Rick and Cheri from the Life In A Kilt Podcast make a beer run. Cheri runs a red light and Rick drops and breaks an entire bottle of Highland Park scotch. ALL COMPLETELY SOBER. Maybe these two shouldn’t be allowed to purchase alcohol.
On Episode 43 of the Life In A Kilt Podcast, we’re with Dan Carroll of Dragon Con talking about all the fun history and events of this major convention. Make sure you come for a visit on Labor Day weekend! Check dragoncon.org for details. Back in the studio, Rick is missing an entire bottle of Scotch which makes him realize he’s going to have to learn to make his own Scotch when he is living off the land in Alaska. Rick can’t understand why someone would say they would never wear a kilt. Ever. What’s wrong with these people? Our music feature is “Unbroken” by kilt wearing rock god Dann Gunn. Check out more of Dann’s music on Bandcamp at https://danngunn.bandcamp.com. Our Live Beer Review is Little Sumpin’ Sumpin’ Ale by Lagunitas Brewing Company. Happy summer! Stay cool, friends!
A live version of this week’s music feature, “North Knoxville,” by Todd Steed and Friends. Kinda brings a tear to yer eye, don’t it? Go Vols!
We usher in Fathers Day with some of the best (worst?) Dad Jokes! You know you love them! Rick gets banned from taking photos in downtown Atlanta and starts pondering hair dye for his fast aging beard. Cheri decides that it’s sometimes okay not to wear a sporran or a belt with a kilt. Our music feature is a salute to Rick’s hometown by Todd Steed and the Suns of Phere with a song called “North Knoxville.” Our Live Beer Review bakes up some Banana Bread Beer by Wells Brewing. Don’t forget to subscribe and give us a review. Happy Da Day, mates!

Several new listeners have come aboard starting with Episode 41. A big welcome to everyone, both new and returning listeners. Thanks to Cheri’s job promotion, it’s a late night recording. Should podcasts be recorded at night? Rick has been using a great new app which records daily activities but, unfortunately requires detailed information about his… well… just let him tell the story. Cheri gives glowing reviews to the Wonder Woman movie then discusses the best and worst things about Renaissance Festivals. Rick tells a story about kilt rumors he suspects may be fake and then talks about cruel jokes now being played on teachers. To wake us up on a late night recording, our music feature is “Best Laid Mice” by The Coffee Sergeants from Austin, TX. Hear more of their music at https://coffeesergeants.bandcamp.com Speaking of coffee, our Live Beer Review is Sunset Coffee by Golden Road Brewing. Enjoy!
It’s Episode 40 and lots of new stuff going on in the podcast. Cheri got a big promotion at work and will now be in charge of buying all the beer for our reviews. Rick was involved in a very bizarre slow motion accident and lived to tell about it. Speaking of living, Rick has been tool shopping for the survival instruments he will need while living alone for a year in the Alaska wilderness. June is National Doughnut Month and, of course we have to discuss the delicious little treats. Unfortunately, no one brought any to the recording. We roll out a new Listener Challenge and start planning our Live Game Nights. Anyone up for playing with us? This week we feature “Pony Blues” by the Bluff City Backsliders. Check them out on BandCamp! We slice open a Juicy Watermelon Lime Ale by New Belgium Brewing Company for our Live Beer Review and hope Rick can keep it down.
Rick’s rather careless photography technique leads to a potentially compromising and embarrassing encounter with a complete stranger’s buttocks. Regardless, Rick maintains he is no perv! Discussion of the encounter turns into an examination of why we are turned on by specific body parts. Well, now, this could get interesting. One of Cheri’s friends has a celebrity encounter and it sounds like a lot of fun! Rick visits the local Goodwill store in a futile attempt to find a kilt treasure and wonders if anyone has ever gotten lucky with a thrift store kilt find. Cheri connects with a new entry in our Craigslist Missed Connections Listener Challenge. Speaking of missed connections, Rick tells of several celebrities who just missed out on getting the movie roles of their lives. Our music feature this week is “Strings” by MacKenzie. Hear more of MacKenzie’s music on BandCamp at https://mackenzie.bandcamp.com. Our Live Beer Review brings Christmas back with Back Home Gingerbread Stout by Golden Road Brewery. Thanks for listening friends! Please Subscribe and give us a review! Tell your friends about us!
Things are heating up here in Atlanta but Rick is well into his way of planning a cool-down with plans to live a year in Alaska. Looks like his plans are progressing but Cheri isn’t convinced he’s thought it all out well. It’s Mental Health month and Cheri and Rick spend some time discussing depression and their own experience with it. Our listener challenge has already produced a very capable first entry and we give it a read through. Take the challenge and send us yours! We still have lots of stickers so let us know if you’d like some. Our indie music section features “Make You Love Me” by Seth Timbs. He has lots more music on GarageBand so give him a listen. The Live Beer Review pours out a refreshing Toasted Lager by Blue Point Brewing. Sláinte!
