Episode 23:

This week we dedicate the entire episode towards a topic very near-and-dear to us: Jack. The show begins with Gavin retelling an anecdote about why Jack is the issue this week. The gang is joined by Jack’s high school role model, Louie, who comments on Jack’s personal growth throughout the years. Later on, friend-of-the-show Jenny drops by the studio and talks about what she likes (and dislikes) about the self-proclaimed International Love Guru.

Afterwards, Jack interviews Jenny to gain a deeper understanding of the female psyche when it comes to dating and relationships.

Loose Ends

After doing some research, there seems to be a general consensus that taxes are not included on price tags. This is especially important for large companies which try to remain transparent when they are being audited. Furthermore different states/provinces have differing taxes, so it is easier to simply say $10.99 + tax.
