Episode LXI

Shek and Feeney start the show discussing the groove they’ve gotten into. The gang plays another round of “Let’s Read Dameshek’s Tweets”. Feeney recalls the time Penny Marshall was hitting on him. The guys also recall their favorite moments from Laverne & Shirley. Shek talks about going on Carolla’s show, and he and Jacuzzi Pete try to figure out why Feeney didn’t join. The guys also listen to a new fan submitted song, discuss last week’s Okie Dokies, and try to decide what the back of their t-shirt should say. On today’s show, special guest and “beer scholar” Ian Cheesman joins the program. He’s a beer critic for TheSmokingJacket.com, and he reached out to JP to get the guys’ thoughts on different types of brew. The guys discuss the “epidemic of beer snobbery” and reflect on their favorite times getting drunk. Feeney recites a Bukowski poem from memory, and wrapping things up, Shek gives his evaluations of the Sierra Nevada line.


Episode LIX

Today’s episode is on the road, as Dameshek and Jacuzzi Pete are en route to pick up Feeney at the car dealership. The guys chat about their delicious hamburger (and hot dog) lunch, and greet Feeney at their first stop. Feeney talks about Jennifer moving into his apartment, and teases Shek about one of his co-hosts on the NFL network. As JP makes his way to the grocery store, the guys catch up on their holiday breaks and consider how to make their show about more than just “nothing”. The guys also look around Pete’s car, and Feeney takes a look at JP’s grocery list, which turns out to be rather bizarre. While Pete’s at the store, Shek explains the way to make the perfect steak. The guys also chat about the embarrassment of buying tampons, and Feeney recalls getting attacked when he worked as a stock boy. Shek recalls his own experience fighting back against a bully, which thankfully didn’t result in him getting his ass kicked. The guys reflect on their Farmers Market episode, and Feeney’s drunken night that followed. Shek also reveals the only player he could think of that wore #59, and even though the Shekies aren’t until next week, Feeney announces his choice for best film of 2010. In the final moments of the show, the guys tease JP about joining the Muslim faith, and announce their predictions for the weekend’s NFL Playoff games.
