Everything Is A Bitch Episode Two: Dino Heart Sassie

AJ and Ago are back with their second effort to deliver a real podcast. We've fired the landscaper and sent the dogs to behavioral therapy so we're hoping this passes inspection from the FIAB content police.

We discover that neither of us are familiar with any of the "Hollywood Stars" taking part in the TMZ Summer Swimsuit Challenge. We discuss an article claiming the Flintstones may have damaged us as kids and Ago has a Flintstones flashback plus lots of other stupidity from 50 year pals.
