The pee themed title of this episode is brought to you by this week's guest, Master Cicerone Brian Reed. He joins Steve and Adam in the world of Dry January. That's right those two dunces invited one of the most knowledgeable beer minds on to not talk about beer. Instead they'll be profiling and reviewing sandwiches. They do learn a lot of about the Cicerone program, the education that goes into it, and how it was adapted for 2020. Then it's a gentlemanly debate about what is a sandwich and is Jaws a horror film. Finally it all comes together in a horror movie-sandwich quiz that cannot be duplicated or disassembled.
