The Accidental Hour


In a departure from format, we headed out for a beer and a short Driveway Update. An hour later, we had a show about solar panels, beer and our European vacation. Presented with only the most minimal of editing.

  • Live from the Draught House
  • Leaving for the expo
  • Podcast Expo “appearancess”
  • Driveway Update: shaving the driveway, sharing the residue, unexpected paver arrival
  • Beautiful day in the neighborhood: tallboy, solar panels, wind power in west Texas
  • Speaking of beer: Maredsous number 8, Dogfish Head pumpkin ale, Chimay, Hoegarden, Lindeman’s fruit beers, Franziskaner
  • Segueing into our European vacation: honor system beer, mellow times in Bruges, walking the canals, “beer museum”, eating at the after hours place, and more

The Pod That Refreshes



We take a really long look at the new iPods, plus the latest from the driveway, the lightning round and the listener mail bucket.
