Professor Brad – Articles of Confederation

This episode Gustav is blessed to have Professor Brad join him for the second part of their rambling conversation which covers prostitution, environmental determinism, circumcision talk and the Articles of Confederation.

articles of confederation

Professor Brad is an award winning historian and author and Gustav of course is just a guy who thinks he knows stuff.  So it’s only natural for the two of them to discuss the possible merits for society of prostitution.  Then they misidentify the wrong historic Louisiana governor, but that’s not important, since they were on a roll.

Brad tries to lure Gustav into political talk, but instead they settle on discussing their general location on the current political spectrum which then turns into Articles of Confederation talk.    That leads to further discussion of socialism, democracy and libertarianism.

Gus asks if Brad remembered being as angry politically in his youth as the current landscape seems to be.  The idea that a president needs a “Bad Guy” adversary is postulated.

Discussing presidents brings up the idea of the winners in history not always having to answer for their own sins as great as the defeated must.  Gus and Brad discuss FDR’s internment camps as a prime example.

And then Brad yanks the wheel and we head into the ditch for circumcision talk which somehow leads to Brad dispelling environmental determinism.

Professor Brad – Dragon’s Lair

Since Heavy and Ty are still absent without leave, Gustave recruited Professor Brad to talk about movies, productivity, Dragon’s Lair and much more.   This week will be appearance one for Professor Brad in a special two week engagement.

Starting of Brad and Gus discuss all of Brad’s major awards as he is the only doctor on the Blowout Podcast Network, where he co-hosts the Below the Belt Podcast with his friend and smiley man Ryan.  Gustav then turns the discussion towards science fiction books and movies set or made before computers became what they are today.  That leads to a discussion about 2001: A Space Odyssey and the works of Stanley Kubrick, including A Clockwork Orange, The Shining and Eyes Wide Shut.  (In a glaring omission, Gustav fails to mention Kubrick’s Vietnam masterpiece, Full Metal Jacket, but he will discuss it in an upcoming episode that has since been recorded).

You can’t talk to Brad too long about anything without video games coming up.  So the discussion going from “arcades” of a certain type over to the classic Leisure Suit Larry mature themed video game series just seems natural.  That in turn bridges from the game mechanics of Sierra style games of the eighties to Gustav’s memories about failing at the classic eighties arcade game Dragon’s Lair.  Then Brad and Gustav discuss how they are both suffering from a perceived lack of productivity in their objectives.

City of Gustav – One Time Pads

Gustav delves into the world of Cryptography and the Cold war to talk about One Time Pads and mysterious Number Stations.  Due to scheduling conflicts and the time constraints of the holiday season, Gustav once again takes you into the rabbit hole of his mind to learn about espionage and gadgetry.

 

One time pads are means of creating a coded message that only can be deciphered if you have the corresponding copy of the one time pad.  Intelligence agencies used them throughout the Cold War in conjunction with mysterious radio transmissions on what the public nicknamed Number Stations.  Number stations broadcast on short wave frequencies and deliver one way messages to field operatives.

Once again, Megan from Megan’s Movie Podcast joins the boys to join in the fun.  After the initial tale of a trip to Dick’s Last Resort, Heavy takes control and leads the team into JFK talk.  The recent release of formerly classified files piqued his interest.  Both Heavy and Megan add family stories from the day of the  JFK assassination.

Arguing About Acreage

Returning for a third appearance Megan rejoins Ty, Heavy and Gustav to answer Twitter questions, be mansplained and listen to the boys arguing about acreage.  Super special guest Megan is the host of locally famous and regionally loved Megan’s Movie Podcast which can be found on the Blowout Podcast Network.

This week, Gustav put out the call for Twitter questions from the listeners for Megan.  But before that, he has to mention Simon and Simon and discuss the merits of the theme songs, as well as the Square Pegs theme song, and as Megan refers to it, the diarrhea song.

 

arguing about acreage

Long time friend of the show Valley Butcher asks about Haunted Houses.  Since they bully Megan, the boys just go about describing a local haunted house in their youth that was held at a condemned hospital.  That leads to arguing about acreage as Heavy estimates the size of the lot in his initial description and Ty and Gus challenge him on the lot size, while Megan sighs a lot and rolls her eyes.  Heavy also goes into stories of a local doctor that worked at the hospital and was a bit of a mad scientist.

Ranfill asks questions about at home nudity and Metallica albums.    Gustav offers up helpful tips about working from home.  Saint Tom asks Megan what the most “903” thing she has ever done was.  That leads to a discussion about Megan’s husband T.C.’s landmark moments involving a break in at his home he thwarted and his trapping of a wild hog to win $2000 from Bob and Dan on KTCK.  Then Heavy and Megan bond over vomiting stories.

It was great for Megan to join us once again and we look forward to future guest appearances.  Be sure to check out Megan’s Movie Podcast each Friday.

Whataburger Drive Thru

Once again Heavy, Ty and Gustav welcome back Megan Fleming to talk about a funny Whataburger Drive Thru story, circumcision, male behavior and much more.   Megan is the host of Megan’s Movie Podcast on the Blowout Podcast Network.  She’s been kind enough to have Gustav and Ty on as guests, but so far no Heavy appearance has been scheduled.

 

To get the ball rolling Heavy and Gustav discuss how their kids are starting to seek out the podcast and how it finally caught up with Gus.  Then Gustav shares some feedback from Down Under for their recent Bonsai tree episode.

Unlike last week, there is a concerted effort to actually allow Megan to talk.  Taking the floor, she wants to know “What’s up with guys?” and shares the tale about a disgusting co-worker.  Then she tells us all about how many dong pics her friend gets a day.    Talk about men leads to a discussion about circumcision and the impact that a parent’s decision may have on a young man’s future.

Ty and Heavy think back to the funniest Heavy story that there may have ever been and remember the time that Heavy turned a normal trip to the Whataburger Drive Thru into a night that they will never forget.  It’s one of their favorite stories and they are glad to finally get it down on tape for future humans to enjoy into perpetuity.  Gus shares another Heavy story involving some uncooperative valets.

It was great for Megan to join us once again and we look forward to future guest appearances.  Be sure to check out Megan’s Movie Podcast each Friday.

Daddy Bush and Pickled Things

Heavy, Gustav and Ty are thrilled to have Megan Fleming as a special guest this week to talk about Daddy Bush shenanigans and pickled foods.  Megan is the host of Megan’s Movie Podcast on the Blowout Podcast Network.  She has been kind enough to have Ty and Gus on as guests, but so far, no Heavy appearance has been allowed.

Ty tries to make Megan feel welcome by bringing a six pack of Modelo beer at the start of the session, but Megan was brown bagging tall boys and wasn’t having any of his attempts at hospitality.  Megan explains how she came up with her Twitter handle in a thrilling story.

Then she stands up and waves her feminist banner and rails against the misdeads of Daddy Bush, aka George Herbert Walker Bush, and the recent news stories of inappropriate touching and the David Copp-a-feel joke.   Emboldened by the mere mention of a political figure, Heavy jumps at the chance to go on a political rant.

Megan brought the three hooligans gift bags full of goodies.  In the bags were candies such as the Southern classic Cherry Mash as well as a wide variety of pickled items made by Megan and her mother and sister.  They have a company called Yims Foods which make all kinds of pickled goodies and jams.  The boys have questions about their offerings and Megan does her best even though they don’t let her speak much in this episode.

Pickle talk soon turns to grandma talk which invariably leads to punishment talk with tales of switches, flyswatters and even a hot wheel race track.  Then Megan shares tales of rice torture that shock the boys.  Then the old men tell about back when teachers gave swats at will and how the world was a better place.
