Jones and Mike – 4/12/15: Beautiful People, Tax Refunds, and (Overnight) Fitness Tips

Barry Manilow is gay!  WHAT?!?!?!  The announcement that has rocked the world of pop culture gets bandied about on The Jones and Mike Show as the guys talk about the various perceptions that people can have about those around them and their relationships.  With April 15th right around the corner the guys discuss their tax situations as Mike finds himself writing a check and Jones finds himself getting one.  Dovetailing from refunds and pay outs to a discussion about the advantages that some enjoy because of their physical beauty, Jones details a story of a co-worker that imbibes in a number of advantages due to her attractive appearance.  As Jones and Mike continue their discussion about the advantages that beautiful people enjoy over others, they stop and take time to acknowledge the challenges and responsibilities that also come with the gift of physical splendor.  With all this talk of physical attractiveness the guys, appropriately, close out the show discussing Mike’s poorly executed half-marathon training program.
