Ep.20: The Bowie Knife, Outlaw Country and The Modern Day Robin Hood
On this episode of The Flask At Hand Podcast it is once again highland scotch time, only this time its a wonderfully affordable bottle from Trader Joe's. If you don't have a Trader Joe's store near you go online and order some of this whisky! It's simply called Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky 10 years old but is has the Alexander Murray name on it. Delicious AND cheap, which are never used in the same sentence but in this case very much apply here. After the whisky review we mount our horses, swing by Jim Bowie's and learn about this crazy man and why the well known knife was named after him. Then Outlaw Country! whooo! Johnny Cash, Hank Williams JR, Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard and how they turned Nashville upside down with their new style of country music. Finally the modern day Robin Hood: Stephen Jackley and the bank heists and bookies robberies that gave this 20 something year old the famous nick name as he stole money from the "Man" and went around handing stacks of cash to homeless people. So get ready for another exciting episode and sip, listen, learn and laugh with us! As always, thanks for listening. Cheers!

Ep.18: Blanton's bourbon and Bob Lazar: Conspiracy Theorist or Secret Alien Technology Whistle Blower?
On this episode of The Flask At Hand Podcast we are excited to taste and review the rare and.... expensive Blanton's Kentucky Straight Bourbon for the first time. And what a whiskey it is, WOW. Tonight's topic is a fun one. Secret government programs, alien technology, other worldly space craft and the man that claims to have worked on and observed them. Tonight we talk about bob Lazar. In 1989 a man named "Dennis" went on national TV to tell the world about a project he worked on at a secret US government facility in the Nevada desert. Shortly after this his identity became known, Bob Lazar was the biggest name in the country in 1989, becoming a cornerstone for the UFO and conspiracy world. This was the beginning of the Area 51 craze. Was he for real or full of sh*t? We will go over some of the facts and some of the not so facts and try to figure out whether Bob Lazar is telling the truth or just another UFO nut looking for attention.
P.S. We are UFO nuts

Ep.17: Diamonds, Breakfast, White Jesus and other lies
On this episode of The Flask At Hand Podcast we talk about lies. Historical lies we.... or some of us anyway continue to believe. Starting out with an interesting true/false quiz which Aaron and Jake fail horribly. We then learn why Jesus is portrayed as a white guy with blue eyes and light hair even to this day in almost every church, Christian or Catholic household, paintings and statues despite being born in the middle east. We then move into diamond territory and talk about the De Beers Corporation and their ingenious marketing ploys that allowed them to mine, sell and control the world's diamond industry based on one of the biggest and most lucrative lies of all time. Oh, and by the way... that one is still happening. Next we find out that whoever told us breakfast is the most important meal of the day lied to us, even if they didn't know it. From John Harvey Kellogg, the Eugenicist that invented Corn flakes to feed his mental patients to keep them from masturbating to C.W. Post, the inventor of Grape Nuts and former Mental patient of Kellogg's. We'll touch on some nutrition lies as well and get into short term fasting. Our whisky review this evening is none other than Sheep Dip blended scotch. Sheep dip is blended using up to 16 single malts from Speyside, the Highlands and Islay ranging from 8 to 20 years old. A delicious and interesting dram. So sit back and press play, sip, listen, learn and laugh with us! Thanks for listening. Cheers!!
