With David Garofalo in Las Vegas at IPCPR, Mr. Jonathan puts on his lab coat for a series of experiments. The first one is a continuation of #StrengthGate as he just can’t let it go. Today he looks at the size of the cigar and the temperature it burns at. Does smaller mean hotter?

In the second hour we will discuss the best way to smoke in your car. It’s an argument between many couples, but today we will share with you the best way to limit the amount of smoke in the car. It’s something Barry & Mr. Jonathan might actually agree on.
Oh yeah, there will be some cigars smoked as well.
