    Episode 101 – Insurrection, Guns, Privacy

    Episode 101 – Insurrection, Guns, Privacy
    This week I briefly hit on the big topics of the last few weeks: Jan 6 Hearings, Gun Culture and What it really means to have Roe overturned. I open with America’s latest infatuation with all things point to the POTUS. Since when? The beer this week is Rockford Brewing Something Hoppy. A crisp IPA.

    Episode 100 – Dems want Results / Musk we?

    Reunion Show, 100!!! Fred and Knobs return to the One Shot Studios to kick around world events for E100. We discuss everything from Amber to Ukraine. Good laughs and perhaps a few salient points along the way.

    Episode 99 – War and Gas / Wordle Mania

    Episode 99 – War and Gas / Wordle Mania
    This week I offer my dour prognostication of the War in Ukraine. It’s not filled with optimism. I hope I’m wrong. Plenty of blame going around for high gas prices. Let’s put that blame where it belongs – and it’s not Biden. My take on the mania sweeping the world. Keep playing, stop the sharing.

    Episode 98 – Rogan V Palin
    Lefty joins me as we discuss the cross section of the social media content accountability and the accountability of MSM News. He provides the beer; Griffin Claw Soupy C, and it hits the bullseye.

    Episode 97 – The Gaslighting of Jan 6

    Episode 97 – The Gaslighting of Jan 6
    The band gets back together (unapologetic cliché). Fred and Knob join me as we discuss what the rightwing nutjobs are doing to change the narrative of what took place on Jan 6, 2021. Will there ever be true accountability for those that planted the seeds of insurrection?
    Beer this week was a Kickstand Brewing Birch Bark Porter. Tasted way better than the name.

    Episode 96 – Is this the Wild West? / Sourdough Observance

    Episode 96 – Is this the Wild West? / Sourdough Observance

    This week I revisit the three gun violence events that have scarred America in recent weeks. Rittenhouse, Arbery and Oxford High. I also look at monthly observances around the globe. Some good causes, some silly ones.
    Beer this week was a home brew from a customer. I suggest you find, or brew, your own.

Good as a cold brew in July

I am a Trump (Dear Leader) supporter. Voted for him in ‘16 & will again in ‘20. With that being said I appreciate the opposite view point. This show has a great mix of their wrong opinions on politics & great insights on beer and I enjoy when they dive into current events not necessarily political.

Cliff notes to covefefe politics-these guys deliver

Great listen. I listen to NPR but Pod'ems Up will now be part of my regular news intake.
Super great conversational tone and they pick up on political nuances that are not covered everywhere else. I am going to share with my friends.
Blotto probably needs to up his taste in beer--but you don't need to acquire a taste for IPA's to enjoy this cool podcast!

Hooked!

I devoured the first three episodes of this podcast in two days and couldn’t wait for more! This combination of politics, beer, and culture are exactly what I want to listen to on my long commute! Check them out!
