We first did it in December 2017. It was episode 14. Enough time has passed that we decided we should do it again. It’s the Hot Ones challenge with the Hot Ones power ranker himself, Brett Baker.
In this episode, we ate some hot wings. Some were hot. Some were really hot. Some were stupid hot. We also talked about our career experiences. We talked about our overconfidences. We ate bread. We drank milk. But mostly we just tried to survive with the help of White Elm’s Apricot Saison and Miller High Life.Read More Episode 77 – Hot wings w/ Brett Baker, part II

It took us 73 episodes to find a Rico. Now, we’ve had two in consecutive weeks. Would you believe his actual name is Richard? Neither do we. In this episode, we explore a man who exclusively drinks IPAs. What makes him tick? Hint: it’s hops. We make our predictions about Game of Thrones. Connor’s are the most prescient. We discuss literature. Briefly. And we discover that Mark and Rico have a lot more in common than they previously realized. All while drinking a bunch of different “Sue” variants from Toppling Goliath.Read More Episode 74 – Another Rico and a Sue Parade
Episode 73. Tonight, we introduce Rico to craft beer. So, we brought a sampler. One IPA. One sour. One stout. One survivor (boop!)

Episode 72 with Nick Maestas. You don’t know Nick? He’s the beautiful man who runs the beautiful taco truck Muchachos! But…don’t try to talk to him about other taco trucks. He HATES other taco trucks.
Speaking of beautiful people, have you heard of the show “Are You Hot?” from 2003? Do you ever wonder if YOU’RE hot? Do you want to know if Connor’s girlfriend thinks he’s hot? Do you remember Natalie Imbruglia? Do you want to know what it would sound like if a kid flew away on a kite? We cover all of that while eating nachos and drinking beers supplied by James from Denver from Ursula Brewing and Roadhouse Brewing.Read More Episode 72 – Muchachos and Beers from James
Episode 71 with Josh Peterson. He brought beers. We brought beers. If you do the math, that means we have lots of beers to drink tonight.

What do you do when two conflicting rules collide? You buy a big beer, you buy a little beer, and you throw everything else out the window.

More debates about KC BBQ, but it’s all trumped by the grub at Chester’s Grocery near Ft. Benning. Then…we follow little Jimmy to Sex Island. Little Jimmy will never be the same.

Dear every brewery,
Do you want to be cool? Then be like Renegade Brewing. Give us some beers to drink and talk about.
In episode 61, we bring in Josh Peterson from the Omaha radio scene. As you might expect from a radio guy, he has some things to say. We talk about green text people vs blue text people. We talk about Connor’s disturbing use of LMAO in tweets. We take a LONG time to talk s*** on other media members (specifcally Chris Basnett). Brett Kane called in while playing Red Dead Redemption. And we drank Renegade Brewing’s beers, which were better than last week’s Renegade Brewing beers.Read More Episode 61 – Renegade Brewing, part 2
Episode 60 with Jack Mitchell and half of the beers provided to us by Denver’s Renegade Brewing. Look at the picture. They’re very pretty.
In this episode, we yell about pizza (again). We break the red-clad rules. Jack raps with Run DMC, which fulfills today’s part of the “26 Days of Jack”. We all agree that the “pay-it-forward” chains at Starbucks are stupid. But Axe Body Spray? Not stupid. All while drinking some alcohol-laden gifts from Renegade Brewing.Read More Episode 60 – Renegade Brewing, part 1
It finally happened. Connor’s gone. Connor’s replacement backed out. So…Jake Sorensen makes his debut appearance on this podcast. We swore it wouldn’t happen, but here we are. Also…Lanny Holstein!
In this episode, Lanny tries to school us about the English language. And logical fallacies. Turns out, he works closely with a ‘flat-earther.’ We talk about wine, concerts, mouth herpes, and masculine toilets. Then Jake gets pretty heated about bear droppings and moose. All while enjoying four offerings from Saro Cider.
(We know it’s not beer. We don’t care.)Read More Episode 59 – Saro Cider sampler
Episode 58. We welcome back our good friend, Doug. Why is he our good friend? Partially because of his winning personality. And partially because he brought a couple of crowlers to share.
In this episode, Connor and Doug explain Red Dead Redemption to Mark. Then a guy called to ask Connor about his Bridgestone tires. Spoiler alert….Connor is very satisfied with how the tires look. We discussed local taproom experiences. We talked about something called mukbang and other weird Youtube things.
