This week, the bearded duo once again dig into the depths of the mailbag to answer listener questions, comments and concerns. Topics range from the frivolous (favorite vegan bands, pet peeves) to the serious (thoughts on no kill shelters and whether bringing a child into the world can be ethical or altruistic) and everything in between! Plus, Paul and Andy announce their plans for their annual winter break, which is taking a different shape this year.
