Talking Paragraphs Podcast No. 114: Shower spiders are scary and Chik-fil-A’s new cauliflower sandwitch

A grump middle school teacher and his friend, “the mouthpiece for Big Ag,” discuss the important issue of the day, including:

  1. Shower spiders are scary. Like so scary. Am I right? The scariest.
  2. Super Bowl. Kansas City won. The grass was messy.
  3. Tyler doesn’t understand how we survived school without snacks. I don’t know either. We were at least dehydrated. These kids will live forever.
  4. Much later, we discuss an experimental Chik-fil-A fried cauliflower sandwich, that will not be in Iowa and therefore is unimportant.
  5. Please donate. This takes a lot of time to make.
