Before you take a listen, you'll hear Marita chatting about her high school experience before the episode begins. This was suppose to be a level check. That's what working with Marita is like for Dan. Anyways, in episode 48 Dan explains how he was in not one but TWO marriage pacts. Do you think you could go through with one?

Why are we here?
