Thank you Brokelyn for naming us one of the 10 best podcasts in NYC!

In this Episode:

Sally, generally a very risk averse person, was pressured into white water rafting. It turns out there’s a reason Sally should not go white water rafting. Then Tyler joins The Bartender to talk about an unexpected adventure that ended in a skydiving trip. The skydiving wasn’t nearly as exciting as what happened a few hours before.

The universe works in mysterious ways. Just ask Rosa. In a single night, Rosa was able to overcome feelings about something from her past, impress an idol, and get some sweet, sweet action. She also blows The Bartender’s mind when Rosa’s story ties into something very intimate about Katharine.
