What Concerns Brock Wilbur?
This double-length episode was recorded back in August of 2015, and was originally released as a Patron-only bonus episode.

In light of the recent attack in Colorado, Anthony and Jeff felt that more people should hear Brock's story. Brock is a stand-up comedian whose album can be found here: http://brockwilbur.net/album/nightmare-fuel [more]
