EPISODE 245: IN THE TRENCHES

Hop in the trenches with us this week as we define the characteristics of a modern country song, finally get some justice for Stageline, raise awareness instead of actually doing something, call out wack-ass capitols, fly to ATX and get hassled by the TSA, fight the awkwardness of airplane seating and random traveling animals, take a less than super shuttle to a baller JW Marriot, pivot to a conversation about Texas SONS before grabbing a drink in one of the most gentrified house-bars downtown, and then meet tech hero, Kelsey Hightower. After that we’ll try to solve the mystery of a serial shitter in Colorado, attempt to bring a high-speed police chase to an end peacefully, and then devise a plan to long-con a bank robbery!
