Episode Description

Jeff Brownson returns to discuss spending a month remote schooling with his wife and children in Mexico this past September. We discuss why they decided to “study abroad” for awhile, Chichen Itza, scuba diving, hurricanes, and how a covid scare almost stranded Jeff in Mexico (spoiler alert: he’s fine).
