302: The Soul Box
Victoria is back and we jump right into her wheelhouse: One Direction and makeup. Do NOT underestimate the power of YouTube. It will fucking kill you.
Victoria helps us understand comics and we discuss how crazy some story lines will get. I complain about nonsensical plot and Victoria complains about preachy Joker. Daniel leads us in to Game of Thrones thanks to our first beer of the week.
Geek talk continues to Star Wars and someone on Craigslist trying to sell a star destroyer and one interesting review. We have beer number two and get into some baseball from the 3rd week of April.
We end the show on a dildo inserted with 21 grams of your loved one’s ashes. Yeah we’ll just end it here.

301: Penile Plethysmograph
Butch and Daniel record a pleasantly long Uncast without the help of our beautiful hostess, Victoria. We start off with a bit of baseball as the Padres win their 2nd game of the season and cackle with glee as the Red Sox and Yankees take it 19 innings. We recount Butch’s Unniversary experience and the glory that is our new screen door.
Beer of the Week takes a personal turn as we drink a special beer by a special brewery for a personal cause. Toolbox Brewing made a delicious beer for Beer to the Rescue to raise funds for the Lupus Foundation of Southern California. You all know what this means to us. A special shout out to Brandon Hernandez for creating the organization, to Hollaine Hopkins for running LFSC and of course Spencer and Amanda at Toolbox for making this a truly special moment for me and the show. Rhian love, we miss you dearly, and our lives are better because your heart touched ours and your spirit still dances with ours.
Oh and just for you love, they’ve opened an authentic poutine and Montreal-style bagel shop in San Diego. It’s 3-4 years later than we’d hoped but it’s here and it’s delicious. Hat tip to the folks at Mess Royale in Hillcrest. Go check them out, if you’re in the area.
Now back to sports. Baseball season has started and Daniel is trying to predict shit again. The NHL and NBA playoffs are set to start soon, so we have that going for us, which is nice. Could we have an all Canada Stanley Cup Finals? Could we have 3 teams from the Eastern Conference make the NBA playoffs with a losing record? Time will already be telling by the time this is released.
While we get into Darren Sharper’s sentencing and pause for beer #2, the marathon double-game within a game that was the Red Sox and Yankees, finally comes to a merciful end. That brings us to beer #2 and this Four Seasons is not bad but it’s also not Frankie and the boys.
Last but not least, we “Ask A Black” with a fairly deep question…so deep…you know how it goes.

300: The Ocho
Starting this shitshow right off with our first of two Unniversary beers of the week: Perch Anniversary Belgian Peach. Oh and what a peach it is! Speaking of peach, someone didn’t know what a blue waffle was and you just know we ate that shit up. Also, hot things are hot and peach things are not.
Things get aluminum foil hat real quick and UnJim makes his exit. 5 minutes after he left…we get to 3 words to summarize your porn searches. Even the guy in the Rice jersey…even he mistook words for syllables. You shoulda hung out, man! Victoria even breaks out the Super Fight cards and shit gets real: our review of Lightning Thunderweisen which somehow becomes a discussion about Ballast Point Sculpin. You know, because when you’ve had one, you’re reminded of the other, and that’s certainly not a bad thing.
What is a bad thing, is when beer talk leads to a shot from back and to the left. We dodge it successfully and instead pose this question: What does your life look like if you were only allowed to spend your money on things that start with the same letter as the first letter in your first name? Daniel finds a way to get pwned twice in one segment. To deflect, the room gang bangs Andrea’s mouth with a variety of American sugary treats. You’ll have to listen to find out how that went.

299: North Park Nights
We start off with a little get off my lawn memories of Uncast 1 and dealing with online communities with their hive mind mentality. What would you do for a million bucks? We all also had a pretty awesome weekend. Victoria and Andrea went out to enjoy their anniversary at The Smoking Goat, The Flavordome, Bar Pink, Coin-Op, Streetcar Merchants, The Office Bar, etc. Meanwhile, Butch and Daniel hit Bottlecraft, Streetcar, Rip Current, and closed down S&M Sausage and Meat before recording episode 298. This was the first of what would be 3 trips there 5 days. We’ll end this one with Beer of the Week and we’ll see you all at Unniversary on Saturday!

297: Japanese Summer of 69 Boyz
Our gastro-hipster, Daniel, famous for saying “everything is better with bacon” at the turn of the century and was doing shots of sriracha before it broke so big they’re now making beer with it, is now ready to announce “the next big thing.” Want to know what it is? Take a listen. With this show you also get Selma, beer, food, beer, penis, and more beer. ENJOY!

298: What Do You Mean Off Color?
This is a mancast! Yeah that’s right, Daniel and Butch have taken over the show! We start right off, already half drunk (Butch was full drunk) by talking Unniversary and judging people for not being adventurous in our Pre-Show Madness options. GO VOTE ON THE FACEBOOK EVENT, PEOPLE!!!
Beers of the Week start off strong with Alesmith’s Pale Ale .394 to honor Mr Padre and Mr San Diego, Tony Gwynn. What a nice beer. This give Daniel excuse to give us all a history lesson in Padres uniforms. Why? Because at this point he might be a little toasted. We also talk about some awesome North Park music and Daniel tries not to segue this into his crush on Whitney Shay but Butch totally siderails him. Don’t check out his blog post about her though. Certainly DO go check out her first album or just check out her website.
With the DaHonays coming out to join us a bit early for the week, we have a lot of new breweries to introduce them to. Which ones do you think might be “must sees?” We do get in a quick review of the new Kilowatt Brewing and let’s just say they have potential but you have to have a little patience with green breweries. Seriously though, I love beer but San Diego needs to slow down a bit. I think as we recorded this, two new ones just opened up. Oh and someone needs to tell Butch the difference between a blueberry and a raspberry.
It’s a mancast, so that means sports! We’re both big sports fans and we don’t get to discuss the sportsing very often but it’s Spring Training, motherfuckers! This brings up talk of teams and of players and somehow, challenging the authority of your parental units with physicality. Let’s be very clear: it’s not a good idea. We close out with beer of the week #3 and teasing some of the reason why some of you teaser “maybes” are going to really hate yourself for not actually coming out.

296: Everyone Into the Shat Wagon
This show is over 500 Ronda Rousey matches long. Don’t worry though, we think we might have the proper challenge for her. Just give us a moment while we complain about the internet for a bit. Then we can get on to the science of the matter and its affect on space time. By the way, who is on your lunchtime Mt Rushmore? In other words, what four people would you most want to share a meal table with? Of course there would be beer with Girl Scout cookies. The cookies are not made with real Girl Scouts but the beer is made with Guatemalan coffee aged in bourbon barrels. So we have that going for us, which is nice.
What we don’t have is any hockey or baseball fans up in the Casa. So Daniel works it in by using funny sports injuries and the others fall for it for a while. They are not as good at making Daniel fall for listening to Kanye West. Listen to the latest Kanye album? So help me god, no. Even getting Klosterman’s thoughts flipped around won’t help. Oh but he’s producing stuff with Taylor Swift now, so if they alright, we alright.
Our second beer of the week leads to us talking about heading to London and the upcoming live recording of Smartest Man in the World Podcast with Greg Proops which is another podcast we highly recommend. Beer #3 is yet another winner in what completes a successful run of beers.
Butch had a good birthday party. On one hand, it wasn’t “wake up in an office” birthday but on the other, it was a “wake up eating a burrito” birthday. So he almost had Troy’s nightmare but he wasn’t the burrito, so all is well.
Speaking of burritos, Victoria found an amazing place in Chula Vista next to where Butch and I grew up, called Aqui es Texcoco. If you’re in the area, check it out. They’re really good! This even inspired Vivi to do an awesome list. We pimp out the upcoming Universary 8…”The Ocho”…and Butch is bringing presents for Vivi and Daniel. Get here. Make it happen. So many awesome guests both local and not are confirmed. This episode ends with “Ask a Black” sent in by our new friend, Kendall. Thanks Kendall!
