Episode 05: Good Words and Bad Words

"Suck it, F.J."

Good day, and welcome to the fifth installment of J&J!! Today's episode is largely an awkward conversation on cursing where Joel & Jon openly admit that they are their own biggest fans. Later, Jon conjectures on the future of online shopping and "showrooming", while Joel talks about how he uses anime as a form of exercise role-play. And then it's on to home-made ginger ale recipes and American comfort food.

Will Jon be able to edit out all those dirty, naughty words? Will Joel ever get to watch 'The Fast & the Furious 7'? Find out with little risk to your life, in this week's episode!!
