This Episode Has No Title Episode #86

WARNING!

This episode of Hobbies Up To Here is unfiltered, barely edited, and very, very real. My mom and I sat down after numerous failed attempts to record an episode and what we created is hilarious and very all-over-the-place. We jumped from topic to topic, occasionally forget what we were talking about, and we even get interrupted.

Nevertheless, it’s us. All ADD and distractible.
