Andy and Michael: The Experiment Continues

I started off with a rant about Frontier Communications – and their inept handling of the transition from Verizon to their company. We used to get all of our services from Verizon Fios: TV, internet, phones. Now it’s all Frontier, and the transition has been a disaster!

Next, we get into a conversation about the human microbiome and the company Mother Dirt. Interestingly enough, their founder and chief scientist hasn’t taken a shower (or bath) in fourteen years! Yikes!
