This week we invite Mike Faber, creator of the ESO Podcast Network, into our own little podcast lair to drink beer and chat about politics, religion and all the other stuff they say you aren’t supposed to discuss with friends. Mike discusses his many podcasts and tells you (yes, you) how you can start your own podcast. And, since it’s the first night of Hanukkah, we quiz Mike on all the things we should know (but don’t) about the Festival of Lights. Our Live Beer Review features the extremely tasty Office Party Holiday Stoutby Abita. Hanukkah sumach! y’all!
Hey, it’s episode 50 which means we’re almost a full year into This Epic Disaster Podcast! Send us an email at email@example.com and tell us what you think of our little show. How can we do better? What can we add? What should we drop? This week we wind up our Thanksgiving celebrations and start gearing up for Christmas. Rick has a couple of seemingly random encounters this week with a friend and a stranger. Could these mean new adventures for the new year? We just might have our first 5 star beer of the year with Boulevard Brewing Company’s Bourbon Barrel Quad.
It’s Thanksgiving week and Rick recalls a big argument in one of his relationships: is it dressing or stuffing? Cheri discovers that turkeys have been recalled due to salmonella but no one will tell where they come from. A listener letter about the definition of sex initiates new conversations including a story about Canadian doctors doing unauthorized exams on women. Cheri prepares for a bionic knee and Rick finds a video channel by Nordic Whisper that combines boobs and ASMR. Speaking of Nordic, our Live Beer Review features Einstök Icelandic Toasted Porter by Einstök Beer.
Well. In what may be our most inappropriate episode ever, we ask (and answer) questions like “Is it too early to put up Christmas decorations?” “Should babies be circumcised?” Is it okay to masturbate with mayonnaise?” “What is the difference between a Brazilian and Nazi wax?” “Why should you never put a bicycle pump in your rectum?” “What is the definition of sex?” and “What is being unfaithful?” We’re not sure what to say other than we’re really, really sorry. Our Live Beer Review is Siracusa Nera by Dogfish Head Craft Brewery.
Cheri and Rick welcome November with some little known November facts. Cheri ruins Rick’s day with new Dad Jokes and Rick finds some lonely folks looking for Halloween Missed Connections. Rick doesn’t understand how one particular commercial jingle made it through the agency and then tries to wade through several racially insensitive episodes of The Monkees. Our Live Beer Review is the not so pumpkiny Ichabod by New Holland Brewing.
It’s the day before Halloween and Cheri and Rick have treats on their mind. Rick discusses the 25 most popular Halloween candy in America. Where does your favorite rank? Cheri tells of a city that has banned a certain type of candy. Rick has been internet stalking someone and wonders how he can actually become this person’s real friend. We name the winners of our This Epic Disaster Trick or Treat game. Our Live Beer Review is Funk 49 by Turnagain Brewing.
We are joined in the studio this week by one of Cheri’s best friends, Ri-Sean AKA “The Stalker” visiting Atlanta all the way from Anchorage, Alaska! Rick tries to get sordid revelations about Cheri’s past and, in true Alaskan spirit, strikes gold. Cheri and Ri-Sean visit Atlanta’s Netherworld and live to tell about it. Rick takes an autism test and now wonders if he should get professionally tested. Ri-Sean shares one of her great life disasters and may very well top us all. Rick attempts to give Cheri relationship advice and only succeeds in pissing her off.”The Stalker” brings us “The Experiment” from Anchorage Brewing Company for our Live Beer Review.
After last week’s sex episode, Cheri decides to run with the topic and brings in a sex quiz for Rick and 25 Interesting Facts about Sex. Did you already know this stuff?? Rick wants to get into body painting but he’s afraid people will think he’s a perv. The Live Beer Review is Sour Inc Apple Rhubarb Gose by New Holland Brewing.
Rick has some gripes about a couple of products he purchased recently and can’t stop ranting about it. In Virginia, a dangerous Butt Bandit is tainting the produce section of the local grocery store. Cheri and Rick examine weird things couple do and wonder what type of dangerous sex seems exciting. This week our Trick or Treat Game kicks off on Facebook. Go Play and win prizes! Our Live Beer Review is Kentucky Pumpkin Barrel Ale by Alltech.
