Finally, Britt calls in asking if the guys have ever had to participate in corporate “spirit days,” and she ends asking would they rather read people’s minds or move objects with their minds.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Life Is Short(er): RIP Pee-wee, Manatee Penis, and Whistle Pigs 🥩

The guys discuss the sad passing and the legacy of Pee-wee Herman (aka Paul Reubens), who was a huge influence on their childhood. Justin shares the hilarious People article with a headline about how he and Kate ate rancid meat (slow news day much?), then he brings us a disturbing story about manatee behavior. We read a letter from Becky in Michigan who has a possible solution for Justin’s groundhog (aka whistle pig) problem. Finally, we hear a voicemail from Amy about how Christian is actually not a Millennial and she ends with a truly disgusting WYR about farts (that might end up in People Magazine).

We read a letter from Courtney about that one time Justin touched her shoulder after Seminar on Broadway, plus she offers a WYR about whether they’d want to receive a compliment a day or a bit of helpful feedback a day. Finally, we hear a voicemail from Zaira full of compliments and a WYR about having long toe nails vs finger nails.

Life Is Short(er): Letting Go, Elder Abuse, and TJ’s Insider 🐄
