Talkin’ Schmit Ep. 45: Darren Navarrette

Day after Rumble in Ramona 9, I stopped by the aftermath of the vertical gathering and talked my old friend Navarrette into doing a podcast. A few bloody marys, DJ Cranny, a Skipper cameo, and batting practice all went down as Dave Reul crooned away. Needless to say there’s a lot going on here but it’s always a great time conversing with my bro. Thanks again Darren, nothing but love and respect for you.
