Married Mac Geeks Under the Influence episode 4

As promised we are on a regular every other week schedule that we plan to continue! We worked on some more audio issues but the stereo issue persists... I'm going to reach out to my audiophiles to figure out what I need to change in Garageband to make that stop. So for now, enjoy us in stereo :-/ Today's drink is actually a shooter called the "screw me sideways". A 3 ounce shooter that is once ounce Jagermeister, an ounce Pama Liquor and an ounce of cranberry juice.

 Topics include:

 Also it was pointed out to me that I should mention that this podcast is marked explicit (shocker?) in iTunes. Some were unable to find it in the iTunes store but found it the way of our blog which is just the feeder to iTunes.
