Episode 37-B: Total Eclipse of the Varg

This is Varg’s epic journey to Paducah, Kentucky to see the solar eclipse last month. The story ran pretty long so we cut it out and released it as a “B side” to Episode 37. Varg’s trip takes him through the wilds of Mississippi to Jackson (America’s most radical city) on to Memphis and then across the great convergence of rivers at Cairo, Ill before finally arriving at the Eclipse Zone where something spiritual happens (maybe.) And then the whole thing kind of devolves into a backyard philosophy debate but with not enough weed.

Also Jeff promised to add notes concerning Marlin Gusman’s chargees sometimes running loose on Bourbon Street, as well as this article by Sam Kriss about the virtues of staring into the sun.

Incidental music samples: “Someone Like You” by  Adele, “True and Natural Man” by Kristin Diable, and “Distance Equals Rate Times Time” by The Pixies. Also the unofficial but pretty much official Hunkerdowncast theme is “Campers” by Testaverde.

Episode 37-A: Just SOSO

Please enjoy some highlights of Matthew Hill and Johnese Smith’s performances at the Urban Conservancy’s mayoral debate on Flood Risk and Environmental Change this month. Full video here.  

Meanwhile, how have we been?  This episode is one big Steppin’ On Steppin Out (SOSO) segment, you know, just to catch everybody up on us.

Among the topics: Lance goes to see a “Wildcat” wrestling event in Metairie. Jeff and Alli go to the LSU/BYU season opener in the Superdome. Somehow this segues into a talk about the Graham-Cassidy Obamacare repeal bill. There’s the obligatory LSU/Notre Dame/Florida college football roundup. Alli goes to DC and  communes with the Juggalo March and observes the counterprogrammed “CHUD” rally.  Jeff and Lance do something called Seersucker Monday.  

There’s actually more but it ran long so we’re saving it for a bonus episode coming out later this week.
