Wandering the Aisles documents the impulse buys, thefts, and meandering grievances of everyday people in the American retail wasteland and beyond. Happenings out in the world. Spontaneous conversational films.
Ham & Table
A strolling inventory of the chicharrones, fresh spices, and Llama-cop piñatas at the vibrant Lowe's Supermercado in Denver, CO. Comedian Adrian Mesa @mesathings gives @bambifransworth a crash course on Cuban cuisine and presents a compelling case for his theory of pretentious restaurant naming.
From Denver to LA via a Dropbox Homing pigeon, @sethandthecity collaborates with @bambifransworth on a very special @wanderingaisles. The show is comprised of two audio letters, a clip of one of Seth's greatest standup bits, and brand new music from @thefriendshipsband, his musical partnership with @ryamcownie
An afternoon with one of my real-deal, go-to friends here in Denver, Alex Elliott @alexelliottpics. And by afternoon, seriously, I mean the better part of an entire afternoon. Mostly Sprouts and us just talking in my truck. Verité podcasting. I didn't cut much because it's really hard to get tired of this guy. He's a genuine, wise, cat who never brags or name drops AT ALL even though he totally could. For example, I was months into knowing Alex before he happened to casually mention he was a finalist to be on "The Bachelor." And (paraphrasing here): "It's funny you bring that up because one summer I filmed some stuff with Jimmy Fallon and slapped Hannibal Burress in the face a bunch of times for a thing." Stuff like that. Introducing Alex Elliott.
Sizzling with Sharad
@Insanebrownposse (BK Sharad) joins Andy in the search for fatherly comedy affirmation, talks being brown in Colorado, and cooks bacon the entire time he's on the phone. There's considerable soul-searching, faltering, questionable monologue-ing in this one so if you're itching to cancel somebody get that notepad out.
Ritualcraft (Target for Denver Witches) and Botanica Yemaya with massage therapist, hand witch, and healing artist, Abby Jane Palmer @abbyjanepalmer. We slash through the shame forests of our religious upbringings and find our way into the clearing of a more inclusive and freeing spirituality. Sex, magic, and good-touch karma flowing through this episode.
The Edge of Denver
What begins as a failed trip to REI for a hat, becomes Steve Vanderploeg @slumdogchillionaire giving @bambifransworth a surprise visit to the now-defunct "Dog the Bounty Hunter" retail store. We walk Sloan's Lake and find the solace of our earliest curse words among the wary pandemic ducks. Support Wandering the Aisles on Patreon.
What we need, all the time
Strange times or not, Wandering the Aisles is such a wonderful audio companion to my day. I find myself rewinding certain sections just to laugh or ponder one of Andy’s witticisms. If you love smart, funny biographical and observational humor, you will love this podcast.
Vulnerability at its finest
Andy delivers each show with a refreshing transparency-it frequently feels like I’m listening to a cousin or coworker that I sort of know, and feel a little bit uncomfortable sometimes - in a good way - having them divulge such intimate details to me. My favorite episode yet is the one about the sweat lodge. Amazing! Keep doing what you do, Andy!
Tune in to Wander
