    Eat! Drink! Smoke! - Episode 83 - America Goes Swimming, Lockdowns Be Damned! Joe Rogan Scores Cash and the Russell's Reserve Bourbon

    Eat! Drink! Smoke! - Episode 83 - America Goes Swimming, Lockdowns Be Damned! Joe Rogan Scores Cash and the Russell's Reserve Bourbon

    President Trump is threatening to move the Republican convention out of North Carolina, saying the Democrat governor is keeping things shut down on purpose. Meanwhile, the people went to the beach over Memorial Day weekend. They went to community pools in the Ozarks. Coronavirus? What coronavirus? The real question is, were they right or wrong to go?


    Tony Katz hosts the Eat! Drink! Smoke! podcast, presented by Fanimation.com. Today, it's a review of Russell's Reserve 10 year bourbon and the Padron 7000 series cigar. Eat! Drink! Smoke! was recorded at Havana Cigar Lounge in Fishers, IN.


    Would you go to Las Vegas right now? How about New York? And Joe Biden is looking for a VP nominee. Who is leading the pack to get the nod?


    Joe Rogan signs a deal with Spotify that can net him close to $100 million. What does that say about the future of content, and podcasting?

    Eat! Drink! Smoke! - Episode 82 - The Lockdown Insanity Has Everyone Asking What Kind of Nation Are We? And Some People Think They Are Ants

    Eat! Drink! Smoke! - Episode 82 - The Lockdown Insanity Has Everyone Asking What Kind of Nation Are We? And Some People Think They Are Ants

    People in America are divided about lockdowns. Some want to stay ultra-safe from coronavirus, and some want to lick all the doorknobs! Well, not really. It's that some think opening is dangerous and others think staying locked down is dangerous. But even more people are questioning why politicos and media types are so heavily invested in lockdowns: Is there a political win in staying at home?


    Tony Katz hosts the Eat! Drink! Smoke! podcast, presented by Fanimation.com. The podcast was recorded live at Smoker's Choice in Brownsburg, IN.


    It's a review of Jefferson's Very Small Batch bourbon and the La Gloria Cubana Coleccion Reserva Presidente cigar.


    Over one million Americans identify as ants. Or, at least their Facebook activity says so. How Tony's Rabbi has learned to love cheeseburgers, and how the "New Normal" isn't a real thing.

    Eat! Drink! Smoke! - Episode 81 - Gather The Mercedes Driving Cigar Smokers, Expel The Hate Filled Politicos and How To Accept Your Coronavirus Panic Attack

    Eat! Drink! Smoke! - Episode 81 - Gather The Mercedes Driving Cigar Smokers, Expel The Hate Filled Politicos and How To Accept Your Coronavirus Panic Attack

    The coronavirus stay-at-home orders have made people crazy. But for many, it's not the staying at home: It's the hate. Media hates Trump, politicos hate protesters - it's viciousness that can lead many to wonder what the hell happened to their country.


    Tony Katz hosts the Eat! Drink! Smoke! podcast, presented by Fanimation.com. With Fingers Malloy, they review Redneck Riviera American Whiskey and La Aroma De Cuba box press cigar.


    Coronavirus has people confronting issues with lonliness and depression and panic attacks, but also has families coming together, cooking together and finding new ways to engage. Culturally, America will be changed in many ways....possibly for years to come.


    A group of guys got into their Mercedes, headed to an empty parking lot and had a cigar. This isn't a problem, this is fantastic! And it can be done without the Mercedes.

    Eat! Drink! Smoke! - Episode 80 - Were We Right to Close Down Society and Are The People Protesting Stay-At-Home Orders Astroturf?

    Eat! Drink! Smoke! - Episode 80 - Were We Right to Close Down Society and Are The People Protesting Stay-At-Home Orders Astroturf?

    Protests over stay-at-home orders are popping up all over America. Why has the issue of re-opening society become so political? What are the true motives of the protestors?


    Tony Katz hosts the Eat! Drink! Smoke! podcast, presented by Fanimation.com. Tony is enjoying a Lito Gomez No7 Small Batch cigar. Fingers Malloy is trying to smoke an Acid Kuba Kuba cigar from Drew Estate. Their drink - a 41 year old bottle of Seagram's V.O. Yes, Seagram's.


    Protests over the stay-at-home orders have occurred in states like Michigan, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, North Carolina and Utah. Is this an astroturf movement as some have claimed, or is it an organic reaction to perceived government overreach?


    How will America change in a post-lockdown world? How will major professional sports leagues like the NFL and MLB move forward? Will Vegas fully recover? These topics are discussed, as well as Nancy Pelosi's fancy kitchen on this episode of Eat! Drink! Smoke!


    Stay safe. Wash your hands. Smoke cigars.

    Eat! Drink! Smoke! - Episode 79 - Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer's Power-Hungry Play For VP and Alyssa Milano Thinks You're A Killer

    Eat! Drink! Smoke! - Episode 79 - Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer's Power-Hungry Play For VP and Alyssa Milano Thinks You're A Killer

    Lots of governors are showing their power-hungy side during coronavirus, trying to ban near everything and control the movements of everyone. Social distancing is one thing, but what Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer of Michigan is doing is just madness.


    Tony Katz hosts the Eat! Drink! Smoke! podcast, presented by Fanimation.com. Tony is on his deck, enjoying Bravo Bourbon from Hotel Whiskey Tango and an Avo Domaine 70 cigar. Fingers Malloy is on his patio, nursing a Busted Knuckle porter from Quaff On brewing, while enjoying an AJ Fernandez New World.


    Gov. Whitmer is not only banning travel to one's own property, she has banned the sale of seeds. Yes....like tomato seeds, to grow your own food. When does America decide to open up, and how do we handle these shameful elected officials?


    Actress Alyssa Milano, who continues to be the activist no one ever asked for, has noticed that more people are buying guns because of coronavirus. She fears this means that people will become insane, and use them in school shootings. Listen to the most amazing straw man argument ever!


    Stay safe. Wash your hands. Smoke cigars.

    Eat! Drink! Smoke! - Episode 78 - Country Star John Rich and Rabbi Ben Sendrow on Business and Faith During Coronavirus

    Eat! Drink! Smoke! - Episode 78 - Country Star John Rich and Rabbi Ben Sendrow on Business and Faith During Coronavirus

    It's hard to get together during coronavirus, so this week Tony Katz took some great interviews he recently conducted and brought them to the Eat! Drink! Smoke! podcast


    Tony has started a new web series called Virtual Bourbon. (You should subscribe to his You Tube channel!) Two of his interviews deal with people who have had to deal with coronavirus in different ways.


    First, John Rich of the country duo Big and Rich. In addition to being a musician, John is an entrepreneur. He owns a whiskey label called Redneck Riviera, and he has a restaurant in Nashville of the same name. In all of his businesses, he's been forced to figure out how to keep emplopyees afloat. How does he do it, what toll does it take on him? We discuss


    Then, Rabbi Ben Sendrow talks about God, faith and coronavirus. When a pandemic like this hits, with thousands of lives lost, people often question God. So Tony asked him about what he gets asked, and how do you answer the old question, Why Does God Let Bad Things Happen To Good People?


    John drinks Redneck Riviera, obviously. Rabbi Sendrow drinks Aberfeldy scotch.
