24 – We Physically Can And Virtually Run



This episode, [singing] “one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. Schlemiel! Schlimazel! Hasenpfeffer Incorporated!” As we channel our inner Laverne and Shirley and ride the assembly line, we speak with an aluminum angel who has a “can-do” attitude. Next, we run, eh, walk, possibly job, all over the world, virtually, and earn some sweet swag, literally, with a former couch potato. Finally, after joining a monastery to learn how monks brew, we vow to skip celibacy and drink Belgian style beers in this month’s BEER DOME! That, and our usual craic on this episode of Life in 16 oz.
