    I just recently listened to this post this past weekend and then I saw this pizza oven for $99 at World Market and thought of you two wanting a pizza oven in your back yard. It’s definitely not as fancy as one you would have made but a lot cheaper and I’m sure it would get the job done!

    I’m loving your podcasts. I’m about to listen to episode 1 (listening to them backwards..) and I’m sad that I’m caught up and can’t binge them. Looking forward to your next aired episode though!
