It's our Mother's Day special! Our mom joins us for a discussion of her "Weird Al" song of choice - "Tacky." Listen as we have a fun conversation about the song, how mom has "done almost everything" in the song, an Italian restaurant with questionable ties, and so much more!
John has a tiny beautiful something by Maine Beer Company AND Devil's Milk from DuClaw Brewing Company. Lauren has Glitter Moon from Revision Brewing Company AND Sea Quench from Dogfish Head. Mom has Fat Elvis by Central Waters Brewing company AND Purple Tooth by Fair State Brewing Cooperative. Cheers!

Have you ever been "Stuck in a Closet with Vanna White"? Because that's what we're talking about today! John has an AMAZING theory, and we discuss who we wouldn't mind being stuck in a closet with. Listen in for that and SO MUCH MORE.
John has Double Mind Haze from Firestone Walker Brewing Company and Lauren has Powder Dreams (Dry Hopped with Mosaic Lupulin Powder, Cascade, Centennial, & Zeus Hops) by Captain Lawrence Brewing Company. Cheers!

Lauren is joined by Michael J Maione from the MICRO BREAK Podcast this week. You can usually hear Michael in "15 minutes or less," but we go on for quite a while here... So I'm calling this your Macro Break! This is a delightful and fun conversation where we talk about beer, Weird Al (and what kind of impact he's had on us and the world), and we do VOICES (because that's what we do). Cheers!

"I Remember Larry," but do YOU remember Larry? We're tackling this brilliant original from Al's 1996 Bad Hair Day album this week. We also delve into some music discussion, sponges, pranks (April Fools!), knockoff Bugs Bunny Beatles, BACKWARDS LYRICS!, spaghetti casserole, and so much more! Listen to find out how YOU (yes YOU!) can win a Beer'd Al pint glass of your very own!
Lauren has When the Lights Go Out from Sun King, and John has Tripel Dog Dare from Great Lakes... AND Hazy-O from Dogfish Head (because it's been too long since he talked about Delaware).
*Disclaimer - When John says "a year ago" he means early March 2020.

It's MARCH WEIRDNESS!
This week Lauren & John are joined by the effervescent Chris Hollister (of Trivial Warfare fame and glory) and Bob Oakes (another branch of the mighty Oakes tree) to do a completely subjective "Weird Al" album bracket! Our seeding is based off of our personal album rankings... but there are some surprises along the way!
This episode also features a tribute to "Weird Al" from David of the Piecing It Together Podcast. Check him out at http://www.piecingpod.com
