Darrin shows off this green thumb and brought in some home grown ghost peppers. Against all medical advice, everyone in the studio ate a pepper…We will warn you…It is great video, but some less than ideal podcast audio. Make sure you watch the Facebook or YouTube video for the full experience.
Finally, the guys try to get through a conversation about the US Senate race…And then Jeremiah got the sad idea to eat another pepper. That pretty much ended things. This one is memorable.
