E257 – David Robinson

today in the studio: David Robinson, Ph.D. of OHSU’s neuroscience graduate program!  Not sure how that relates to our show…  however, he has done some interesting things as he adventures in and out of the city.

also in studio are donor Todd the Truck Driver & new PDX resident Sydney!

Thanks to our beverage sponsor, The Beer Mongers, and, as always, thanks to our generous Patreon donors that keep us going!

Also: Aaron buys a new bike, and Brock goes on a wine tour during #soberseptember.
