In the opening episode of Season 4, Sean and Kyle admit to being a little lazy lately and then commit to getting back on the wagon.  That's the power of accountability!  And it's the power of their commitment to their listeners - one insightful episode per week for the next 4 months! The meat of the episode is all about how we tend to define ourselves and each other by the immediate circumstances.  The Dudes postulate that perhaps we should be defined by the entirety of what we do rather than one or two things.   Let them know what YOU think: instagram.com/2ddpodast...
