My brother Joe is back on the podcast. We drank whiskey and I fed him a delicious elk loin steak (backstrap) and he admitted he liked it even though I reverse seared it. We also told a bunch of stories from when we were kids, including him correcting me on the story of him lighting a fart on fire that shot a flame four feet high. Other topics: ABS and traction control keep teens from learning how to drive, the neighborhood boys, snow is crazy in Sioux Falls, modern cars confuse us, being gamer dads, Joe likes Fortnite, Andy likes Rocket League, church pastors who are interesting, guns we wish we never sold, nerdy shooting stuff.
