Sorry my end of the audio is terrible in this episode. No idea what happened, but you're really here for the elite guest anyways. The much anticipated moment you didn't know you were dying for has arrived as Uncle Chaps joins the podcast for episode 40. Unlike any other figure we've had on the show so far, Chaps holds a unique place in our space but one that I view is essential. Whether it's the persistent joking, revealing of others' deeper personas or the fake reporting, Chaps has done it all. Yet, that's just the surface level of the beautiful human being that is Uncle Chaps and the story he has to tell. Highlights from this episode include: - The parts of Chaps' past you might not know about and where his life was headed prior to serving in the military. - The relationship Chaps developed with his on-duty dog in combat and what that meant to him. - How Chaps first started the fake account venture and how he's not sure when it got so big that he Chaps'd ESPN and NFL Network. - Having fun with your pals online and not understanding the people who are always mad. - What's next for Chaps, not just as a joker but perhaps ventures as a true writer.
