    Teddy & The Bassman - Episode 43

    Teddy & The Bassman - Episode 43

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!! Episode 43 is very merry indeed! Have a Ho Ho Ho as Teddy and The Bassman take a moment to celebrate the season. Because it’s Christmas, we do things a little differently. No guests, no Steampunk Cellar, No Keeper, just us, talking about the things that mean something to us.
     
    Teddy pushes back on the naysayers of early decorating with some cold hard facts. The Bassman waxes lyrical (wax, get it?) about immortality, and Teddy suggests ways of showing stress, that most unwelcome guest during the holidays, the proverbial door. We also celebrate the Sacred, or True Masculine and Feminine, and muse about the coming year. And it wouldn't be Christmas without a reading of The Bassman's poem "Christmas Day".

    It also wouldn’t be a T&TB episode without the usual mélange of vintage holiday commercials and jingles, interspersed with a plethora of cool music.

    Teddy & The Bassman - Episode 42

    Episode 42 rolls in just in time for thanksgiving – and we have so very much to be thankful for.
     
    Special guest Dave LaPage grants us the most honest and moving interview to date. In it, Dave speaks candidly about the struggles he faced coming out in a very fundamentalist Christian home, and his hopes and dreams for the future.
    We couldn’t make up our mind for The Keeper; Dave helps us pile a few more things we can live without in the Steampunk Cellar, and The Bassman holds forth on one of his more unusual quizzes.
     
    And of course, it wouldn’t be a T&TB episode without the usual mélange of vintage commercials and jingles, interspersed with a plethora of cool music.

    Teddy & The Bassman - Episode 41

    Two episodes in the same month? Must be spring!
     
    In Episode 41, special guest, Sara Tolson, has been on our guest bucket list since we first started podcasting. Sara is a phenomenal young performer, friend, and all-round great human being, and it was great having her with us in the Steampunk Library.
     
    We open the hungry maw of the Steampunk Cellar for not one but two offerings, and the Keeper is probably our most delicious yet.
     
    It wouldn’t be a T&TB episode without a naughty quiz, and Sarah happily joined in with the debauchery. A great time was had by all.

    And of course, it wouldn’t be a T&TB episode without the usual mélange of vintage commercials and jingles, interspersed with a plethora of cool music. And don’t forget to hang on until the end – here there be bloopers.

    Teddy & The Bassman - Episode 40

    Yeah, we’re embarrassed at how long it’s been! When real life gets in the way, it really gets in the way.
     
    In Episode 40, we have a very special guest, Melanie Williford, of Courageous Crossing Productions and a podcaster in her own right – Thespis in The Green Room. She tells us her fascinating journey in the theatre and inspires us with her fearless pursuit in achieving her goals and dreams. We have a failed Keeper, but we manage to find one for the glass case.
     
    We also want to thank YOU for your patience with us. We promise it won’t be another six months between episodes!

    But of course, it wouldn’t be a T&TB episode without the usual mélange of vintage commercials and jingles, interspersed with a plethora of cool music. And don’t forget to hang on until the end – here there be bloopers.

    Teddy & The Bassman - Episode 39

    Boy, you just couldn’t shut Teddy up in this podcast – I think she had been hitting the caffeinated coffee or something ;)
     
    In episode 39, we introduce a brand new fixture – The Keeper! (Yes, you have to use the reverb setting when you say that – it’s in the book), which is the antithesis of the now-Legendary Steampunk Cellar. With The Keeper, instead of choosing things to throw away, we are picking our very favourite and putting them into the glass case to display forever. In its inaugural episode, we’ll be choosing The Keeper for best songwriter and best rude insulting name.
     
    But we didn’t want the Steampunk Cellar to feel left out, so we tossed a couple of bones down there to keep it happy until dinnertime. We review Teddy’s new book The Chine, as well as the Bassman’s continuing improving health, our new daily routine, Unsolved Mysteries, and Serena Williams. Then, we finish up with a sobering discussion about Incel, a growing and disturbing sub culture.

    But of course, it wouldn’t be a T&TB episode without the usual mélange of vintage commercials and jingles, interspersed with a plethora of cool music. And don’t forget to hang on until the end – here there be bloopers.

    Teddy & The Bassman - Episode 38

    Welcome to Episode 38, our second post-stroke podcast – I think you’ll agree that the Bassman is sounding better every day. We are joined by the Podfather himself, the God of Pod, Evan Harris. This is also part one of a crossover podcast with the newly ressurected Lucky Ten Thousand podcast.
     
    Recording a podcast is always fun with Evan, who is a true force of nature. We tackle some fun subjects ranging from nostalgia to Star Trek, and we have a big ol’ KFC Value bucket of items to toss into the Steampunk Cellar. And please don’t forget to vote in the Podcast Awards for The Bearded Ones and the Lucky Ten Thousand – there’s still time!
    But of course, it wouldn’t be a T&TB episode without the usual mélange of vintage commercials and jingles, interspersed with a plethora of cool music.
