We took a "brief" hiatus, but we couldn't stay away. Literally, we were chatting with a girl, knew we had to record, and so did. And this episode on home was born. We've been brewing this episode for a while, as we've been finding and building our own homes after graduating. The top of the show is on our childhood homes, home ownership and communes, buying a first home, and making your own homes.

Music from this show: Sweet Home Alabama (Lynyrd Skynyrd), She's Leaving Home (The Beatles), That's My Home (Louis Prima), Homeward Bound (Simon & Garfunkel), and Dusty Turnaround (Lizzie West).
