Hot damn, we made it twenty episodes! This time we’re celebrating with what is probably the beer most commonly brought to every house party in Portland, Full Sail Brewing Company’s “Session” lager! In our Bike Talk segment, we talk about the “ghost bike” phenomenon, and go over some unexpectedly interesting stats on cyclist deaths over the recent years. In our Game Talk segment, we talk about how to keep your game going and your group together through the schedule-destroying times of the late holiday season. In our Bar Talk segment, we talk about bar fights – how to avoid them and how to survive them.
This time we have two special guests in the studio, Andre and Alma of the local klesmer-gypsy-punk band Chervona! Our drink of the evening is Bak’s Bison Grass Vodka (aka Żubrówka), a new experience that I (NPC) quite enjoyed – this may even become my new go-to for vodka drinking! In our Bike Talk segment we check in on Xander’s daily frosty commute, and then tell stories of Chervona’s bike-religious drummer. In our Game Talk segment, we kinda forget about games and just tell cat stories. In our Bar Talk segment, we talk about how to survive those holiday parties that you really don’t want to be at. We close out with more discussion of Chervona, and some details of awesome events that are coming up soon!
