86 - The Fast Food Episode

This episode took a while to publish because the guys spend the last week standing in line at Popeye’s. JD couldn’t make this episode because he is still in line. We didn’t have the heart to tell him they’re sold out.

It is no secret that the guys like to talk about food…a lot. So they decided to use this episode to feature some recent fast food stories. This week they discuss the reopening of Rally's/Checkers, New Age Chicken, Milo's in Cahaba Heights, and Dat Dog coming to Bham.

Patrick and Blake showed up at the Lumbar ready to record only to discover some funny-looking bald guy sitting in our recording space. After a heated argument with the gentleman, Patrick and Blake realized it was their long lost co-host Matthew Joiner. He had been stranded in a building downtown with nothing but his computer and a Volleyball named Spaulding to keep him company. We are so happy he found us! We will be slowly reintroducing him into the podcast world. Welcome back to the show, Matt!

81 - Paternity and Points

We are back after going on a little bit of a paternity break. Blake and his family welcomed a new baby girl into their family on May 24th so we thought he should be given plenty of time pitch in on the feeding, changing of diapers, and generally not sleeping. Now that things are less hectic at the Westbrook house, we thought we would bring you a new episode just in time for your 4th of July break. The 81st episode features an interview with Syndey Unruh of Pointz. If you are not familiar with Pointz, it is an app that rewards you for spending time at local places!
