episode 26 – napster, nietzsche, 500 hours of learning & the existence god – a conversation with tj krusinski

tj

before tj came by the S&gC studios we had never really “hung out” with him. to say this dude is impressive would be an understatement. he’s smart, exceedingly well read, funny & he brought scotch with him. we ended up talking & drinking for over an hour & a half. among a ton of other things we cover downloading music, cats vs. dogs, our mutual love of interesting socks, nietzsche & the existence of god.

big thanks to tj for spending time with us.

episode 25 – day drinking, wilson pickett, sushi & the death of tori amos – a conversation with al ruiz

1005458_10209377062408988_2785651911528741926_n

al ruiz is cool. he’s one of those guys who doesn’t realize how cool he is because he just wanders through life being cool. he hangs out, he makes sushi in one of the best food trucks in orlando & he plays some truly ass shaking garage soul. al was nice enough to come hang out & do some day drinking with us. besides the normal stuff we cover interesting scars, first loves, the importance of not being a dick & our buddy jacob kaplan. it was a decent way to spend a weekday afternoon.

big, big thanks to al for drinking with us.

12800378_10209311728335677_5859002005479654422_n

michael “tipso” lothrop is a bit of a renaissance man. he plays drums, he takes photos, he publishes books & he’s crazy active in his community. he’s just pretty much all kinds of awesome. in episode 24 of S&gC we discuss the mystery of his blond hair & red beard, the origin of his nickname, his two self published books, the complexities of limp bizkit lyrics, taking a shower with shaquille o’neal & a whole bunch more.

1918196_10209241073769357_8299224832592033964_n

danny walked into the S&gC studio carrying a small jar that we later found out contained human brains & thats not the most interesting thing that happened on this episode. between his music project amigo the devil, his job as a brewer at orlando’s best craft beer bar, redlight redlight & his self-proclaimed love of oddities, he was high on our list of folks we wanted to get on the podcast. in this episode we talk music, orlando culture, brains in a jar & we even get him to preform a song.

episode 21 – motherhood, nursing, harry potter & throwing up on my front lawn – a conversation with carrie mask

12715799_10209138228598292_3541060653686235659_n

this was a fun one. i’ve known carrie for 8 or 9 years & this is by far the longest, one on one conversation we’ve ever had. we’ve hung out plenty of times but usually it’s in a group setting. it was cool to spend an hour really talking. in this episode we cover everything from harry potter to assisting in surgery to my minor faux at her wedding (also known as my 40th birthday).

fun fact. this episode holds the record for the least amount of editing needed. carrie is good at podcasting.

big thanks to carrie for hanging out.

episode 20 – a growler of beer, 2 fingers of scotch, alkaline trio & tending bar – a conversation with larry foor

12705764_10209086761311642_6293806282663811211_n

larry foor being on our podcast was a result of a happy accident. after an afternoon of sunday drinking we mistakenly hugged him thinking he was our buddy john fortson (from episode 6). long story short, a few weeks later he was sitting in our guest seat & we drank some of his freshly brewed beer from cask & larder. in this episode we talk about a mutual love of alkaline trio, the pros & cons of “working for the man” & of course, we talk about beer.

big thanks to larry for hanging out & the beer.

episode 19 – wine, small town living, the 3am friend & god – a conversation with dana madich-meyer

dana

so, sometimes you go to school with someone from seventh grade, all the way through high school & then you lose touch with them. thirty years later you find out they’ve live in the same town as you. what do you do? answer, you ask them to be on your podcast & find out what they’ve been up to. its been a long time since we talked to dana. she’s pretty much the same, funny, beautiful, bubbly & always smiling. in this episode we cover growing up in a small town, travel, religion, friendships & a whole bunch more.

big thanks to dana for hanging out with us.

12573787_10208983308965398_841856748335511528_n

dana roquemore is probably one of the busiest people in orlando. between doing personal styling, being the co-founder of one orlando’s hottest vintage companies, other peoples property & her newest venture, the dinner party project it’s a wonder she has time to sleep (much less time to come podcast with us). in episode 18 of S&gC we cover all things orlando, the art of public speaking & we try to figure if “toast” can be a meal.

if you’ve been in orlando florida for any decent amount of time, odds are you’ve run into eddie. there’s also a better than average change he made you laugh. a fixture in the orlando music scene for the last 30 or so years, eddie is quick with a joke, enjoys a pun & has no shortage of good stories. in episode 17 we talk tons of music, 60s films, fashion & fatherhood. also for some reason we touch on patrick demises movie career. it’s always nice to talk with eddie.
