Episode 41: The Pecan Waffle At The End Of The World

The Hunker Downcast

Release Date: 12/10/2017

What if you could go back in time. One week. What would you do differently?  What would you say differently on your podcast, for example? Some of us are about to find that out as this episode goes up one week after it was recorded. (Sorry, Tim en em. Things happen.  When we set up a Patreon or something, we’ll crank these out faster.)

Segment 1 (approximately 1 hour)

ANYWAY, how was your Thanksgiving? Ours was great/shitty/phony.  And then we watched the Republican tax bill destroy the world as we know it.   Now that the GOP has everything they want, do they even need Trump anymore?  Tim seems to think he’ll be forced out sooner than we do.

What do we do next?  Do we take to the streets? Do we take a nap on the job? Do we figure out ways to take down the political establishment? How do we cook the waffle before it cooks us?

In local politics, the election is over but Seth Bloom is still a douchebag and LaToya wants to Airbnb the hell out of everybody. Which bridge will Jeff have to live under?

SOSO (approximately 1 hour)

Lance listens to a bunch of podcasts and sees Primus at the Civic.

Alli visits the High Museum in Atlanta, goes to the Cook-Off For The Coast in Violet, and see the Discovery Of Voyager show at the Music Box

Jeff decides to talk about the upcoming stretch drive for the Saints season. This was recorded the night before the home game against Carolina but the commentary is still pretty ok.  

Recipe Minute

From the book, Kachka: A Return to Russian Cooking, Alli makes something called “Herring Under A Fur Coat”
