You asked and Tim delivers, Brian Wenning is the guest on this week’s show.
And, as is only fitting when Wenning is involved, this episode is a bit more jenky than the first two – let’s thank beer and a history of drug abuse for that. Try and follow along as Tim gets Brian to talk about getting kicked off of Plan B, stealing Xanax from Antwuan Dixon, and innovating the mid-ledge pop-out.
Don’t forget to check the timeline, submitted questions, and mentioned links below the stream.
And keep sending emails to [email protected] so that Tim doesn’t run out of things to talk about – as if that would ever be a problem for him.
