Summary:  A slightly shortened, holiday, version of the podcast! This might be the most we have EVER sweated during a podcast! Culture is our middle name—Ya Cultural Jagoff. After all, John and Rachael learn authentic German culture thanks to Bela Pater, German musician, and Jessica Rand, organizer of the first Pittsburgh Oktoberfest at the Big Butler Fairgrounds.  In addition to the German tradition, we chatted with tradesmen about family time and the rich tradition of one of the largest Labor Day parades in the U.S.
