#24 – Stone 16th Anniversary and Propagandhi

29 Oct

We drink the 16th Anniversary IPA from Stone Brewing. It’s made with lemon verbena. It is delicious. We discuss how Stone Brewing is kind of the Apple Computer of craft beer.

We listen to the title track of the latest Propagandhi album, Failed States. Given that Propagandhi is louder than The Carpenters, Russ’s reaction is somewhat predictable. The real entertainment, however, is in Russ’s reaction to the old Propagandhi song we listen to as a reference to how their sound has evolved. Gold, Jerry! Gold! I inadvertently managed to do half an episode on Propagandhi without a single mention of John K. Samson or The Weakerthans, two artists of which I am very fond.

It looks like ~20-minute-long episodes are the new normal. We want to produce episodes that have good topical integrity and maintain forward momentum throughout, and I think we are honoring that directive despite the steadily increasing episode length. There is something comfortable about 20 minutes. Please let us know if you disagree. I would also like to point out that we posted 5 episodes this month because we are a couple of badasses.

We created a handy Episode Guide.

We are available on iTunes.

    I don’t believe that Russ is a real dude. I think he’s an actor you (Tony) paid to act like the biggest douche in the history of douches.

      You’re so close Dave. Russ is actually Tony but processed through a Jersey Shore voice modulator.
