Episode 11: WWOZier Than Thou

Welcome to Episode 11. Please tell us about our levels. Engineer Pat worked hard on them. We think Alli’s singing really benefits.

Segment 1

Is the drummer the “loser position” of a band? It apparently is when Jim Letten does it. The weather service controls everyone’s phone. New Orleans is under attack by Jade Helm.

It’s Super Tuesday Three (Make Tuesday Super Again) Results are coming in as we record so we try to keep up a bit. John Kasich really hates The Roots. Also he looks a lot like character actor JT Walsh.

The legislative special session failed to fix the budget. We talk a little about how and why that happened. It happened because the House Republicans are toddlers and it’s never good when toddlers show up in the news.

Segment 2

Daylight savings inspired discussion about technological obsolescence. Impromptu film review of The New Kids (1985) starring James Spader. Saints free agency is happening and Alli still hates every Stanford player. She makes the case for drafting Jaylon Smith despite his injuries.  Drew Brees will endorse anything no matter how sketchy. The scam reminds us of a charter school naming exercise that happened on Twitter this week. Anyway, it’s possible that every quarterback is actually a terrible person.  Mark Sanchez is the new Jeff Garcia.

WWOZ is in some sort of turmoil. We take the opportunity to discuss whether or not WTIX is actually more “authentic” than the Nolier-Than-Thou OZ these days.

Segment 3

Twitter questions: 1) New Orleans James Beard Award finalists. We endorse Isaac Toups. 2) Why is Jeff so smug? 3) OPSB funding plans 4) Airbnb regulations

That’s Entertainment (Perhaps re-named “Still Steppin Out”): Jeff went to the Irish Channel Parade. Lance ate at Taqueria Del Fuego, saw Tom Hook and Wendell Brunious at Dos Jefes and then saw Meschiya Lake show at Chickie Wah Wah. Alli did the Lafitte Greenway hike, volunteered for the Once In A Brew Moon event at City Park, went to an International Women’s Day brunch, built a raised bed garden, and learned how to drive a stick.

The Jivewire brought to you by Magnolia Builders LLC:  Be sure and listen for the part where Jeff almost forgets about and then utterly fails to deliver his own stupid  joke for this week

Thanks again for listening

Episode 10: Make The Podcast Great Again (a totally yuuge Presidential primary preview)

It’s the history making Episode 10 of Hunkerdowncast.  The Louisiana Presidential Primaries are days away and we’ve invited our buddy Mark (Oyster or sometimes @Erster)  to help us make nonsense of it all.

Segment 1

Was Ben Carson’s campaign a scam?  What signage have you seen around town?  Who is leading in the polls?  We discuss the Republican horse race and possible paths to the nomination for Trump or Not Trump. Trump talked about his penis size during the debate.  This turns out to be a well established campaign tradition, however.

Can Trump even run a third party campaign?  Ross Perot might be a precedent. Also we might be able to do a Ross Perot impersonation.  (Does anyone remember Ross Perot?)  Differing opinions on chances of an actual President Trump. Concurring opinions on political fault lines exposed by Trump.

Trump is the #JustDoStuff candidate. Is he a “tameable Hitler,” though? Varg wants to know why everyone keeps pooping in the potable water.

Segment 2

In media res we jump into a grab bag of current events from the week.

Porn for Gusman’s inmates. Jeff has questions about a specific post-publication edit to this article.

Marques Colston was cut this week.  Bacchus still sucks. There’s a Marques Colston song based on Tootsee Roll  @mrclio taught us.

– Susan Guidry wants to make people’s lives slightly less difficult vis-a-vis marijuana possession. Leon Cannizzaro and Newell Normand won’t let her, though.  Meanwhile, watch out for the “weeder maids.”

You know the segment is over when we devolve into USFL memories.

Segment 3

We try to address some Twitter questions. We don’t get far with it.

“Are You Not Entertained” is now “That’s Entertainment” for some reason. Just go with it.  Anyway, Jeff and Varg lost a football game. Mark tells us about the challenges of homework help in foreign languages. This has something to do with po-boys. Alli has a bunch of restaurant reviews. (Commander’s jazz brunch, Cane and Table, NOLA Brewery Tap Room, and Kenton’s) Varg was in a fashion show at Rock N Bowl. Also some drama happened with an ex-truck of his.

Recipe Minute: Alli entered a mole style chili into a competition.  It was a good recipe but did not win.

Finally, as always, the Jivewire sponsored by Magnolia Builders.

Have fun voting against your least favorite candidate this weekend. Thanks to Mark for sitting in with us. Thanks, again to everyone for listening.
