NE Beer:30 #59 Steven Mattli | Travel Nurse & Roommate

Steven Mattli is a travel nurse who currently works in the Emergency Department at Bryan East in Lincoln, Nebraska – and he’s NOT FROM NEBRASKA. That’s right! Steven is the first non-Nebraskan to be featured on #NEBeer30. Grady and Steven talk about how Steven got into nursing, what the hospital is like now during the COVID pandemic, what it’s like being roommates, and how Settlers of Catan is the best board game ever. They enjoy Empyrean Brewing Co’s (Lincoln, NE) Tequila Barrel-Aged Chocolate Churro Stout and Founders Brewing’s (Michigan) Mas Agave Grapefruit.

Episode 124: The Empire Strikes Back

Ok, the empire didn’t strike anything. The empire is a welcoming place for all to come. If you have a podcast, the empire wants you.

As proof, we welcome in Grady from NE Beer 30. He’s a good guy who has said some slanderous things about us while flirting with the idea of joining the empire. Will he? Won’t he? The man is a major tease. Also….TV corner. Sex toys and who has them. A man named Steven. And beers from Cosmic Eye and Zipline.

Episode 123 – A fresh look at Pint 9

Episode 123. Another socially distant episode. Only in this one, Zoom has reinstated their 40 minute time limit. WTF?!? The pandemic isn’t over! Keep giving us free stuff!

In this episode, we welcome back Brett Kane. He lives in Denver, which seems to have things much worse than us. We talk about doing sports radio without sports. We talk about maintaining a healthy marriage under pandemic conditions. And we talk about how Mark refuses to spend money on things like sunglasses and sound bars. All while drinking beers from Pint 9, White Elm and Code Beer Co.

Episode 122: Waffle Man vs Pancake Man

Episode 122. If anybody is friends with both the waffle man and the pancake man and wants to arrange for them to come on the show, that’d be cool. Same goes for anyone who knows Joel McHale.

In this episode, we talk improv comedy. And why Mark won’t audibly laugh at a comedy show (the emotional scars are real). We start naming NHL teams for some reason. Reality shows. Quarantine TV Update. Michael Bruntz did not join us. All while drinking beers from White Elm, Zipline, Kros Strain and Pint 9.

Episode 121 – TikTok has TikTaken over

Episode 121 is here. That’s a palindrome. That’s neither relevant nor interesting, it’s just a fact.

In this episode, we get caught up on life under COVID’s rule. Are people starting to get a little rebellious? Feels like it. What’s this TikTok thing? Whatever it is, Connor’s in. Celebs are giving away cool stuff to raise money. Andrew calls in to talk about beer and sports. And Connor breaks down the first season of Community. All while drinking beers from Stone Hollow Brewing.

Episode 120 – Burgers and Pocket Knives

Episode 120. Not as sad as last week’s episode. But….not NOT sad.

In this episode, we welcome in Josh Peterson. He can speak intelligibly about a number of topics, but we wasted his brain by talking about burgers for 45 minutes. ALSO….pocket knife guy (what are they trying to prove?), post-corona world (can we really not high five anymore?), and Lincoln’s beer scene wipes the floor with Omaha’s. All while drinking beers from Cosmic Eye and White Elm.

Episode 119 – Zoom Zoom

Episode 119. Y’all are really doing business over Zoom? That seems hard. Kids are learning this way?

In this episode, we welcome in Jackie. She’s in Connor’s “remote studio.” She’s also a teacher, and gives us the rundown on what that’s like in the age of Corona. Daine zooms in like a Fridge Guy. It’s all very satisfying. All while drinking beers from Kros Strain, Cosmic Eye and Juke’s Ale Works.

Episode 118 – Beers in the Time of Social Distancing

Episode 118. Please listen while maintaining a six foot halo from everybody. We can’t be too careful.

In this episode….the merits of historical sports on TV. Chughub. Using the phone *gasp* to support local businesses. Millennials are the new cool kids. Tiger King. Love is Blind. A response to that jerk over at NE Beer 30. All while drinking beers from White Elm and Nebraska Brewing.

Episode 117 – Stouts w/ no friends

Episode 117. The world is new. It’s different. It’s scary. We aren’t allowed to shake hands anymore. It all happened very quickly.

So, naturally, we spend a half hour talking about Netflix’s Love is Blind. And trying to figure out what CATS is all about (regardless of the presence of buttholes). And, yes, we talk about what it’s like to go through life “with all that’s going on in the world right now.” All while drinking stouts from Big Grove, Goose Island, and Zipline.

Episode 116 – Corona Rodeo

Michael Snow is here. But he’s changed, man. He’s a cowboy now.

This was a weird episode. This was recorded while the entire country was shutting down before our eyes due to COVID-19. We tried to have fun. We realized we probably shouldn’t be having fun. We didn’t know what to do. When all else failed, we made fun of Snow for being a cowboy. All while drinking Coronas, Hopslams, and Cold Press Cocos.

Episode 115 – IPAs with DP

It only took 115 episodes, but we finally brought in Connor’s BBOAT (best beer of all time), the Zipline IPA. And to help share in the moment, we also brought in one of our new day job friends, Derrick Pearson.

Guys, DP has some stories. There are stories about turning down a chance to be the voice of the Clippers. There are stories about the Mormon girls in Utah. There are stories about being related to both Donald Trump and Barack Obama. There are stories about how he lost the ability to get drunk. It’s funny. It’s touching. It’s unbelievable. And it’s only the surface. All while drinking beers from Great Divide and Zipline.

Episode 114 – Beers w/ Coach Miles

Episode 114 with Tim Miles. He doesn’t do craft beer. But we decided to let him hang around anyway.

In this episode….we mostly just let Tim do his thing. Hear stories from his time at Nebraska. Recruiting. Coaching. Drinking Coors Light. It’s all here. Meanwhile, Connor and Mark drank beers from 515 Brewing, Deschutes, and Brickway.

Episode 113 – Beer pods ASSEMBLE

3BL. Fridge Guys. NE Beer :30. All in the same room. And that room is Daine’s horror basement. Who gets out alive? (Hint: Not Connor).

In this episode, Grady broaches the idea of joining the empire. Connor tries to figure out how thirsty we are on Instagram. Daine gives beer recommendations across the country. Kobe. Mitt Romney. Super Bowl streakers. And a whole lot of #Baptology from Epic Brewing.

Episode 112 – 3 Beers and a Shot

Episode 112 started with a “gift” from Iowa Dave. The much better gift is the presence of Dave Feit. There’s some sort of presents/presence pun to be had here, but we’ve been drinking.

In this episode. we talk about Husker podcasts. They’re abundant. They have funny names. We laugh from the outside. Then, we transform INTO a Husker podcast and talk about jerseys for a long time. Connor and Mark revisit their beer journeys. They’ve forked. And we power rank the senses. How important is touch, anyway? All while enjoying beers from Founders and WeldWerks.

Episode 111 – Figuring out what the new guy drinks

Episode 111. Most of it made it on the podcast. But the end…not so much. Just know, the end of this podcast is incredible. We didn’t talk about killing any dogs.

Ryan Tabb joins us on this episode. He’s young. He’s from California. He’s trying to get some Tinder action. And we’re here for it. Along the way….Scooters. Self-driving cars. Ryan’s political takes. Flight attendants. Fake IDs. And drinks from Founders, Badger Hill, James Arthur, and Rico’s grandma.

Episode 110 – Ope!

Episode 110 with Josh Peterson. We couldn’t start on time because we had to wait for him to drive here from Omaha. So we waited around, ate some gyros, and eventually recorded a podcast.

In this episode, we talked for a while about Don’t F*** with Cats. And Repo Games. Sound bars. Weird corners of the internet. Ope. Succession again. But not drones. All while drinking beers from Weldwerks, White Elm, and Sprecher.
