Episode 139 – Stone Hollow and Pain

In this episode, there is some good and there is some bad. The good is beer provided by the good folks at Stone Hollow Brewing (go to their Oktoberfest this weekend.) The bad is the pain inflicted by Brett Baker and the Truth or Dab game he decided to bring along with him.

For this episode, we just played Truth or Dab. It’s a game where you either have to answer the question posed or suffer capsaicin. 2 million+ scovilles, according to Brett. Listen in as we reveal personal details and suffer when we don’t. All while drinking Oktoberfest, Pink Guave Flamango Cider and Czech Please Pilsner from Stone Hollow.

Episode 138 – Live from Kros Strain

Live is the wrong word. This is a podcast. But while we were recording, we were sitting at Kros Strain in a room with 26 foot tall ceilings lined with barrels. Sitting with us….Bobby Kros and Jeff Hardy.

In this episode, we learn about brewery life. Turns out, it’s every bit as glamorous as you imagine. Bobby and Jeff discuss the processes of conceptualizing, brewing, and marketing new beers. Connor learns about science. And, of course, a review of the state of reality television. All while drinking beers like the Barrel Aged Krostoberfest, Nilla Nectar, and a Hot as Helles Bloody Mary from Kros Strain.

Episode 137 – Margarita-Off 2020

Steven M Sipple. Joshua F Peterson. Limes. Tequila. Salt. Orange Liqueur. This is the great margarita showdown of 2020.

These two individuals geek out about their beverages. They’re also both encyclopedias when it comes to the last 20 years of Nebraska football, so we dig into that pain. Come for the tequila. Stay to hear all of the people that Sipple refuses to text back.

Episode 136 – Disney Channel Memories

Linsey Chamberlin makes her 3rd appearance on the pod. She’s shooting for 5 by the end of the year. It’s ambitious. But she’s committed.

In this episode, we remember high school. We evaluate the stocks of former Disney Channel stars. Linsey geeks out about Pink Panther, which is an unquestionably bad movie. And Connor almost tells us a story about eating dinner on a farm before the computer abruptly decided that this episode should be done. All while drinking beers from DuClaw Brewing, Zipline Brewing and Denver Beer Co.

Episode 134 – CBeerD and hunger pangs

Episode 134. No guests. And technically no sponsors. BUT….we did receive samples of a CBD/Beer product to review. That product is called…wait for it…CBeerD.

What makes us qualified to review CBD products? Nothing. We’re CBD virgins. Maybe that’s why we’re qualified. But it was fun. Check out CBeerD.co. Try some whilst listening to us ramble about units of lengths, state borders, Ben Affleck, and engagement photos. All while drinking beverages from Kros Strain, Dillon Dam Brewery and Glacial Till.

Episode 130 – No Guests. No Beers.

Because we’re drinking ciders. You didn’t think we were going alcohol-free, did you? That was a dumb assumption on your part.

In this episode, we talk about bidets and the possibility of starting a poop blog. You could be the next face of poop! Do quacks echo? Is Connor smart? Racism. COVID. My Little Pony Nazis. And Zack Greinke (unrelated). All while drinking ciders from Saro, Boiler and Glacial Till.

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!

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.

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 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.
