He explains the store's humble origins as a cafe offshoot, some wild orders, why Spam is so hard to import (sorry, Rodney) and why Kool Aid is so popular in Sweden - hint: it's not for drinking.

Congrats, everyone! We’ve made it through another week of social distancing. The guys talk about their strategies for beating the boredom including new recipes, must-watch Netflix and baby sleep training. Plus, strategies for eating outside (if it’s not snowing - again). Also, a restaurant based on toilet paper?
The side effects of social distancing mean the guys have some crazy stories to discuss this week - including entertaining an infant who refuses to sleep and Sean almost blowing himself up in the pursuit of grilling. Plus, Rodney drops some interesting facts about why Sweden won't run out of TP. Then, the guys discuss some Netflix recommendations to get you through until next week.
