Our guest this week is Luke Barats and he will leave you behind if you break your leg and is the only guy I know who genuinely loves MREs. Did you know some come with Skittles?! We both realize as city dwellers we are not prepared for bio-terrorism and Deep Impact comes up again two episodes in a row but I personally think Luke doesn't realize how un-meantally prepared he is for an asteroid and that neither of us are prepared for the majesty that are Elijah Wood's eyes. Enjoy the show! Don't forget to find us on Facebook and tell your friends! It's not "if" but "when"!
