Meet the Rogues on the Road. Matt an avid outdoorsman and former science teacher turned distiller. And Rich the "Brit", a city slicker who moved to the US and works in special education. Matt and Rich embrace their cultural differences and come together each week to discuss food, travel, booze and everything in between. Laugh and learn along the way as they sample fun bites & beverages, embrace challenges, meet unique guests and even play a few pranks. So, listen in as they gather around the microphone alongside their sound engineer: The Standby Gypsy.

McDonald's has had similar success getting established in hospitals, with branches at the Children's Memorial Hospital Complex in Chicago, Ill., and the Naval Medical Center San Diego."
