Skunked

Candy tries the impossible: discussing The Mandalorian with a non Star Wars fan. Eugene explores the outdoors in the time of quarantine. Other topics include turning to familiar food, looking for rice and comfort tv.

You can tell when Candy edits the audio for an episode because she likes using sound effects with Eugene's banjo stylings. Thank you for listening!
