Episode 16: Oh No, There Goes San Francisco

, with special guest:

Xanadu Sq LogoThis week, we bring in our friend, DC Comics artist Christopher Jones, to talk with us about GODZILLA! We chat about the new film, the Japanese franchise, and other kaiju-related things.

Our wine pairing for this week is Bolla Sangiovese di Romagna, because a discussion about giant monsters needs a robust wine offering. However, if you’re more the cider type, Mr. Jones was drinking a Angry Orchard Cinnful Apple Hard Cider during our recording.

Oh, and here’s a .gif of Godzilla’s victory dance, in case you get to that part of the episode and don’t believe us:

Episode 15: I Am So Sorry, Mr. Ghost of John Ritter

, with special guest: ,

Xanadu Sq LogoThis week, we are posting an experiment: our very first Off Topic episode! See, if you’ve listened to any of our other podcasts, you already know we heavily edit our material. A lot of what we talk about gets edited out for time, irrelevance, or just general failure. This episode is crafted from the very best of our random ramblings, which happened while recording all our previous episodes.

Our wine pairing for this week is… whatever you want! By my math, over the course of the snippets heard in this episode, we killed something like 15 bottles of wine, half a bottle of scotch, several bottles of cider and beer, and a tiny bottle of single-serve sake. Grab your favorite bottle of whatever and join us!

Episode 14: Jerkburger

, with special guest:

Xanadu Sq LogoThis week, we are posting the second half of our recording session with Lex Larson! (The first half can be found in Episode 7.) In this episode, we get uncharacteristically serious and talk about issues of bigotry in entertainment.

Even though it doesn’t sound like it in the episode, all three of us were thoroughly enjoying a couple bottles of wine. If you’d like to drink along with our righteous indignation at the lack of equality in the world, you might enjoy a bottle of Castilla de San Lorenzo Rioja or perhaps a Barefoot Zinfandel.

We do promise to return to our usual irreverent selves next week!

Episode 13: A Banana Hammock Is Never Safe

, with special guest:

Xanadu Sq LogoThis week, we are joined by very special guest Romeo Azar, local creative director and Man of Opinions, for a discussion about James Bond and all things 007!

Booze fans can also rejoice this week, as we have many options for your drinking. Our primary recommendation is Rosenblum Cellars’ Stark Raving Malbec, but feel free to also sample Crispin Classic English Dry Cider or Pacific Pear Cider, as we were under the influence of all three during this episode.

(Actually, there was also a fourth bottle of wine, but we didn’t like it as much, so we won’t plug it in print.)

(No, we didn’t have any martini fixings on hand. Clearly, we don’t plan these things ahead of time.)

Anyway, to distract you from our lack of martinis, here’s a video that Windy, Romeo, and I (and other friends) made over the holidays last year: a mash-up of Bollywood and “The Good Ship Lollypop”. It has nothing to do with James Bond.

Episode 12: F*ck Bubble Wrap

, with special guest:

Xanadu Sq LogoThis week, we are joined by Windy’s husband, Chris “Monte” Bowlsby, and we talk about movies that scarred us as children. Join us in our group therapy!

This week’s booze pairing is Montecillo Rioja Crianza. We don’t know if we’re pronouncing it right, but it sure was nice.
