I could go on record saying that I struggled for a while over
what to do about this week's show. That would be a lie,
On one hand, I freely admit that some of the language, actions,
and stories from this interview are completely inappropriate for
children and may even be offensive to many adults. Yes I know that
some of you regular listeners have a low tolerance for the type of
humor that is prevalent in this week's show. I am not insensitive
to this -- hence the repeated warnings. I even admit that it would
have been relatively easy to cut the seven or eight most
potentially-offensive minutes out of the interview and "bleep" some
of the harsher language.
On the other hand, this is easily the most fun I've ever had
recording a podcast.
A few lessons learned from the evening:
- Jager tastes deceptively like candy ... but
it isn't. It's more like "evil cough syrup."
- Jager will make you
drunk-text your ex-girlfriend at 3:00 AM, and the results will not
- When buying The Dirty Third a round of
"whatever they're drinking," be careful: There are five of them
(plus you), and whatever that Jager-mixed concoction is, it costs
eight-bucks a shot. (It's really tasty though.)
- When I detox from this encounter, I will
definitely be asking Five 'Til Dawn to do an interview.
