We often run into each other without expecting it and then end up chatting for a long time, about Orlando generally, and specifically about our places in it. This time we met on purpose on a rainy morning at P is for Pie.
I'm just going to say that P is for Pie is one of my FAVORITE stops in the morning. Their hand-pies are second to none and the Stumptown coffee is always ready and always perfect. They open at 7:30 and sometimes I'm first in the door.
What can I say about Ryan Rivas that hasn't been said? Oh so much...but he does a pretty good job of sharing his own stories during this episode. Ladies and gentlemen, listen in to our conversation as we discuss, among other things, canine masturbation and our personal flags.

It really made me feel vulnerable, which is good, but also which is very scary. To sum up, in case you don't want to listen for it, I stand for love.
