Episode 104 - Raves Vol. 3 The Friday after Thanksgiving is a great night to throw a rave. A lot of people are in town visiting family for the holiday and might be looking for something to do. In November of 1999, Matthew's friends in Bend made it happen.
Episode 103 - Information Dictation The cliche that high school will be the "best years of your life" is a cruel farce that has been debunked left and right, yet it still persists. Those years are unquestionably important and formative, but ask anyone (especially teenagers) about their high school experience and most will tell you that shit is pretty rough. Nathan's run through the gantlet certainly fits that description.
Episode 102 - Horse Trample, WY According to population data from 2016, the ratio of people to horses in the United States at that time was 46:1. If we limit the scope to just Wyoming, however, there were five people for every horse. That's a hell of a lot of horses. Our guest Jeremy tells the story of how his hometown got its fake name.
Hypotheticals Vol. 13 Enjoy another round of hypothetical questions!
Episode 100 - Coming Down Up All Night Several years and hundreds of beers later, we've actually hit Episode 100! And though we had grand plans to celebrate our centennial, current events dictate a more limited scope. So we are saving the live show with pyrotechnics and lasers for a later date and trying something a little different from our usual fare. Tonight we're going to get a little bit steamy with a look into the sexual awakening of your hosts.
Episode 99 - Fallout Dan As we discussed in Episode 88, most kids have a shoplifting phase at some point when they're growing up. Some get stung right away and give up, others run with it until they fly too close to the sun. Our friend Dan and his schoolmates in Evanston found the third path.
Episode 98 - On Becoming a God in Western Oregon The human mind is truly a wonder to behold. Capable of incredible feats of logic and creativity, as well as ludicrous flights of fancy. But it's also terribly fragile, and it's a tragic cliche that sometimes those who burn the brightest also crash the hardest. Matthew tells the story of one of his friends who might have flown too close to the sun.
Episode 97 - We Don't Give A Cluck At first glance, playing a show on a commercial chicken farm doesn't sound like an ideal choice of venue. But when you're first starting out, any place with a stage and a PA system is a step above playing shows in backyards and basements. Sometimes you just gotta go where the people are, even if it's Tom Brown's Poultry Farm.
Episode 96 - Los Embajadores In the summer between sophomore and junior year in high school, Matthew is invited to join a Catholic service mission to Tijuana. Sensing an opportunity for unsupervised shenanigans in a foreign country, he does all the fundraising and gets on the bus. Taco stands, beaches, other kids there with no parents - what could go wrong?
