'd hoped (00:20) and Cal rants about NBC's nonsense (05:45). We also talk about playoff spots in the fantasy league (22:15) and then Cal rants some more. To be honest, this episode is just a lot of Cal talking while Wink and Whale played on their phones. Enjoy!
