IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE LOUNGE?!

Welp, this week there is! The guys are joined by author & historian, Dr. Megan Kate Nelson, to chat about the 150th anniversary of Yellowstone National Park, as well as its history! Megan is the author of "Saving Yellowstone: Exploration and Preservation in Reconstruction America."

From the get-go, the guys jump into why Yellowstone was the first national park and not one that was in the eastern portion of the United States?

What led her to want to be a historian, and when was the first time she was able to go to Yellowstone? What about her book? How long did it take to research and subsequently write it?

Megan is brilliant in her answers! She is well-versed in the history of exploration, the topography, and even humorous stories from the team's journey into the uncharted territory of what is now known as Yellowstone National Park!

Little Matt, like he often does, was searching things about Megan, and found an AWESOME bit of news, and it also sparked a conversation about our 26th president! Oh, the things Matt finds while searching things on the interweb!

Before they knew it, it was time to part ways, and the guys still had questions they wanted to ask! NOT TO WORRY, Megan agreed to come back in the future to chat about her other books, as well as to hang out in the Lounge because "The Lounge is a good place!" (her words)

In the opener, the guys talk about their, "I'm getting old moments," and Sam makes an announcement that is a surprise to both Richey and Little Matt, and they talk about it a little more in-depth!

All in all, this episode is such an awesome time! Great history conversation, sharing thoughts and life events... it has it all! SO, sit back, relax, and enjoy this episode with Dr. Megan Kate Nelson! NOW, with fewer tangents (at least this episode)!
