The Brotherhood of Sleep

You can almost taste the catfish, grits, and sweet tea in nearly every episode, and that's considered a good thing!

This is my first episode of Southern Fried True Crime, and I absolutely love it. Very to the point but love how Eric will tell how she feels about some subjects.
