Now he’s the host of two great podcasts, The Political Orphanage, a podcast for people who want to know about what’s going on in the world, but don’t want to become a part of the partisan brick-throwing contest, and Alienating the Audience, where he does a deep dive on movies, TV and general geekery. But I’m talking to Andrew about the day several years ago when he was guilty of unintentional international gun smuggling.
