This week Dave and Steel are joined by one of their oldest friends, Mark Eliason. Together the three of them discuss Mark’s untreated tuberculosis, wow each other with some great small talk topics ($100,000 trash men, the long history of professional farting, and intermodal freight transport), ask Mark a bunch of questions about Bane & Company, his three advanced degrees, and his longstanding love affair with Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen, Jr., play six songs by U2, and hear some Wright brothers inspired book wisdom from David McCullogh’s biography of the aviation pioneers.
A list of great lives felled by tuberculosis.
- $100,000 Garbage Men [Dave]
- The long, long history of professional farters, and how Youtube is destroying the ancient tradition [Steel].
- Intermodal Freight Transport [Mark]
