Baumann and Burch, Episode 22: God Creates Man, Man Bemoans Fortune

Are you breaking up with someone right now? Neither are we, but that didn’t stop us from running a break-up song bracket. Find out why we couldn’t actually finish the bracket, why we disagree vehemently about which is the superior “Ne me quitte pas,” and what each of us would put in our ten-song breakup playlist. You oughta know (what’s in this podcast).
