150: The Lightning Round

Butch joins us this week for the ever important show 150. We start off with a delicious beer, Daniel expresses his theory that everyone’s sexual orientation goes at least 2% the other way and we ask the important question: If you can’t wear white after Labor Day, when can you wear white again? Butch recommends some books for us to read as summer ends and we go through some of the things we did this Labor Day weekend including seeing the DaHonays and Marina at a campground in Mission Bay and our discovery of Sweet Tea Vodka. Victoria gets white trash on us and we all suck at Labor Day traditions.

Daniel presents us all with things he learned from podcasts this week, Butch tells us some stories in a new Lightning Round and of course there’s some sports news including the first Game of The Week for 2009. We think there are far too many sports with US Open tournaments: Soccer, Tennis, Golf, Surfing, Badminton, Snowboarding, Mountain Biking, Supercross and Cycling. After a few jokes and moments of clarity we add in some of our favorite musical discoveries of the summer, some charity work, some great places to enjoy a few drinks and you’ve got yourself a nice long episode without a single article being involved! We do however have just a few links for you. Enjoy tomorrow cause today’s schedule just filled up. One hour, 47 minutes, 37 seconds.

137: AIDS Is Hilarious

There’s a lot going on this week. We start out with a solid trio of beers, including a stout brewed by Satan himself. You know it’s true both from the demon on the bottle and the 16% ABV. We review Game Night at Becky’s place and do a short review of an animated penguin flick from 2007. You guess which one before you listen and see if you’re right at the end.

We get the latest Susan Boyle news, though no one truly cares, and some surprising fact about the Pringles chips we all love so much (or not). We learn about why we stare at freaks, how worms can cure your disease and a recent trend popularized by a local burger chain. We have some letters from listeners, a great TV show Victoria just found and a short bit about music. We end the show with a new segment which should become a constant in the show: RECIPE OF THE WEEK! Thanks to Lil for the idea! You get this show in a robust 62:20, slow roasted to bring out all the best flavors.

Uncast is hosting a Double/Imperial IPA Beer Tasting Friday, June 12th! Email us if you want to attend and be a part of this and let us know which Double/Imperial IPA you’re bringing. ALSO there’s the upcoming birthday party on June 27th. If you haven’t gotten the invite yet and you want to attend, please email us at uncast.net@gmail.com.

105: Straw Man!

Rhian from Audiobuzzed joins us for this episode live in our home!

We start the show off discussing keeping her with us always and Canadian provinces before jumping into Rhian’s adventures on her flight out here and her initial impressions of San Diego.

We talk about our first few days this week including dinner at Dublin Square her first night out here, breakfast at Pannikin the first morning and our trip down the coast to see our beaches. Rhian is amazed with palm trees, birds of paradise and our weather. We take her out to one of the beaches in La Jolla, Chuao Chocolatier and of course her first In-N-Out experience which includes the joys of Straw Man. From there is Too Cool For Karaoke in a new location and anticipation for what would happen the rest of the week.
We get this all in under 74 minutes and give it to you as a sort of part 1 of 3. Enjoy!

When you’re done with this, if you haven’t done so already, go checkout Rhian and Jim at Audiobuzzed.com! They’re awesome!

096: The Mounting Pole

Victoria starts us off with a mathematical word problem surrounding 80’s new age pop music groups. We then go on to discuss her trip to Los Angeles and the adventures on the train. I bitch about my co-workers and boss, move on to football and wrap up my segment by going off on Malcolm Gladwell. Is he the new L Ron Hubbard? The new Joseph Smith? The new Nietzsche? Is it fair of me to lump him in with these people? We finish the episode by closing the Food Mascot Tournament of Champions. Who will win? Do you agree with the outcomes? Do you care? Write us at uncast.net@gmail.com and tell us how you feel about what we discussed today.

Also, episode 100 is just around the corner. YES we will still record the show on Saturday because we’re road warriors dammit and we’re determined to record 4 shows in 5 days. Email us your mp3 greetings or just give us a list of conversation topics, things you want us to discuss or perhaps you have a story to tell or an opinion that needs to be heard. Have a question for us? All of these things can be sent in to uncast.net@gmail.com or comment on the website at www.uncast.net OR leave a message on our myspace page or Facebook group wall!

094: Eight Seconds

Uncast enjoyed hosting it’s first ever beer tasting party. It was a smashing success. Joining us in on this episode (though mostly heard in the background due to our shitty guest mic) is Allison, Butch, Spence and Tony.

Topics jump all over the place so I’m not even giving you any formal notes. Just know there’s a couple stories from Butch, the return of Daniel’s Redactions, The Food Mascot Tournament of Champions and lots of laughs.

We’re cramming this 8 seconds into about 93 minutes. Think you can handle it? Guess who can’t.
