    r/parlerwatch mods and Caer Maiko: Parler and Pop-Ups

    r/parlerwatch mods and Caer Maiko: Parler and Pop-Ups

    We decided to try out a couple new things for this very special episode: for one, it’s our first time having (well, trying to have) multiple guests on at once. And two, the guests of this episode wanted to remain anonymous. Joining us are the moderators of r/parlerwatch, a Reddit sub whose original purpose was to be a safe space for people to stay informed about what was happening on social media site Parler.

    Keith talks with u/rootoo (and occasionally u/thefisharezombies and u/alphap) about a range of topics, from how some average republicans became exposed to far-right ideologies and “Q,” to freedom of speech and the importance of maintaining mental health while learning about some of the darker spaces and rhetoric on the Internet. 

    Guest bartender is Caer Maiko, an award-winning bartender based in Austin, TX. She talks with us about Daijoubu, the “super Asian cocktail pop up” she created with Sharon Yeung, and shares with us some of her favorite Asian-inspired cocktails.

    TMark and Rafa Garcia Febles: TMark's Got Style, (Le) Crocodile!

    After a crazy couple first weeks of 2021, we wanted to have a relaxed, fun episode. This week, Keith talked with TMark (Terrel Marcus), Bronx-born and raised fashion designer, sneaker collector, and hip hop enthusiast. He and Keith take a deep dive into these topics, and talk about their love for Jay-Z and The Yankees.
    Guest bartender is Rafa Garcia Febles, NYC-based bartender and sommelier who most recently was manager and sommelier at Le Crocodile at the Wythe Hotel. He shares with us "The Veracruz" - a cocktail that features a white wine.

    Jessica DeLoach and Luke Graham: Talking Politics

    For our first episode of the new year, we brought in Jessica DeLoach—a political and communications strategist who has been dubbed the “most seasoned millennial Democrat in American broadcast punditry.” She and Keith discuss some of the political challenges our country has been facing lately. There’s obviously a lot to talk about there, so stop reading this description and press play! 




    Guest bartender is Boston-born-and-based bartender Luke Graham. He and Keith talk about their ideas to reopen some of their favorite shuddered bars, and Luke shares with us his “Spaghetti Western” cocktail.

    Fred Cray and Daniyel Jones: Found Photos and Angostura Shots

    Fred Cray and Daniyel Jones: Found Photos and Angostura Shots

    We first discovered this episode’s guest when Keith found a mysterious photo inside a book he bought at Rough Draft bookstore in Kingston, NY. It was a portrait of a man, hand-numbered on the back and a stamp that read “Unique Photograph / Fred Cray.”

    We, of course, did some research and found that this truly was a one-of-a-kind photo, hand-placed in this book by our neighbor, Brooklyn-based artist Fred Cray.

    In this episode, Fred talks with us about his Unique Photographs project (through which he’s left hundreds of thousands of unique photos across the world), the “fingerprints” project he has coming out soon, and why he hasn’t been taking photos of people wearing masks.

    Guest bartender is the fun and entertaining Daniyel Jones, Global Brand Ambassador for House of Angostura. He shares with Keith his passion for rum and Angostura bitters and spirits, and makes a couple old fashioned variations for us.
