Joel and Shane deviate from the usual agenda to celebrate ABOG's 50th episode / two years. The guys pour a few beers and then reminisce about the first 49, history and favorite moments.

Includes fireside chats, childhood memories, gut checks, mic feedback, embarrassing moments, dumb people who say the Beatles are overrated and at least one lap full of beer. A more live and looser take than usual that beer was worn without interrupting the show. Pro move Shane!
