Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

My guest this week on the official Ask a Clean Person podcast is Meredith Haggerty, the Reports Editor (and my editor!) at Racked National, who joined me to talk all about summertime foot- and shoe-care woes. You know the ones: smelly feet, soaked shoes, heels that sink into wet lawns at weddings, etc.

Yeah, maybe that last one isn’t so much an issue for you guys, but it sure is a thing my lady readers and listeners know from. So Mer and I touched on that, but not before we talked at great length about what a good foot-care routine looks like, how to de-funk a super-stinky pair of shoes, and the fact that I have filthy Drogon feet.


Oh right, and Meredith recently judged Brooklyn’s Smallest Penis Contest. We definitely talked about that. It had almost nothing to do with cleaning, but I’m a throw-convention-to-the-wind kind of Clean Person, so we talked about small penises and balls and stuff.

But back to my Drogon feet—I could explain what I mean by that, but really, you should just listen to the podcast to get the full effect. I do not think you will be disappointed! Speaking of listening: That is a thing you can do here, or over at iTunes, where you can also subscribe.
