Jerry recently posted on social media about all the Abandoned homes, abandoned dreams in Gary, and the responses were passionate and prolific.

He has an interesting background story that explains the situation behind his SpongeBob public image, and his less-than-comical personal life.
Also, New Year’s Resolutions (what is a “resolution” anyways?) – we’ve all got them. Sure, it’s only Day Two of the New Year, but Jerry and Eric check-in with how their resolutions are going so far…
