Episode 67 – Happy Absinthe Day!

Sun, 05 Mar 2017 08:01:51 +0000

So, we didn’t plan on releasing this on Absinthe Day, it just turned out that way. But Happy Absinthe Day nonetheless! Jerry’s friend and podcaster partner from Only Acceptably Real Podcast ( joins in this special episode to tell about his first experiences with absinthe, which is recent since Jerry gave him his first bottle […]

Episode 66

Sun, 30 Oct 2016 06:09:41 +0000

It’s astounding. Time is fleeting. We’ve put out a new podcast episode! Dan and Jerry discuss changing tastes in absinthe, then go on for almost AN HOUR about new vs. old Rocky Horror Picture Show. We both agree that Ivy Levan (who we hereby deem our honorary Absinthe Fairy for 2016) absolutely stole the show […]

Episode 65

Sat, 28 Mar 2015 05:57:04 +0000

Being that we’re nearly a full year late with this episode, this is undoubtedly old news now. but Jerry and Dan were shocked when the price of Kubler almost doubled and Jerry was determined to find out why. He did find out why, directly from Kubler, and his findings are faithfully reported in this episode. […]

Episode 63

Sat, 08 Mar 2014 20:47:44 +0000

And here we are, 15 months later, with a new episode. We discuss Heritage absinthe; Dan admits the sin of “Fireball;” Jerry discusses his love for Jagermeister and other things that taste like medicine (including medicine). The boys talk about absinthe gone bad. Also they admit the world didn’t end, and pretty much try and […]

Episode 62

Wed, 19 Dec 2012 05:09:07 +0000

Oh my goodness, can you believe it? A new episode? Yes! And just in time too … squeaking in one last podcast before the end of the world. Jerry gives his rather inept review of Leopold Bros. Absinthe Verte, and then does something unorthodox with it. Dan reciprocates and does something blasphemous with his absinthe as well, thus giving […]

Episode 59

Wed, 06 Jun 2012 03:29:59 +0000

Three absinthe reviews in this episode! Three. And an endorsement for using Jaegermeister as actual medicine. Jerry tells the tale he’s probably told before about how Jaeger was used as a miracle cure in San Dimas, California, back in the late 1980’s. You can safely say that, as much as the last episode barely had anything to […]

Episode 58

Mon, 21 May 2012 00:55:45 +0000

There are some episodes that are all about absinthe, and then there are episodes that are mainly about things which might be of interest to people who are into absinthe. This episode falls into the latter of the two of these categories. Dan and I both use a machine called a CPAP, and if you […]

If Alanis Morissette came out with her own brand of absinthe, we have the marketing all ready for her… We thank the Wormwood Society for the warm welcome! Dan can’t wait to meet everyone this summer, and Jerry can’t wait to hear all about it. Jerry discovers he has a 9 hour layover at Heathrow […]

Sat, 17 Mar 2012 09:26:12 +0000

This episode was recorded on March 13th, right before we joined the Wormwood Society — and even though it’s being released on St. Patricks Day, has nothing to do with said holiday. Which is a shame, because what better green drink to drink on this green day? Jerry gives his impression of Amerique 1912 Verte, […]

Mon, 05 Mar 2012 08:00:46 +0000

Happy Absinthe Day everyone! Besides talking about SuperFocus glasses, the Monkees Mobile, and the awesomely talented Julia Nunes, this episode is heavily laced with Absinthe information and reviews – and rightly so, considering this is the 7th anniversary of the re-legalization of absinthe in the United States.

First and foremost, we’d love to thank our new sponsor, Superfocus! Dan and Jerry are as excited as kids about to get a cool new toy. Because … well, they are. They each get a set of the glasses.

What if Ebenezer Scrooge had been drinking absinthe right before seeing the Christmas ghosts? What a concept … too bad we didn’t remember to talk about it during this episode.

Between Jerry moving and Dan having an operation, we had an unscheduled hiatus — but we’re back, and this episode is an experiment.

Sun, 21 Aug 2011 15:53:11 +0000

Very absinthe-centric, this one is. Dan scored three types of absinthe that he’d never tried before and uncorked and sampled them during the recording. Jerry also had scored a bottle the day before of one new to him, and he and their mutual friend Pat gave their impressions. Not all the absinthes sampled were hits. […]

Just by pure chance Jerry received a text message asking for absinthe advice (much like he so often sends to Dan) while they were recording this episode … and that gave Dan an idea.

Send lawyers, guns, and absinthe … Dan and I may have gotten ourselves into trouble with this one.
