This is a free show, and it was such a blast to hang out with my best friend, and you can just shut up! Sorry….I really lost control there. ANYway, this Zoom hang with my friend was MUCH needed back in May when it happened, much needed now, and at VERY least, was really fun for me to sit down and edit and listen to again. You know what I mean? Some friends just make ya feel good! As soon as you’re done here, go try and find videos of Jake playing, and then follow him on IG (@jacobharpster).
