Birdman aka Episode 21 Redux

John and Mark host a special in-person, socially distanced podcast recording with the founder of the Central Kentucky Bluebird Trail at West Sixth Farm. Once again, they started their day with the outstanding collaboration between West Sixth and Country Boy, the Country Western Cinnamon Toast Stout. We re-issued this episode thinking Chris would have the domain fixed, but he doesn't. We also added the correct podcast file :)

Cinnamon Toast for Breakfast

John and Mark once again visit the West Sixth Farm for an in-person, socially distanced podcast. They had some of the West Sixth/Country Boy Cinnamon Toast Stout collaboration. They talked about how they are using iOS 14, along with some Big Sur talk.

The Tremendous, Beautiful, Huge, and Perfect Episode

John and Mark ventured to Madtree Brewing in Cincinnati for a socially distanced in-person episode. The brunch menu from Catch a Fire was very inviting! John had the hash quesadilla and Mark had shrimp and grits. Both were outstanding, especially with the Madtree beer for breakfast. They talked a little about the worsening COVID-19 problems. The plan was to talk about how they were keeping up with the roller-coaster election results, but as they finished their first beer, Joe Biden was declared the next President of the United States.

It’s the End of the World As We Know It

John and Mark started off talking about the upcoming election. They enjoyed the Every Vote Counts Hazy Pale Ale from Madtree Brewing. They had a really cool conversation about activist, digital rights leader and scifi author Cory Doctorow. His books Little Brother and Homeland were influential in further crafting their world view. John has started Cory's new book, Attack Surface, and taunted Mark about how good it was so far!

Big Ol' Jet Airliner

Every Song in My Pocket

John and Mark welcomed Jody McCann to the podcast to chat about music. After they talked about craft beer and wine, they jumped into how they have listened to music over the years, Jody's "hobby" with public radio engineering and show hosting. Jody will be back on the podcast soon to finish talking about topics they didn't get to cover, such as the DMCA, Fair Use and how the EFF helps.

How We Work in the COVID-19 Era

John and Mark actually meet-up in person at the West Sixth Farm in Franklin County, Kentucky to record an episode. It's also where they worked for the day.

They are joined by their regular guest, Mitch, and the infamous Chris on this epoisode.

Brewery Love and Food To Go

Recorded several weeks ago and lost due to quarantine, John, Mark and regular special guest Mitch mostly talk about beer, food to go and supporting local businesses. The show notes suck for this episode :)

Even Mo Money

John and Mark recorded this episode on-site at the Dead Lizard Brewery in Orlando, FL before the COVID-19 crisis. This was their first on-site recording session.

Of course, they chatted about the great brews from Dead Lizard and also Rock Pit Brewing in the Orlando area.

The Lost Episode (aka Chris-Less)

John and Mark are joined by Mitch, the first 3-time guest, to talk about all sorts of things.

Houston, We Have a Problem

John and Mark, and two special guests Mitch and Norwin, talk about the COVID-19 health crisis across the world and during its early stages in the US. They had some really good beer from Braxton Brewing and Rhinegeist, plus a really, really bad imported beer from elsewhere!

Mo Money, Mo Money

John and Mark talk about subscriptions to all sorts of apps, services, etc. They are paying for so many subscriptions that a second episode is needed to cover everything.
