Luke and Gomer became friends Freshman year at the Franciscan University of Steubenville and 14 years later they started a podcast. The show oscillates between a conversation between just the two of us and interviews that we do together of other, fancier people. Sometimes we get explicit either by being too honest or by being too stupid. Either way, it's fun!

Gomer and Luke talk DIVE BARS because we are going to do our first MEET UP of 2019 after tonight's SEEK Conference lineup at Dugout Bar, Indianapolis's best dive bar.

christmas, maturity, new years, puberty
Technically, Luke never vomited, but it sounded funnier in the title. Sorry if this episode sucks. We literally only had 40 minutes in the middle of the day to record, at our respective in-laws' houses, without our usual recording equipment. Total fail on my part. I HAD TO EDIT THIS ON AN 8-YEAR-OLD iMAC WITH GARAGEBAND!!!!
