Ever had to make a life changing decision immediately? We hear from two people who didn’t have a lot of time to make an important choice. First, Luke talks about finding himself face to face with someone from his past (who happens to be a member of his church). And then we hear from Jan, a sergeant in the NYPD, who had to bend the rules a bit to help someone in need (it involves a Winnie The Pooh Piglet doll). Also, The Bartender is going on tour with the comedy podcast Keith and The Girl in October!
