Thought I was going to let the naming scheme go so quickly? Pssh. This is all I got.

Wait...wait...you mean to tell me that for an entire episode Chris and Jon actually talked about MMA and BJJ? Not movies or porn or food? I don't...I don't even know...what's the point...
With added thanks to listener Nick Palmer for helping the conversation.
