Episode 45: Time Is a Beard

0045 Off TopicThis is our 45th episode, which means it is time for our third Off Topic extravaganza! If you’re a longtime listener, you already know what this means, but in case you’re new to the Pleasure Dome, here’s what’s going on:

Our episodes are heavily edited, because we record drunk and edit sober. Most of what we cut out are things that nobody will miss, but sometimes we have to clip out something that is entertaining, but it doesn’t fit in the episode. So, we save all those clips until we can just make a whole damn episode out of them. It’s like a crazy quilt, but with drunken ramblings.

(In case you are curious, here are Off Topic #1 and Off Topic #2.)

The audio bits you are about to hear were recorded between August and November 2014. The audio quality will vary, the subject matter will roam wildly, and our level of sobriety will be completely unpredictable. You will also hear the beautiful voices of:

Matt Kessen
Gordon Smuder
Sharon Stiteler
Rob Callahan
Chris Bowlsby
Windy’s Mom

Also, here’s a series of photos showing Sharon Stiteler reacting during one of the clips you’ll hear:
