Ep 80 – Covert Cupid 2017

If you had forgotten Covert Cupid… damn, then we could’ve gotten away not hosting it and you wouldn’t have been the wiser.

But traditions don’t become traditions unless you keep participating, and since we’re working on making this a tradition that’s going to last…here we are.

It’s like looking down at a heart-shaped box of chocolates where there’s no key in sight and you’re just hoping with all you’ve got that you pick good flavors, knowing full well you’ve got to smile your way through whatever orange creme-filled nightmare you happen to actually get.

So join us this week for our big reveals, not safe for work language and situations, and more importantly…NO APOLOGIES.

Ep 73 – Take a Bite of the Silver Sandwich

But the fact remains that even the darkest clouds have slivers of silver…somewhere. The trick is knowing where to look.

So join the Foxes this week as they go off in search of the best, brightest, and silverest that 2016 had to offer.
