Episode 8

This episode is a little different. This week, Craig was interviewed on ‘The Daily Talk Show’ with Tommy and Josh and it was so much fun and there were so many broadly-relevant topics covered that we’ve decided to share it here through our (You Project) platform. Instead of Craig asking the questions, this episode he is in ‘answering’ mode. *Warning: this episode is particularly swear-y. So, it won’t be suitable for everyone.
