FIXED IT! Toons’ St. Patrick’s Day Spectacular

NOTE: This is the audio-corrected version of the Toons episode from last week.

This episode of Toons w/ Jack and Brian is a mess. A hot, beautiful mess. The guys decide that, naturally, the best way to celebrate St. Patrick's Day is to do a drunk edition of Toons.

But Jack, Brian and Mart tackle the subject of Irish history, lore and tradition with all the grace and reverence that you would expect from them.........once they've imbibed heavily.
