Dan Gursky is back on the show, filling in for Patrick, and comes up with an interesting discussion idea: whistling songs. If you have a go-to whistle song, let us know know by email, social media, or in the comments!

FUN FACT: The town of Sullivans Island, South Carolina actually proposed a law fining anyone who whistled in public, or disturbed the peace, in 2010.
