Along the way they also discuss Mrs. Kopicky’s caramel popcorn balls, Wolf of Wall Street, Kenny T, forgetting you’ve told a story before, forgetting you’ve told a story before, recurring nightmares, bending but not breaking, the zeta of teaching, Royale with Cheese, necessary roughness, authoritative parenting, shotgunning Pixie Stix, feelings integers, and if ain’t Baroque.
