The Five Count Gets Funky For Mother’s Day…

We got funky for Mother’s Day for this installment of The Five Count. During the show we complained about how society assumes most men don’t do laundry and dishes, Dustin was shamed for the lack of beef in his diet, and we discussed the likelihood that Ton could be in your mom’s bedroom right now. He’s the Wayne Newton of public radio!
