Once every 1,000 years, two people come together and use their words to change the course of the world, as we know it. We are not those two people, but we like to pretend we are. Now you may be asking yourself, what is an American Unicorn? If you don’t have an answer to that question you need to leave right now… American Unicorns don’t explain themselves. In fact that will be a theme on our podcast, a lack of explanation, as well as a general dislike of most things, like slow walkers. If you are a slow walker you also need to leave right now, we don’t have time for your ambling, purposeless lumbering. If you are not one of the aforementioned people, we hope you enjoy our podcast and maybe you will learn something about yourself along the way. At the very least you will know what an Alicorn is…
