ATR #32: #NoShameNovember

That Guy Named John is joined by Steve and Dr. Andy as they take comfort in the safe space of the studio and talk about movies, TV shows, or music that we find ourselves having to explain to people why we like them, all the while taking no shame in liking them.

This episode is a play on the “#NoShaveNovember” craze, and instead of not shaving, we are not feeling shame for the things we like, well, at least that is the plan, but the other guests might have differing opinions on those choices … Enjoy!
