Man School Extra Credit: One Bad Day in Africa
Recently I was at a store in Hollywood and I met a cool guy who worked there named Lahai. He was really interesting and mentioned that he had been almost kidnapped in Africa in the late ’90s when he was 17. I knew he had to be on Man School! So, that’s what this Extra Credit — “One Bad Day in Africa” — is all about.
