Youtube! Married life! Daddy duties! I got a hold of my long time friend Andrew Bonaparte to figure out how he's getting it all done.

And I get to finally …

2020 was one hell of a year. On January 1st, none of us could have imagined that a pandemic would completely change the way we interacted with one another and that our government would be so very bad at managing it.

Sex is the elephant in the room that most people can’t stop thinking about but also which most of us have no good language to discuss.
