CSA Episode 166 - "A Few Stories as the Year Ends..."

On tonight's episode, the last one for 2010, Maqz and T Fab P touch on a variety of subjects. Starting with an update about super beers, tactical nuclear penguin is challenged by three newer brews in Europe -The End of History, Start the Future, and Sink the Bismark. They also discuss why there are no American super beers - US regulations, and the time and money being too much. They then ask the most basic question, is it beer? Next up they move to Wikileaks, is it about power and the fact that they have been somewhat uncomfortable with Assange. Next is a Facebook story or two - a school committee attempts to regulate social media use by its teachers and then a Facebook racist rant by kids football coach and discussion as to whether he should be fired? We do a segment of "What's buggin Maqz as he relates a story about a football player who dropped a pass and then blamed God in his tweet. We didn't even know God was on Twitter. Wonder what his name is there Almighty_being? Be-all_and_end_all? The final three stories of the year are about a new iPhone app that is very scary and a Scandinavian author who came out very strongly about pirating material off the internet until her 10 year old pointed out she stole MP3's for her iPod, and the recent discovery through DNA testing that Ozzie Osborne has Neanderthal genes. Who would have guessed that huh?

CSA The Deep End-Episode 12: Guess Who's Coming to Dinner

In a bit of a break from the regular Deep End, tonight Maqz and T Fab P invite Denali into the booth to discuss one of those age old conversation starters - If you could invite anyone to a dinner, what three people would you invite. This leads to a rollicking discussion about politics and philosophy and sports and sexism and you get the idea. Sit back and hold on for quite a ride...

CSA Episode 165 - "It's unbelievable to me"

In a tip of the cap to Scott of Total Talk Nonsense, tonight the boys go at a few things that they just find unbelievable - Maqz' three Thanksgiving dinners, John Boehner's tobacco check give away on the floor of the house in 1995, the study that found emergency room use goes up when the weather gets colder...and when the weather gets warmer, the "not a jealous boyfriend" state representative with a gun in his pocket, the professor caught using a text book practice test, who accuses his students of cheating because they studied from the practice test, Maqz trying to give T Fab P a cold through the interweb tubes, the TSA claim that they want inconsistency in their airport security, and end with a Maqz rant, yelling at "The Clown" for being a multi-billion dollar company trying to make him feel guilty and forcing him to donate a dollar after they have sold like a trillion hamburgers. Well, the whole thing is a mouthful and the boys enjoyed doing it for you. And again thanks to Scott of Total Talk Nonsense for the inspiration for the title...

CSA Episode 164 - "The CSA Podcast without a name..."

In this "bonus" episode of CSA, Maqz starts off giving T Fab P a quiz about what the people of the United States "know" and both are shocked, shocked at the numbers. This includes the oil spill, inflation, unemployment, the deficit, the new Speaker of the House, and defense spending. This moves to discussion of Senator Kyl being a dick about National Security. Next up is the creation of anti-matter at CERN and storage. Then it is onto the TSA and all the abuses that are being reported and the boys give it their usual best in discussing the merits and failures of this as a rights issue. Then they have a BIG ending of light humorous and funny internet stories.

Our Podcast is best enjoyed while drinking Montazuma Wines - We recommend the Cranberry Bog!
