Episode 30: Unscripted

The Hunker Downcast

Release Date: 04/23/2017

Hello. It is late April. How did your brackets do? Well those college sports are certainly difficult to predict. As is our show this time around when Lance and Alli have no idea what topics they might be asked to discuss. Let’s see what happens!  Oh also, it took extra long to edit and fix some of the audio problems with this episode which means that it’s late. So there are some fun predictions that turn out not to have been so hot. Keep an ear out for those too.  For the record, it turns out that Bill O’Reilly will, in fact, be “fine” with his $25 million buyout.

Segment 1

Lt. Gov Billy Nungesser has been clinging to monuments and antagonizing museum directors. We discuss and then decide to give Billy a call for follow up.

Varg wants to take down the monuments with his pickup truck.

The Legislature is in session. We talk a bit about the major issues as lawmakers try to avoid the “fiscal cliff” and do criminal justice reform. Here’s the Gambit on ways to contact your representatives.  Here also is a story about JP Morrell’s tampon and diapers tax exemption.

Segment 2

This annoying American Way Magazine article about Bywater is annoying. Also annoying, Chewbacchus people and their fake controversies. Also Chewbacchus is doing a thing that appears to rip off ‘tit Rex. Also Varg thinks Chewbacchus won’t last another 10 years.


Varg recaps Wrestlemania,  French Quarter Fest in the Square, and creates a freaking huge piece of art out of a door. Then there is an extended rant from our resident found object artist about recycling.

Alli went to see Radiohead. We get a full review of that show plus Radiohead memories from Alli’s younger days.  Also there was a “beer dinner” hosted by Treo and Wayward Owl Brewery.

Jeff and Alli saw Dean’s List’s “Fake News” show at New Movement. Jeff is also anxious about running the Crescent City Classic. (He ended up doing ok)

Alli has gotten involved in organizing a local chapter of Democratic Socialists Of America.
