Episode 011: Garbage Eater

In Episode 11 of The Nose Knows we learn that Brent the Intern has lost a tooth and possibly his dignity, we learn the meaning behind the name "CXXVI," and we get heavy into career choices and the reality behind them, all while blaming Wikipedia for our mishaps along the way.




The Nose Knows is a podcast hosted by Jon Contino featuring Brent the Intern. Jon answers questions submitted by listeners about design and the life of a creative person. He discusses personal stories about his honest experiences building a creative business over the years, shares behind the scenes hijnx and hilarity, and may go on random tangents about old pop culture and air grievances with just about everything.
