Happy Birthday Who Cares on Smash Notes

Happy Birthday Who Cares podcast.

December 28, 2019

Valerie was born on October 1st. So was Randall. Happy birthday! Who cares?

Every week, we pick an event that occurred on our special day, and then talk about something that’s almost not at all related to that. Maybe you’ll learn something or maybe you’ll just listen to us laugh about nothing. It’s our birthday, so have a piece of cake or whatever.
