Drinking Partners

Cue Perry, artist and entrepreneur, visits with the Drinking Partners in the latest podcast release. As an artist who wants his work to “speak to the wild, creative, open minds who dare to express themselves,” CB Perry is known for pushing boundaries, from body painting to deconstructing pop culture with a humorous touch. In the early minutes, he talks about how to move from artist to businessman and how to monetize your passion, which he has done successfully as a full-time artist for the last year by focusing on peer-to-peer mentoring, marketing and sales, pricing, and time management....

Drinking Partners

As the Drinking Partners start the new year with a call for feedback as they head into year 6, they also institute some new rules of their own, like warning their guests of the “dangerous 9” they are sipping from Allagash Brewing. After coming up with a creative name for such a strong beer, Ed and Day introduce Keven, Jesse, and Ben from Los Vampiros Amarillos, a Pittsburgh-based rock band with a blues-infused sound who talk about the band’s equally-creative name, one that they adopted after their original name no longer worked (listen in for why). Their advice for new bands: Decide what...

Drinking Partners

Ed and Day try to convince their latest guest to embrace her superhero-like name: Captain Battle. Listen in to find out what comedienne Leslie Battle thinks of their antics before she schools them both with the experience that has come from her years as a woman and as a veteran. Now, as a comic, she explores life as a “mother, soldier, divorcee, and performer.” The interview expands well beyond that scope as Ms. Battle discusses her life as a Black woman; at times, the conversation is analytical and thoughtful before shifting to humorous fun, in the way that comics do best. At all times,...

The Drinking Partners don’t wait long to get into their verbal shenanigans in the newest podcast release. As only Ed and Day can manage, they make a debate about work “etiquette” definitely NSFW.

As Pittsburgh’s oldest maker space, HackPittsburgh offers a cooperative environment for members to come together and combine talents and skills in an educational, collaborative way, in addition to hosting events for the public.

Drinking Partners

Ed rates himself an 8.5 on the “segue scale” as he introduces Hannah Ferguson as a queen and one of America’s few Black female brewers. After an initial start in brewing wine, Ms. Ferguson shifted toward craft beer as the scene exploded and began working with Modern Methods Brewing Company in Warren, Ohio. The opening segments allow her to explain the differences between brewing wine and beer, and how she had to abandon the patience required for winemaking, only to be replaced by the anxiety that comes with brewing beer. The first beer that the group samples is an ESB, or English Style...

In the latest Drinking Partners podcast, there are “So many syllables in the introduction” that Ed starts sweating as he welcomes Bill Flanagan and Jeff Broadhurst, the Chief Corporate Relations Officer and the Co-Chairman, respectively, of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development’s Our Next 75 summit. What follows is an in-depth conversation about the economic development of the Pittsburgh region and an explanation of the Our Next 75 summit, which brought over 1000 leaders from across a 10-county region together to strategize on how to move the area forward. Mr. Flanagan and Mr. Broadhurst patiently explain, despite Ed and Day’s interruptions, the scope and reach of the Allegheny Conference, although the Drinking Partners add their own, humor-centered touches on everything from transportation issues to the best icebreakers. As always, the Drinking Partners mix the serious with the absurd. This latest release offers an important and entertaining glimpse into what the future of the Allegheny region looks like.
