Podcast: Halloween treats

1984 Brochure outside

It’s always a treat when Leah joins us on podcast day: We had fun recalling Lauren and Leah’s dad’s appearance on The Colbert Report 11 years ago. Wow. I’d completely forgotten about how I was the only one not to receive an autographed photo … sigh. Our webcam is back online, in case you need…

Podcast: Promises Kept

Leah - Golden Ticket Award

I won’t ruin the surprise, but a promise made long ago (and repeatedly) was finally kept this morning … The Golden Ticket Awards were held last weekend in Connecticut.

Podcast: Phone a Friend

As you may know, Leah Koch has been missing from the podcast for nearly every episode over the better part of a year. First it was because she was working on her MBA at Indiana University and now … a big-city internship. And so, we rang her up at her – gasp! – non-air-conditioned dwelling…

Podcast: Food Fight!

It’s hard to miss the irony behind this episode’s topic being Food … and yet there was nothing to sample. Not a crumb. Rentz kept twitching, thinking the door was about to burst open, with Justin bounding in with goodies. You know, like this: That’s Justin with a Giant Sub Sandwich, which will be on…

Podcast: Christmas Crazies

With Christmas fast approaching, we recorded our final podcast episode of the year today. The PodSquad doesn’t quite catch the brilliance of Turkey Lurkey Time.

Podcast: The Moose Out Front

We’ve made it to Episode 014 and are heading into our second half-year of podcasting! (That bit of non-math makes me think of when you have a baby and at first you keep track of age by days, then weeks, months and finally years. It’s a process.) We have many graphics to share this time…

Podcast: The one with the Conqueror

It’s podcast day! As always, here are some illustrations from our hour or so of silliness: First of all, to celebrate our thirteenth episode, we snacked on some new treats that will appear on the SmokeHouse menu for Happy Halloween Weekends: Fried Apple Pie Bites and … … Bread Pudding Bites (above). Needless to say,…

A rainy-day podcast

After having all too much fun creating our own podcast this spring, we got a call (a tweet, actually) from Zach and Noah at the Evansville Courier & Press. It seems they have a podcast, too. Called Canvass, it’s usually filled with politics and the latest opinions about breaking news stories. But with the start…
