A weekly podcast where we have regular segments that include the Hidden Herf, where we don't know what cigar we are smoking for the first half of the show; Local Spotlight, featuring a local or no-so-local cigar lounge or bar; and the Conspiracy Corner where any topic is fair game as long as it carries some controversy.
