    Beer Sessions Vol VIII - Dad Beers

    Beer Sessions Vol VIII - Dad Beers

    Dads have been drinking beer since the beginning of time, most likely cultivating beer in their man caves during the early age of man. Literal caves with a man in them – not the cave with a fridge filled with nitro cream IPAs, darts, and signed, framed jerseys of athletes from the ’80s.  The beer they crafted using rock tools, the leaves of a mulberry bush, and wooly mammoth dung has changed a little bit over time but not much. The current version is brewed by a small brewery in America’s heartland– Budweiser. Totally joking. Or am I?
    In honor of dads all over the lands, throughout time, we salute you in this special Father’s Day edition where we go over the top 10 dad beers and shocker – we try some along the way.  Jason Reedy joins us for the festivities.

    Ep. 62 Atlantis

    Ep. 62 Atlantis

    The lost city of Atlantis has intrigued historians, dreamers, and well... me. Truth is many are obsessed. One Atlantis theorist described his pursuit of the potentially mythical land as a gambling addiction. And, whether you realize it or not, you are obsessed with it too. It's ingrained in our DNA. So what's it all about? Where was Atlantis? Have we found it? Who were these futuristic humans? Join us for our latest show to find out. As usual, every show starts with a skit. To fully comprehend it you need to either be on some sort of psychedelic root or know that Plato is by far the most important character in this multi-Millenial tale. Sit back and soak it all in. Enjoy.
