Episode 98: So Many Carbs for Your Joy

0098 War MoviesThis week, dear listeners, we bring you an episode about war movies, featuring super-special guest star, Pat Wick!

This episode was recorded waaay back in October, so we’re extra excited to bring this one to you this week. It kept getting bumped out because of various reasons (i.e., “Noel did a two-part episode again”, “we probably shouldn’t post an episode about war movies on Christmas”, etc.), but now it is live in the world, and you can reminisce about the days when Melissa could still have a beer! (Or at least Melissa can reminisce about beer.)

Speaking of beer, this week we recommend either Original Sin hard cider or Bauhaus Brew Labs Schwantoberfest. Both are delicious, and the Bauhaus Brew Labs have an amazing packaging design team.

Oh, and here’s the photo that is mentioned in the episode:

    Ah, Custer. When I was a kid, my sister and I visited what was then still called the Custer Battlefield National Monument in Montana. This being the early 80s, and us being really young, we didn’t have much context for the place at all. (Of the sights seen in Montana during that road trip, Lewis & Clark Caverns made MUCH more of an impression. On that same road trip? Devil’s Tower. Aw yeah.)

    I keep meaning to watch M&C:TFSOTW, I should probably bump it up the list at some point…
