Hi Clay, Thank you so much for wiring back. I’m listening to your “Are you freaking out about something”, and I sure am haha!

today! Was listening to your episode on "Is Unsolicited advice playing God?" where you asked if you're psychotic to not get Don Francisco's Hazelnut because it's so good, and it cracked me up. I just bought their Cinnamon Hazelnut last week because of you. It's pretty good but I think I need the French Roast mixed in there to really feel the power you speak up.
