Jason and Diggs virtually welcome Eugen Freund, a retired journalist/newscaster and former politician from Austria (and our first international guest), to this episode of The Candy Factory 5BY5 Podcast! We chat for five minutes about five random topics that are presented to us by our good friend, Frank (aka Jason’s iPad). We’re constantly adding new topics to the list, if you have any suggestions, let us know! Sometimes serious, sometimes witty, and sometimes even entertaining(!), nobody knows where the conversation will go until it unfolds in the moment.

Which would you erase forever: bee stings, mosquito bites, or poison ivy?

Upon review, witch hazel was not the name of the plant that Diggs needed to look out for during his trips down South – unfortunately, he couldn’t figure out the name before the release of the podcast.
The cat heard towards the end of the third topic had to be put down between the show’s recording and release. Her name was Nemo.
