We record a day early this week due to SDCC. However, that doesn't stop us from trying another Jim Beam variety. This week is Ghost, which is what is known as a white whiskey. We rank it in comparison to the others, with differing opinions.
Lots of TV talk this week, and lots of bad movies were watched.
Check it out!
We continue our exploration of Jim Beam this week with their Black Label. Both Adrian and Jeigh and surprised by how much of an improvement the black label is over the white label. Current rankings is 1. Black. 2. White.
They also discuss their opinions on Spider-Man: Homecoming, with both of them ranking it a 6.5/10. They are looking forward to Spider-Man: Sadie Hawkins in the next years.
In July, we will be having a different release from Jim Beam each week, leading up to the one we enjoyed on the missing episode 216. This week, we start with the traditional Jim Beam. We also talk about some great comics, including Clue #1; The non-traditional release of Jay-Z's new album; the news the Costco will soon be serving burgers in their food court, and much more.
In this episode, we try out the new Blood Orange Barrel Finished Gin from Copperworks Distilling in Seattle, and it does not disappoint. According to Adrian, the same can't be said of the new Katy Perry album.
We enjoy a delicious maple porter from Backwoods Brewing Company. We also find that we have differing views on Wonder Woman, but are both pissed about Batman #24.
Due to some technical issues, we lost the original episode 216. It's too bad, because it was without a doubt the most amazing podcast episode in the last twenty years. We are back to regularly scheduled programming this week though, as we try our first mead: Viking Blod from Dansk Mjod.
Jeigh is convinced that they are living through Maximum Overdrive due to the number of technical mishaps that happen this week.
Neither of us care about horse racing, but decide to have mint juleps to celebrate the recent Kentucky Derby!
We recording this episode just a couple of days before Cinco de Mayo, so we celebrated the fake Mexican holiday by having a fake Mexican drink: Tequila Sunrises!
Jeigh talks about the Tekken comic mini-series, and Adrian talks about the cyclical nature of horror movies.
We try a Pineapple Rum from Plantation this week. I learned that this isn't just rum flavored with Pineapple, but that pineapple is actually used in the distilling process instead of cane sugar. Super fascinating, you should look into it.
Also, Jeigh gives talks about Supergirl: Being Super #3, Adrian talks about Iron Fist and his history of the Marvel/Netflix shows, and they both talk about a podcast called S-Town.
