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!
At the Georgia Renaissance Festival, Austin was the first person to come up and say “Hi” to us and tell us he listens to the podcast. So we gave him Life In A Kilt Podcast stickers and put his picture on our website.
INSTRUCTIONS: Go to your city’s local Craigslist classified ads and place a free ad in the “Missed Connections” section (The Missed Connections section is under the “Personals heading). The ad can be as creative as you would like but the ad should mention Life In A Kilt Podcast somewhere in the ad. We suggest you be entertaining, humorous or dramatic. After all, you want people to be interested in your ad and talk about it to others people and maybe even post it on their social media page. But the least you can do is make people giggle, so have fun with it. Please do not advertise or print anything illegal, slanderous, libelous or that may bring harm to others.
After publishing your ad, send us a link to it and we will show it to other listeners and read it on the podcast! Challenge expires when May 2017 expires.
REWARD: You may get a date.
Another one from this week’s music feature, The Dead Deads.
Rick has decided to move to remote Alaska for a year and live off the land. What?? Can he possibly be serious? Can a kilt wearer survive in -40 degree weather?? If he does do it, he’ll be taking along his new 100% wool Sport Kilt in the County Kilkenny, Ireland tartan. It’s awesome! Rick and Cheri discuss how they first met, which, strangely enough, also involves Alaska. Are there times when you should NEVER wear a kilt? We think we may have discovered a few occasions. See if you agree. We answer some listener email questions and start a new monthly feature on the show called the “Listener Challenge.” Do you accept this month’s Listener Challenge? Get on it then! This week’s musical feature is “Sympathy Sex” by The Dead Deads. Our Live Beer Review cracks open Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout by North Coast Brewing.
It’s a lazy, steamy summer day here in Atlanta. Only it isn’t summer yet. How do people move around in this heat?? Blah! Rick is feeling a bit cranky after losing an unsaved illustration to a rare computer crash. Lesson learned. Cheri updates us on her big date with the mysterious Ren Fair gentleman. No word yet on whether jousting was involved. Rick had a birthday full of Billys which let him know he isn’t the only one getting old. After a little month of May trivia, Cheri introduces a song from one of her favorite artists, Hamell On Trial. The song is “I Hate Your Kid” and we’re pretty sure it isn’t about any kids we know. Listen to more of Hamell On Trial at https://hamellontrial.bandcamp.com. The Live Beer Review pours out a beverage that is barely a beer out all and Rick and Cheri are quite divided on this one. It’s Wild Blue Blueberry Lager by Blue Dog Brewery. What do YOU think of it?
It’s episode 35 and just happens to be Rick’s birthday! Rick gives himself a big birthday present and then reads a list of the things he has finally decided to stop striving for now that he’s officially an old man. Cheri goes to the Ren Fair and comes back with… A DATE! What the heck? How did this happen?? The Life In A Kilt Podcast stickers have arrived and Rick and Cheri reveal how you can get yours for FREE! Rick discovers Stillwater Kilts has been making his dream kilt pins and promptly purchases a handful of them. Cheri talks about how clutter causes her to feel more depressed, which is very bad news, taking into consideration the state of the studio. We start our music feature on this episode with “Wrecker’s Den” by Three Finger Shot. You can hear more of their music at www.threefingershot.com. Our Live Beer Review brings us Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout by Duck Rabbit Brewery. Thanks for listening friends!
