Episode 007 – Live, Cry, Repeat

This week on the Adults? Podcast we’ve got the first of two IPA heavy episodes featuring Jansport and Herschel.

Here’re the topics:

If someone made a movie about your life, what genre would it be and who would play you? (3:32) — It’s no spoiler to tell you that our life movies suck, but this Modern Times’ Fortunate Islands actually doesn’t.

What ethical considerations come into play when accepting a job? (16:00) — We pretend to have ethics! And drink two beers: Ballast Point’s Pineapple & Grapefruit Sculpins.

Comedy movies and television, what’s up with that? (32:15) — I randomly roll on a table to see what topic we discuss and we drink Belching Beaver Brewery’s Here Comes Mango.

Groundhog Day hypo: what do you do if you’re stuck in a loop repeating the same day until you get it right? (46:40) — We walk you through how we’d spend our time with eternity, while sipping on a Karl Strauss Mosaic Session IPA.

Episode 006 – Pleasant Surprises

This week on the Adults? Podcast we’ve got an all woman cast! Introducing, Louis, Céline, and Chanel!

Here’re the topics:

What’s the stupidest rule or social convention you feel the need to follow? (2:18) — we disagree over whether several rules are dumb or not while drinking Skinny Bitches, made with lemon, lime, and Ventura Spirits’ California Vodka (which claims to be the only vodka in the world made from Strawberries).

What’s up with working out in Los Angeles? And how do you get your workouts in? (19:47) — people in LA are sometimes crazy, here’s an example served chilled with Patrón Tequila.

What fictional characters do you like the most? (27:52) — in which we discuss the women of Star Wars, Game of Thrones and Disney, and also a dwarf and a hobbit. Accompanied by Blanton’s Bourbon.

What if you could imbue inanimate objects with life and have discussions with them? What items are on your to-do list? (43:35) — as is often the case we end our podcast with a drunken hypothetical, and this time it got a bit bawdy as we ended the night with some Talisker 10.

Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band Are Finally Rocking the Cloud

I just learned yesterday that Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band’s music was finally being made available on streaming services other than Pandora. This makes me way happier than it should make any adult.

To understand why I guess you’d need to know that Seger was a staple in my early childhood, both in the car during road trips and in the garage of my childhood home where my dad would work on his motorcycles every weekend. Seger was present enough that I vividly remember (repeatedly) declaring him to be my favorite artist when I was between the ages of about 5 and 8.

And unlike most of the “favorite” artists and bands that I’ve had since then, my love for Seger has not faded in any significant way.

So, with that in mind, here are my five favorite Bob Seger songs:

Episode 005 – Friendship Pending

This week on the Adults? Podcast we’ve got two new guests: Tumi and Solo. Solo could only stay for the first two segments, but he’ll be back in the future.

Here’re the topics:

What are some things we’ve outgrown (5:42) — we sip on Old Overholt Rye and discuss the things we’ve left behind. Solo has a hot take on the NBA that seems particularly relevant right now.

What does social media make better, and what does it make worse, about the human condition? (24:19) — in which we discuss passive-aggressive social interactions on Facebook, but also some good stuff that social networks allow us to do, all while drinking some 12-year old Glenfarclas Scotch Whisky.

Craft Beer is Dead – Gose Ruined Craft Beer (39:55) — or is it? Here’s our take, which is appropriately accompanied by two Anderson Valley Brewing Company Goses, their Holy Gose and their Briny Melon Gose.

Based on the movie Stay Tuned: You’re sucked into your Television and have to make your way out by fighting your way through warped versions of your favorite TV shows that are trying to kill you. Which show finally gets you? (48:15) — as is often the case we end our podcast with a drunken hypothetical, and we were definitely drunk by this point. But we were happy, because we were drinking Rekorderlig Strawberry Lime Hard Cider.

Episode 004 – An Unkindness of Public School Children

This week on the Adults? Podcast we’ve got the second episode we recorded. We kept the buzz going and taped it the same night that we taped last week’s episode.

Here’re the topics:

Bands we just never got (2:11) these are the bands we were always told we should like, but just didn’t or were indifferent towards, much like our indifference towards the Shock Top Belgian White we were drinking.

What are the best movies about financial issues? (15:28) turns out we love us some business-related movies, and we have mixed feelings about the Stella Artois. By the way, if you want to see the end credits of The Other Guys, which Steve mentions during the segment, you can see that here.

Andy Whiteman asks an obscure trivia question and chooses the best response (30:20) — a short segment where we try to get into Andy’s head, and also into some wine with a Dark Horse Big Red Blend.

Should people still go to business school? (37:31) you’ll have to listen to find out, but I’ll tell you here and now that we’re drinking Basil Hayden’s Bourbon and Ginger Beer.
