They talk a bit about the electoral college vote and spend time harassing Nick for being a millennial. (It’s not his fault, guys.)

Lou and Chief talk some Turkey before inviting John Guidos, COO and co-founder of TurboAppeal on the show to dissect the new company aimed, “To help homeowners lower tax bills, reduce fees and simplify the property tax appeals process.”

We round out the show by talking about Russia’s Olympic team, mainly their possible ban from this year’s Summer Olympics- and of course some predictions on Donald Trump’s RNC speech, tonight.
