40 - Eggs, Oatmeal and More!

Hello you wonderful people! Most of the material for this episode was for the would be episode of a month or so ago, so the news is a bit dated. We do throw in some recent news to balance it off!

Someday, somehow there will be a return of the weekly format. I swear it*.

*Swears are not guaranteed by the UnP crew.
