Angela Lansbury Was Not That Bad

Once again KaJay Randill joins Heavy and Gustav to answer emails and listen to Gus claim Angela Lansbury was something in her day.    There is still no sign of Ty so KaJay Randill pulled our bacon out of the fire and kept Heavy and Gus from talking bonsai trees for an hour.  They try to be funny and ask non-sports Gus about his favorite sports documentaries.

Gustav recounts the boys at It’s Just Banter’s recent guest episode with Throatzilla, noted celebrity fellatio expert.    Then they open up the mail bag and answer ancient emails from four months ago.  Topical is never and adjective to describe Can You Hear Me.  Long time contributor and master of the flashlight and the  Voltron formation, Cody emails with a solid Halloween themed series of questions about costumes and candies and more.  Tell delves into the world of pumpkin chunkin in his email.  A new emailer tells us how science did the rest.

The boys discuss the best Don based on a series of tweets that AWOL Ty is a part of including Don Cornelius, Don Adams and Don Knotts.

angela lansbury youngGus just can’t help himself and he makes a stand on the relative hotness of Angela Lansbury in her youthful starlet days and then  he makes a very dad joke.

Heavy and Gus recount one of the roughest concerts they ever went to, which happened to be a Willie Nelson concert in Lubbock, TX in 1994 (although it could have been fall of 1993 and Gus just can’t quite pin it down.).

 

Let us know who you think the best Don is, or tell us about your crappy costumes of your childhood, or send us you sexy adult costume ideas or your favorite Halloween candy to  canyouhearmepod@gmail.com

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.

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.

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.

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.

 

If you would like the guys to talk in earnest about emergency preparedness or if you just want us to keep flitting from one topic to the next, email us at CanYouHearMePod@gmail.com

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.

Also be sure to check out Ty’s guest appearance on Megan’s Movie Podcast where they discuss The Breakfast Club.  Who knows how much longer till Ty and Megan start their own Peaches and Herb cover band.

America’s Favorite

Ty and Gustav are back with a myriad of topics and an unfortunate claim from someone that they are America’s Favorite.  Things get heated early on as Gustav must defend the comments he made about climate change back during the Professor Brad guest appearance.

america's favorite podcast

Things settle down for a little bit of moccasin talk.  Gus delivers an update on a prominent moccasin manufacturer’s omission of  classic style and then espouses the best traditional moccasin for walking around on rocks.

Alt-Country performer Nikki Lane has been getting some airplay so that reminds Ty and Gus of the time that she met Heavy Longmire at the Old 97’s County Fair.

The boys then turn to talk about scorpions and they wonder about their decline in the 903 compared to when they were youngsters back in the seventies and eighties.  Scorpion talk naturally leads to a discussion about 1981’s “The Clash of the Titans”  and some thrilling moments as they look up names of actresses on their phones.

Willie Nelson and Family’s music festival at Starplex is then discussed as well as the stances of lawn or seats.

Gus recounts the one testical bear trap story for anyone who may have missed it the first time he told it.

Ty discusses his first bout with acid reflux and how Copenhagen and cheap beer subsequently affected it.

John Prine was just discovered by Ty so they talk about that even though Gus got Heavy listening to him back in high school.

And Gus updates us with a surge in listeners in Virginia and everyone agrees that Virginia is for Lovers.

Foreign Listeners

The Can You Hear Me boys are back with a mish mash of mustache talk, a mystery, thoughts on the S-Town podcast, Gustav’s report on foreign listeners and emails from the faithful.

To get things going Gustav reveals a mystery that he has encountered recently.  Heavy and Ty do their best to get to the bottom of problem.

Then they discuss the wildly popular S-Town podcast and how close to home it feels to the 903 area code, where the guys were born and raised.  They also discuss some of the problems that they identified with the podcast.

Somehow they get onto mustache talk, partly brought on by a recent spell of Gene Shalit jokes.  Gene was the mustachioed film critic for NBC’s Today show for years and not0rious for bad pun

foreign listeners can you hear me

s and sometimes questionable reviews.

Long time listener Fake Bailey Jay has a couple of emails chastising Gustav for possible inaccuracies and omissions.

Touching back on the previous misogynistic discussion about female singers of the seventies and eighties, Gustav brings up one the sisters from Heart and Ty ties it all back to the mountain climber game on the Price is Right.

 

Gustav has an interesting report on a recent upsurge in foreign listeners of Can You Hear Me.  The new hotbeds for Can You Hear Me downloads outside the U.S. are Japan and Germany.  Heavy has a theory why but Gus just wants to know who these people are and why they listen to the ramblings of educated hillbillies.

They also have a new female listener who sends in a t-shirt idea and is currently trying to make her way through the entire back catalog of episodes.
