Frivolous cold open this week. Then, it’s Episode 16! Sing with us!
Segment 1 (goes about one hour)
Some talk about beer and music which becomes kind of a shout out or at least reference to the Beer and MP3s podcast. Then we try to recap the final day of the legislative regular session with NFL FIlms background music but Jeff doesn’t quite get it right. At one point we mention being reminded this week that the health care portion of the budgetary crisis could have been avoided were it not for Bobby Jindal’s political posturing. That came up in Baton Rouge this week.
Bart Everson has an idea to ban cars from the French Quarter one day a week. We argue about that a little bit.
It’s Hurricane Season again. We talk about hurricane names and hurricane evacuations and generally our fondest hurricane memories.
Finn McCool’s (a bar that is relevant to Alli’s interests) has new owners.
Segment 2 (lasts about 30 minutes)
Steppin on Steppin Out: Varg eats a chili cheese fry burrito at Mutz (with an umlaut). Later he goes to Big Al’s Seafood in Houma which apparently sucked. Also he saw The Lobster at the Broad Theater and filed an on site report.
Alli went to New York City for a work thing. She also went to Georgia on a non-work thing. We all have tips for playing Geoguesser.
Jeff hasn’t been out on account of a smoking cessation project. He managed to make it to Greek Fest, though.
Also there are various TV reviews in this segment.
Recipe Minute: Alli describes making a greek chicken salad. Is interrupted frequently.
The Jivewire: (Sponsored this time by We Met In The Air Communications and Such)
And that’s it. Thanks for listening. Stay tuned after the closing theme for Varg’s on the street interview and movie review with Katie Leese at the Broad Theater.
