This week we are joined by Trae Crowder, Corey Ryan Forrester, and Drew Morgan from the WellRed Comedy Tour, WellRed Podcast, and authors of The Liberal Redneck Manifesto : Draggin' Dixie Outta the Dark. During our conversations we are reminded that viewpoints can vary dramatically, and this can be amplified by geography. What is deemed left leaning in the south can quickly look right if you are on the west coast. A long standing right of passage in some areas can just be a really crappy liquor in other areas. We are reminded what is acceptable at a football game may not pass during a Disney movie, but you might just hear song quotes at either of them. There are good drugs and there are bad drugs, but if either of them makes you lose your appetite for mac and cheese it should be stopped immediately. We also learn that one man's beef might just hit for another.
All of us dream about taking a summer to travel, party with friends, and basically just take it easy. The problem is that we all have responsibilities both financial and personal that keep us from taking this epic journey. This week you will meet a man who was dealt the perfect hand to make this dream summer a reality, and he is going to play it. If the way the conversation twists and turns is an indication of how the summer is going to go; it should be a wild one.
This week we remember a musician who actually died doing what he loved, and those around him just kept on living while doing the same. As other rock stars continue to age you have to wonder if stories like this one are going to become more commonplace. Less common is a fight in a church, but even more rare is when the fight involves the Bishop. Almost as rare are the differences in the big box hardware stores, but we are reminded of how little it takes to shift ones loyalty between them. For the record I am a Lowes guy now...this week.
What's old is new again, but does that make it good? Vinyl has been making a comeback for a while, and we understand some of the logic behind this rise in popularity. Tape decks are another story all together, but big battery loves the sound of that revolution. We get our hands on an old style mug made of horn, and the limitations of this medium become obvious pretty quickly. Gift cards are the gift that rarely gets old, but that is because if they don't get used they are often lost before they can age. Strap on your drinking sandals because we have found a familiar Cinco De Mayo beer for your enjoyment.
