    On the 8/30/17 pod discussed what would have been his Mum's 90th birthday. His father stayed with him for 8 days as did app. 18 members of his family. For the 11th year in a row, Grandfather Davo called Davo's daughter, Ingrid "Greta" and she just laughs it off. Discussed the app. 14 hours that they spent in Las Vegas together and Davo stated that Las Vegas is certainly out of Rog's element. Rog stated that "Vegas Davo" is full on Ocean's Eleven Pesco (see above re: Pesco) Davo recommends going "in character" to Vegas (much like going in character to strip bars and weddings with people you do not like). Rog said Vegas is too "sensorarily overloading" the featured Raven discussed how one imagines the life of Davo.
    On the 9/12/17 pod Davo referenced his Davo answer of not wanting to think things too deeply ("that's the Davo answer") which then lead to a discussion of their other podcast "Keeping it Pesco" where Davo claimed that "not even Jason Kennedy listens to it" (app 9:50 mark) Rog claims he listens to it in the AM when he meditates in preparation for a bowel movement.
    On the 1/23/18 pod he and Rog disclosed Davo's life motto of "Don't be too good"

    on the 8/30/17 pod disclosed that he was heading back to Liverpool to celebrate his father, Judge Ivor Bennett's 80th birthday. Rog then discussed how he realized at age 13 that there are two types of men in the world "Pub guys" and "Club guys." The former are most comfrotable in smaller groups and happiness is just a great jukebox. The latter is never happier than when they are raging against the chaos of a fraternity party. Rog stated he was a Pub guy and Davo was a club guy. Davo asked to be both.
    on the 9/12/17 pod discussed his father Judge Iver becoming angrier and angrier at his 80th birthday dinner due to poor service. Leading Rog to try and calm him down. Rog was met with "I am who I am! and I can't change who I am Roger!" that lead Davo to call that the greatest lyric never written in a pop song -- "I am who I am! and I can't change who I am Roger!" that lead to a discussion of whether people can change as they get older.
