So drop by and sit a spell. When we're done talking, we'll mosey on outside to The Front Porch to enjoy the cocktail of the week. xo Rick, Dan, and George (and our producer Jake!)

We planned to discuss North Carolina’s 11th District U.S Representative, Madison Cawthorn, but that conversation got pushed a bit after the latest school shooting in Uvalde, TX. Eventually we do get around to little Maddie, but this episode is, shall we say, a very passionate one.
