Our favorite shop owners come back home to AID after a wild 100 episodes that find them one location short since the last time we recorded an episode. What were the first red flags that led the duo to shut down and pack up and after six years in the game what has gotten easier, what's gotten harder and what just seems to stay the same?
We explore the many looks of Mike Mitchell and how he came up with the concept of allowing himself to explore the same topics over and over again. Feeling free by having different styles for different days and different emotions. How we both envy people that have time to wait in line. Lastly the squirrel that crossed his path! Plus another round of MondoCon Hire, Fire and Retire.
