 PARADIO143Getting kicked in the balls. 

Broing out hard.  This week, the fellas take a reflective look back at their most and least favorite moments of life on the road.  Sprinkle in a few dozen cheesesteaks and approximately 1000 liters of beer and you have the makings of some unbelievable memories not to mention a serious gut bomb.  Hear about the shenanigans that resulted from all our World Domination travels.

When you’re a small company, you skimp on the airline and splurge on the steak.  You also tend to give zero fucks about some seminar attendees with terrible attitudes.  Hint hint, wink wink.  So, I encourage everyone to sit back, relax and relive some of the most interesting and surprising adventures with John, Luke, and Tex.

    Salt Lick in Round Rock is good but nothing beats Driftwood.

    I believe the guy that told John he had small calves deserves an honorable mention.

    Awesome episode. Love that story of the guy who left the cert and came back at the end to collect his certification.

    Have to agree about UK breakfasts. Having visited the US (California) for the first time last year from Scotland, the breakfast options/portion size you guys have is epic.
    Only thing I would miss if I lived over there is Stornoway Black Pudding!!

    Even though I’ve heard similar horror stories re: worst Cert attendees, these never fail to shock. Makes you wonder what folks are thinking when they sign up for this stuff.
