Episode 235: The Saga Of DJ Baby T-Rex

Emily joins Brent, Rob, and Gabe on this episode and they happen to record on April 1, so a good bit of April fooling takes place.  Rob creates a new character named DJ Baby T-Rex, a radio disc jockey who had a thriving on-air career but eventually moves on to other things.  It’s kind of a saga actually.  A legendary saga.  And Brent beatboxes at one point, by the way.  Full track listing below.
