Ishikawa-based chat with an American man and and English man.
rudera quaedam de bus
Episode 51! In this week's typically late installment, the conversation meanders around tax donations, mistaken identity, craft beer, house chickens, and a bunch of other random stuff. There's deflation, a wifely interruption, a quiz from Casey, several in your areas, and even a cultural misscommunication. Bobby Judo receives yet another mention, and if you hang on in there till the end you might even get a poem (you definitely will). Please give us a review if you want, or not, we don't really mind.
Bend Your Knees and Thrust
The long wait is over. Episode 50 has arrived. After several weeks on hiatus, the gents are here to recount some physical difficulties, Joe's fifth anniversary with Gorgonzola, something nasty about Joe's toe, Joes's trip to a jazz concert, Joe making a coffee table, Joe Joe Joe Joe Joe Joe. In each other's respective area, we hear of dogs, ducks, and bees.
@kumayama100 poetry in Joetion (not an episode)
First things first, this is not an episode. It is a half episode, a semisode, it's the shadow of an episode. It's a pre-curser to episodes to come, it flies in the face of episodes, it is not...an episode.
So, in this episode, Casey is conspicuous by his absence. In a flagrant act of self-abuse, he has taken advantage of a free house to wallow in whiskey, no doubt engaging in other vices, possibly browsing chickens on a popular search engine, maybe spreading his seed, and all the while dancing about in his tighty whiteys to Gloria Gaynor tracks and showtunes. Truly, he's living the life of a bachelor for one weekend only. I, Joe, on the other hand have GRAFTED and crafted a unique non-episode for your pleasure. It features me, talking about me. A recording from a guest to the show (this week), there is an unusual quiz for you, the listener (singular), an in-your-area featuring one of the North East of England's top musical artists. I sought permission from the band to play a whole song in the podcast and wouldn't you know it, granted! So you can enjoy that. Then after that I have made the mistake of including some vocals of my own, which should only serve to enhance Sam Fender's already amazing talents.
Anyway, it probably took you longer to read this than listen to the episode...not episode. Quiz answer next time!!

The Bald and the Beautiful
Episode 49 sees the guys back to full power after last week's somewhat uninspired effort. They discuss a slew of topics right out of the gate -- Casey's annoying family, their respective Twitter standing, Casey's wife's continuing Shohei Ohtani fixation, Joes pillow, old lady farts -- and that's just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. Casey quizzes Joe about something near and dear to his head, and then they explore disasters both man made and natural in each other's area. Finally, Joe describes a spooky cross-cultural miscommunication.
Going Through the Motions
The short, breviloquent, sententious, compendiary episode.
This week the weather was dull, uninspiring, and wet, which also neatly summarises this episode. There’s a verbosity quiz, a couple of sky and sea-based animal centered in your areas, and the boys talk about birds and how to entice them over to your place. As usual Bobby Judo gets a mention.
A Friendly Ploughing
It's episode 48, and once again the gentlemen manage to prattle on for well over an hour about nothing of substance whatsoever. There are some Beanpod segments, Joe might have cancer*, a few listener questions and rants, ANOTHER sports quiz, and some happy regional news. Joe may drop a few F-bombs along the way and Casey's eyes probably did glaze over once or twice. All in all, par for the course.
