Sode #22: Drunk Cast- Part 1 (Bonus 03)

October 06, 2008 By: Meg Category: Party, Season 2, Sodes Comments Off on Sode #22: Drunk Cast- Part 1 (Bonus 03)

NEWS: Reminder that the Secret Code Contest entries are due by October 17th!


This episode is our response to Radio Free Hipster‘s “September is Drunken Podcasting Month”.  Therefore, our warm-up included:

  • 4 22-oz beers
  • Lots of Rumplemintz
  • Several Meghan-tini’s
  • Jagermeister
  • Eagle Reserve Whiskey

We attempted to have this be Drunken Podcasting, not wasted Podcasting, but one of us utterly failed.  (Hint- it was Meg)

As a result, before listening, read the following warning:

This episode is NOT a normal episode.  There is actually VERY LITTLE gaming discussion and an overabundance of hanky-panky talk.  The subtitle of this episode should be “Jesus Likes Anal”.  If that turns you off, you may not want to listen.  Fair warning.

Also, this show has little editing.  We left in some of the mistakes and re-records on purpose.  A LOT was cut though.  Mostly because it was just TOO off topic but also a lot more that was far too sexual and personal.  We may put those clips together or the full thing for some secret bonus prize at some point.  If you’d like to hear the entire thing, let us know!


Our favorite fake holidays:

Before recording we had planned to talk about Talk Like a Pirate Day as it too was in September but … well… drunk, remember?

Main Topic:

Drinking while Gaming.  This is the first 1/10th  of the conversation.  We started to talk about drinking at conventions but didn’t really get anywhere with it.

Random Plugs:

Reminder- we put show updates and random goodies on Meg’s Twitter. Don’t miss out!  She twittered while recording as well so go back and check them out!
