What’s this podcast all about? Well everything important. And nothing in particular. In between all that, we solve world problems. Micromanage each other’s personal lives. Tell stories. Riff on social and cultural happenings. Predict the future. Mock ignorance wherever we find it. And generally rant, rave and question the things you’re not supposed to talk about in “polite circles” – especially politics, sex, and religion. After seven years of having coffee and great conversations every Friday morning, we thought you might enjoy our chats as much as we did, so we decided to launch this podcast! Join us for an always authentic, hopefully enlightening and entertaining conversation.

Carl and Mike discuss their love hate relationship with food, exercise and being healthy. Talk about how to create new healthy habits and devise a plan for healthy living. They end the conversation with thoughts about smoking and when would be a good time to start. Leave your sense of direction at the door, it’s time for Carl and Mike.
