Special guests Ada Cheng and Holly Link join the regular cast. We have a five-story two-hour journey, with music. It's a cliche, but it's true: The hardest lessons make the most incredible stories, so please don't let those experiences be in vain, listen to a very cool show.

Mark Maguire follows at 1:03:35 and relates not only a hard lesson learned story, but an easy lesson learned as well.
Regular cast member Doug Stevenson was scheduled for this show but called in sick at the last minute. He's in every podcast we do with this rare exception.
