Ep. 145 || Unfiltered talk about covid-19, mask mandates, and more
Sometimes you need a space to just get everything off your chest. That is what this episode was for Ben & Jason. This episode was recorded after the governing bodies of two local counties were angrily confronted by anti-maskers. We debrief some of their comments and offer our own opinions on current events.Gear up for some seriously unfiltered conversation. We let it all out there and you're left to sort it together and make sense of it. Have fun with that ;-)--You'll hear stories about real people who have dealt with depression, anxiety, addiction, self-doubt, or any other struggle they've faced on their journey through life.
