Finally, the ALL-ALMONDS episode you've been waiting for! Sympathize with awesome guest Ginger Gonzaga (ABC's Mixology) as she patiently discusses almonds with Janet for almost the entire hour.* Oh, and a little bit about debate teams, hallucinogenic teas, and a "free-farting" flute teacher. *Extreme exaggeration
