Jimmy Flores :Jimmy loves apps. He's always finding an excuse to record a podcast or video about apps. He also pays for far too many of them. So many that his wife wonders where all those PayPal invoices are coming from each month. He excels at annoying everyone by constantly spouting his paleo nonsense.
