Every show has a theme, and after your two favorite Weekend Warriors took a week off from podcasting, they’ve had a lot to think about. It’s no surprise, then, that the theme of this episode is thinking. When is thinking good, and when is it bad? How many gigs is too many, and what should you be thinking about during, before, and after each one?
