For episode 2, Tim drove his whole family straight from Arizona to Los Angeles so he could make it to Austyn Gillette’s house before he left to Coachella. Danny Garcia was there too, and the three former Habitat teammates talked about Street League, getting DUI’s on horseback and Brian Wenning losing his virginity.
We’ve gone and made it even easier for you to follow along too. Check the timeline, submitted questions, and mentioned links below the stream.
