*** Special thanks to our friend Carl of the Recovery Room Podcast for hosting us last week on his show last week. ***

OF COURSE we’re still here.

We’ve been planning and scheming for the next chapter in our quest for world-hummus domination.

In this episode, we discuss the recent legislation passed in North Carolina that redefines marriage as well as the groundswell of support created from Facebook’s promotion of organ donation.
