BE 03: Not All Plants are Kind

Unfortunately, my lovey bride was attacked by Mother Nature in the form of poison ivy. Apparently, Lori is extremely allergic to it and has been suffering for days with horrendous outbreaks and rashes. Although we have show notes ready to go, I had to play the "husband" card and tell her that we weren't doing a show with her being in such bad shape. As a result, we'll be releasing Episode 50 over the July 4th weekend, which is also the 1 year anniversary of the podcast!
