This time, we recorded at The Bread of Life Deli, in Meridian, Idaho (we interviewed the owner, Cameron McCown in episode 2).  As usual, we cover lots of topics: Crash-test Craig describes his latest crash (pictures on our Facebook page); Avett Bothers and a bass player's pick, struggles with perfectionism, gratitude for marriage, and fantasy football (which may threaten said marriage).

Also in this episode, we introduce Lisa Ann Stauffer, a new (temporary?) member of the podcast team.  She has some strong feelings you'll discover when we come to the Two Minute Warning.  When you hear the whistle blow, you know we've come to the two-minute warning, then you'll hear Lisa push us into overtime.

The music for today's episode comes from Craig's rehabilitation playlist.  Craig's been looking for inspirational and motivational music of the theme "I fell down, but I'm getting back up." We'll hear Andra Day sing Rise Up; Switchfoot's Black Horses; the awesome genre bending Jewish Reggae Rapper Matisyahu on Watch the Walls Melt Down, and Trip Lee's I'm Good.
