The guys spend most of the 20th episode answering listener emails and going off on tangents about trough urinals, ice milk and race relations. The episode was originally recorded back in June, several weeks before the unfortunate events in Dallas on July 7th. One of this episode’s topics is how big a change desegregation was for the South and how just two generations removed from those times, the children of today think the idea of segregation sounds ridiculous. The guys point out that the Nation has come a long way, but there are still obviously problems that still need to be worked through.
But for the most part this episode is like all the others, which means it is full of random thoughts, weird stories and a fair amount of nut kicking. The Crandyman proposes that a local dirt track may have sent a copperhead strike force to the Monteblanc homestead and offers up another “White Couch” type of story that he heard in his youth. Our West Texas Rancher shares a game changing idea for the strip club operators of the world and Pretty Little Nurse points out that she has some dating competition in her new West Coast town. Heavy actually offers up some solid dating advice for her.
All of these emails lead the boys down multiple rabbit trails, which isn’t any different than any other episode. Gustav and Ty recall their summer job working for the school district. During those summers, Gustav got stuck removing 70 year old trough urinals while Ty pointed out that his crew where taking naps.
Gustav describes the music that he created and sent to the Below the Belt Podcast and describes it as horrid. Below the Belt is a Mixed Martial Arts/History podcast that the guys are big fans of. In the course of talking about Below the Belt, Gustav tells the story of how he was faced with sparring a 12 year old punk in Kendo class and how things escalated. Hopefully, we will soon be able to get the Below the Belt guys on as guests or vice versa.
As mentioned earlier, the gang talks about how much has changed since our hometown was desegregated in the early sixties. This leads the guys off on a discussion about post-colonial Africa and the current scramble for resources and influences that the U.S.A. and Europe are in with China.
