Episode 126. The microphones weren’t terribly cooperative, but we persevered. Sure, we may have lost someone along the way. But it’s all in the name of the empire!
In this episode, we welcome in John Gaskins, Jake Bogus and Tom Stephens. These three gentlemen were all there at the beginning of 93.7 The Ticket. And they have stories. Some of those stories made it in the podcast, some stayed off-air. We left the best ones in. PLUS….which state is the best state? All while drinking a trio of beers from Cosmic Eye Brewing.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
