A very special mega-sized episode! Sonoma County comedians Steve Ausburne and Casey Williams are happy to be back. Steve says he won’t sing anymore. We’ll see how that lasts. The beauty of the percent sign is broken down. The boys compare Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney’s hit Ebony and Ivory to the friction between Android and iPhone users. Tragedy struck last week as Steve was stuck in “Top Stories” on his Facebook newsfeed for an entire day. Class election stories are traded. Eventually the whiskey is tasted (around minute 30) and they re-cast The Golden Girls in a new feature film. The triumphant return of New York Seltzer is lauded. Another victory for the gay community last week as Casey gets an Email from one of his son’s teachers. Casey talks about his Norwegian Getaway Cruise and cruise-people problems. Too Close for Comfort comes up so naturally that segues into Knight Rider. Obviously both Michael Knight and Garth Algar are cast as Batman in various scenarios. More whiskey! Spandau Ballet is featured in a “Where are They Now” segment that goes nowhere but into a discussion on one hit wonders. Ever wonder how to smoke an ice ball? The architects of the Death Star are taken to task while The Galactic Empire is compared to The Brits in their invasion techniques. Water Slides: Are they Fun? Casey shares a story of how he cheated death at Atlantis in the Bahamas, and Steve one-ups him with his mad Contra skills.

On the Road! Steve & Casey hit the road to their gig in Sacramento. NO WHISKEY this time. A bold move for ep 2 of a whiskey themed pocast. Like if on #2, Happy Days said "Let's try one without the Fonz...". Audio on this one is a little rough. Turns out whiskey barrels don't handle well on the freeway.
