    Rambling Beach Cast Episode 029

    It's back to school week on the Rambling Beach Cast, and Nick and Seth's secret itch to join a sorority was scratched by special guest Kristen Popovich. Kristen is a student at Clemson, who serves as a recruiter for Delta Zeta, an RA for a male athletics dorm, and is famous for "leprechauning" the 2016 Clemson football poster. Discussion centered on debunking, or in some cases proving, the stereotypes of sorority/college life as well as Nick and Seth's reflections on their own joint fraternity experiences as members of Phi Mu Alpha. Random questions about dolphin sex and dog suffering took a dark turn, as did a discussion of skinny jeans and "worship pastor" fashion, but were redeemed by a furious defense of cargo shorts.

    Nick and Seth were pleased to welcome fellow AiPT writer Alyssa Jackson to the podcast. This week's episode of the Rambling Beach Cast is a veritable geek-fest about Star Wars, including the anticipation of Rogue One, the success of Episode IV- I mean, Episode VII, and our personal forays into the Expanded Universe, may it rest in peace. But first, it's all about Lochte-gate at the Olympics and nude Trump statues. Listener questions include our best/worst/favorite Olympic events and more Star Wars!

    Rambling Beach Cast Episode 027

    This week's episode of the Rambling Beach Cast features one of Nick's former students, Mary Ketchum, who was more than happy to demystify the wonders of pregnancy with stories of supermarket weeping, cravings for Publix cake, sleeping difficulties, and the ultimate "free-pass" card. Seth and Nick geek out about the recent frustrations about Star Wars collectibles, and plenty of listener questions at 35:30 about bodily scars, Snickers commercial actors, and which fictional universe we'd prefer to live in. This episode is a few days late, but give us a break, pregnancy math is hard!

    Rambling Beach Cast Episode 026

    The ever-gregarious Seth "Vatt-opotamous" and the mighty, noble Nick "Nafplio-beast" are joined by special guest Lauren Ruoploi on this episode of the Rambling Beach Cast. Featured are some incredible stories of the food service industry, including bondage, pick-up lines, and Office Space moments. Listener questions include our thoughts on political platforms and alien visitation, and they reflect on the exploits of the semi-legendary @FakeLouHoltzKSR. Mildly amusing, completely absurd. We ramble on because we can!

    Rambling Beach Cast is back in your ear holes with a special intro by the Donald himself! Nick and Seth welcome special guest David Brooke from Adventures in Poor Taste to discuss how the Alien franchise is better than Predator, and the problem of lazy imaginations. Listener questions start around 23:30, and Seth gets an epic rant in on one-sided, for-profit journalism as it relates to Trump and Fox News. Mildly amusing, completely absurd. We ramble on because we can!
