Support Big Tails

Ty and Gustav are back for more fun as they talk about how they support big tails, brown drink and old albums as they answer listener emails and Snapchats.

Heavy is off hiding his scent from beavers, so Gus and Ty do their best to keep the machine going.   They start off by acknowledging once again the influence the boys over at the It’s Just Banter podcast (also known as IJB) had on them getting started a year and a half ago.  And once again they talk about the classic film  “The Conversation”  (if you haven’t seen it yet, you should stop and go watch it, then you’ll know why we are crazy about it.)

Ty lobbies for another appearance on Megan’s Movie Podcast and Gus reads some questions Megan sent in via Snapchat.  Ty and Gus are unanimous in their answer to Megan’s question.  Gus brings up a new argument against dinosaurs he saw on the internet and goes on record that he is someone who will support big tails.

Does the angle even work?

 

Ty remembers some cassettes he wore the printing off of back in jr. high and high school.  The boys list off classic albums like Keith Whitley’s Greatest Hits and Pronounced Lynyrd Skynyrd.  They also talk about the importance of a good B side back in the days of cassettes and vinyl.

Gus talks about tanning hides or the at least the failures of attempting to tan hides.  Ty tells about the time he went hunting before class once.  Enterstandman sends a thought provoking email.  Gus shows off a new toy.   Dan from Melbourne follows up some proper English discussion from episodes past.  Hernandez and Ernesto send in their questions/thoughts about brown drink for Ty.  And ValleyButcher asks about smells.

So send us your emails about dinosaurs, favorite smells, bourbon ,  or rifle cartridges to canyouhearmepod@gmail.com

Penchant for Crazy Women

Ty and Gustav discuss crazy women, small town radio, international listeners.  Heavy wandered off again so it’s just Gus, Ty and a bottle of brown drink as they stroll down  small town memory lane once again.

To get the ball rolling, they debate whether or not Ty’s glass of brown drink is either a tumbler or a high ball glass or some such.  Clearly neither of them knows what they are talking about, so if you would like to email us and explain how to tell glasses apart, we would welcome the feedback.

Once again Ty and Gus talk about the late 70’s/early 80’s comedy phenomenon of SCTV.  Here is the Michael McDonald impersonation by Rick Moranis that Gus mentions ( but Gus is definitely wrong about the type of car he’s driving):

Gus confesses that he knew Ty was the class comedian early on and Ty discusses his comedic influences and his own solo work at the time.

They discuss their experiences listening to and love of small town radio from days gone past.

Then things turn sort of serious as they discuss crazy women.  Particularly, they discuss a crazy girlfriend of Ty’s from high school.  The stories would be a public service episode to share with any teenage boy so that they can learn from Ty’s misspent youth.  They also explain the concept of the small town “Drag”

crazy women

Not Ty’s Ex-Girlfriend (as far as we know…)

Then Gus shares an email from one of their Australian listeners and that our international listener outreach is making progress.  Hopefully we will hear from more and more international voices.  And eventually Gus will get those t-shirts sent out.

So send us your emails about small town radio, crazy women, or glassware to canyouhearmepod@gmail.com

The North Texas Gas Crisis of 2017

The full crew is back to talk about hiding out, the North Texas Gas Crisis, hushpuppies, Comanches and much more.  Right off the bat they start off with Long John Silvers, hushpuppies and catfish restaurant talk (again).  But that doesn’t last long as Heavy attacks Gus and tries to blame him for the North Texas Gas Crisis of 2017.  Blame may be a strong word, but Heavy does believe Gus had a hand in it.  Heavy also recounts Gus and the global rice shortage many years ago.

north texas gas crisis

Gus once again stresses that everyone should have at least 72 hours worth of food and water on hand for an emergency situation.  That leads to a twitter question from Tell wondering what the boys would recommend to have with them if they had to go into hiding in West Texas.  Surprisingly enough, they don’t give a straight answer and they ultimately leave out a lot things.

Gus recalls alt-country/Americana singer/songwriter Kevin Welch’s song “Wilson’s Tracks”and from there Heavy talks about how he was a house guest in the Seattle area once upon a time.  That leads to a discussion about natural resources availability and the effect that scarcity had on whether or not Native American tribes established more stable settlements which led to increased population densities.  That leads to Gus mentioning the Japanese explorer/Zunni language hypothesis which will need to be further investigated.

Ty has been reading “The Empire of the Sun and the Moon” about the Comanche nation and that leads to a lot of discussion about Comanche raiding parties during the 1700’s and 1800’s.

Heavy talks about the response to Hurricane Harvey and ties back to the Eastern Bloc with a story about his friend’s Hungarian wife and her baked bean conundrum.

They finally get back to Tell’s question but they get hung up on the “Two is One, One is None” redundant equipment philosophy.

Mexican Internet

Once again Ray Ranfill joins Heavy and Gus to talk old movies, answer emails and debate the merits of ordering things off of the Mexican Internet.  Ty is busy doing “paperwork” once again, or possibly doing research for his new side project with Megan from Megan’s Movie Podcast where they analyze each and every line from Tootsie.

Gustav gets the ball rolling with a  field report from a pawn shop and offers up a little show and tell for the boys.  He also discusses the wide open nature of black powder pistols for those citizens who may not be able to legally purchase a cartridge firearm.

There is some highbrow grandstanding as Gustav brags about reading fancy books such as William Faulkner’s Sound and the Fury, but Heavy tries to keep him in check.

Jay responds to his own email about the fascinating world of Sun Truthers which Gus and Heavy had never even heard of before.

There is some talk about the American institute of trial by jury, Bitcoin and HBO’s classic series The Wire.

mexican internetAn email from KJ about hangovers leads the three to ask where you would you rather order IV solution from the Canadian Internet of the Mexican Internet and you really can’t pass that up for an episode name at that point.

Ray talks about how awesome he is at fantasy sports betting and the like.

Fake Bailey Jay takes the boys to task about some hot sports opinions about Uma Thurman in Kill Bill, which leads to a very disappointing conversation with Heavy and Jay about their opinions about the film.  But further discussion about Tarrantino’s work is more positive.

The movie talk leads Ray to ask about regretting showing your kids certain movies.  Gus tells about how he had his kids watch the unedited Blaxploitation classic “Cotton Comes to Harlem” and how he forgot a few jubblies that may have been left out of the edited version.  He also talks about the fun action comedy “True Lies”

Dopamine Hypothesis

Heavy, Gustav and special guest Ray Ranfill settle in for a slightly more serious episode where they make a few jokes, but mostly talk about the opioid epidemic and the dopamine hypothesis.  Once again Ty is busy doing “paperwork” but Ray was kind enough to stick around for another round of our nonsense.

Gustav jumps right out with another tale of things his kids say.  Then Heavy explains a little bit about Coors and how it worked into the plot of Smokey and the Bandit.   They follow up with some school days stories including eccentric algebra teachers, leaky roofs and flooded rooms.

The ghost of Clay is invoked once more.  He’s always with us all. Then Gustav makes a stand for the Waltons and is ready to fight Heavy about it.

Ray and Gus bond over their t-shirts based on IJB and Cirque du Sirois hosts.  You can’t mention t-shirts without talking about Heavy’s World Class Championship Wrestling t-shirt which leads to a brief conspiracy discussion about the death of the Yellow Rose David Von Erich in Japan.

Then Heavy brings up diarrhea from traveling in the third world and Gus talks about parasites for a while.  Then he talks at length about Toxoplasma gondii and how it may have a connection to schizophrenia.

dopamine hypothesisSomehow that changes to Heavy talking about the Dopamine Hypothesis and the idea that SSRI’s are not effective longterm.   This discussion leads to us tackling the opioid epidemic and alcohol detox symptoms.  Gus can’t talk about addiction deaths without touching back to the late great Townes Van Zandt’s final days.

Dirt Track

Join the guys for a special guest , a field report from the dirt track and much much more.  Since Ty is too busy with “paperwork”,  long time friend of the show Ray Ranfill was kind enough to join us.

Straight out of the gate, Gustav takes a stand against Grandy’s and recalls a special moment that he and Heavy shared many moons ago at a 903 area code Grandy’s. Then Gustav tries to establish some street cred with a story about how he frequents a  local taqueria.   And while he’s all hopped up on food talk, he rails against mixing corn into other dishes.

Matt’s fist full of cash he won at the dirt track

But the real focus of the show is the tale of Gus and Jay going to the Grayson County Speedway with Matt and St. Ginsburg.  Gustav was busy taking notes and asking long time racing enthusiast Jay questi0ns.  It was a fun night and Matt even won money!  But going back to food, Gus offers hot sports opinions about “the walking taco”

Once again Gus brainstorms about a Greyhound bus trip and dreams of the possibilities for the show.  It will probably never happen, but if it does, then you will hear all about it.  Then Gus drifts into talk about FarmAid 92 and how he hopes to do an entire Farm Aid episode some time in the future.

What is a Yankee?

Heavy, Ty and Gustav are back to answer emails, Twitter questions and have Heavy tell us what is a yankee.

Right off the bat, we apologize for some technical difficulties that we encountered during the editing of this episode.  We will try to do better moving forward, but we say that to the women in our lives, so don’t hold your breath.

For this episode, we put out the call to the listeners for emails and Twitter questions and once again you did not disappoint.  Except for Fake Bailey Jay who continues to disappoint us by not joining us in person.

Steve from Baltimore sent in a great email asking about what it means to be a Texan.  That leads Heavy to climb upon his soapbox, start pulling out maps and to try and get Ty and Gus to read some pamphlets he’s been working on.  That leads to Gus and Ty asking Heavy “What is a Yankee?”  That leads to it’s own lecture and once he is done, you will all be clear on his criteria.

mason-dixon line

Aaron , Tom and Fake Sports Bot send a ton of Twitter questions ranging from cigarettes, lawyers, gold, and topical tropical islands.

Gus has a show and tell with some recent additions to his vintage record collection.

Then the audio problem interrupts the guys having some serious old man talk.  And to further derail the good times, Heavy starts talking about politics in the 903 area code.
