Behind every great man is a great woman. That’s certainly true with our guest today, Lisa Enders. Lisa is the wife of theTurtleRoom’s Founder and President, Steve Enders, or as she calls him, Stephen. In the episode, Anthony is on his own as he tries to live up to the standard Shannon has set for solo missions. The good news is, Lisa and Anthony are old buddies, with lots of experiences together at the Hamburg show, random car rental places in Lebanon, PA, and meals at the diagonal dining room table. This is going to be a fun one… As long as Anthony can get Lisa to really share her feelings about her turtle-loving husband’s ridiculousness.
