Jon and Sebastian talk some NFL and Panthers football, as well as the proper use of firewood for s’mores. They then discuss some competition for the “Country-ish” show name from Netflix and their upcoming reality show. Then, it’s “Jon’s Journal” where Jon reads a letter from another one of his penpals in Russia. After that, it’s time for Reno Collier – one of Jon’s favorite funny people – to join by Zoom to discuss his early days in comedy, his influences, and some wild nights in Birmingham. Jon and Sebastian have some listener gifts to open, and then they end the show with “Small Town News” with a story about a goat that takes over a police car and eats a whole bunch of paperwork. This is one Billy Bad-Ass episode!
