Gross Income (LIVE Episode 100 from the NerdMelt Showroom)

A very special 100th episode of We Have Concerns, recorded in front of a live audience at the Nerdmelt Showroom in Los Angeles!  Anthony and Jeff discuss the potential to sell your feces to science for use in treating patients with C diff.  Donors can earn up to $13,000 per year for their excrement, but the standards are quite high for what constitutes sellable poop.

Special thanks to Christian Spicer and Punchclub Sketch Comedy for inviting We Have Concerns to be a part of this live event, and Ryan Kolak for recording video.  More Details/Download MP3 →
