Happy Holidays good people!

In this episode I sit down with my younger sister Delilah to play New York Said Shuffle. NYS Shuffle is a Q&A game that allows me to ask my guests an assortment of question in a less linear way.

In this episode Delilah and I talk about tasty alcoholic beverages, fun with the family dog, growing up as siblings, becoming a dialysis technician, eating healthy and love in your twenties.
