Last week I had the privilege of joining local San Diego craft beer advocate, beer blogger and podcaster Cody Thompson on his excellent Three B Zine podcast, (co-host Dustin Lothspeich was unable to join us that night) which you can find on the Three B Zine website and is conveniently available at the iTunes store and the best part is it’s free! So what is Three B Zine? Simple, the three B’s stand for Beer, Bands, and Bites, three things that I’m all too happy and have way too much to talk about.
Being asked to be interviewed was very flattering, but very fun. With a format like podcasting where you are sitting across from another person and they are firing questions at you, it definitely keeps you on your toes and forces you to gather your thoughts quickly and spit them out coherently. A task that, for me, is not as easy as it looks. Luckily for me, Cody is very good at what he does as the host of the show and always manages to keep everything on track. He is able to create a casual environment where you just want to sit back and chat with your buddy. It didn’t take too long for me to forget the fact that there was a microphone in the room. The Boo Koo IPA from Mother Earth Brewing probably helped with that.
We had the opportunity to talk not only about our love for craft beer and why we’ve gotten into the world of blogs and podcasts, but we also talked about some topics from the retail side of beer sales as well as a recap of our time at San Diego Comic Con. It was an absolute blast and I hope I’ll get the opportunity to do it again one day.
I am humbly asking that, if you enjoy a good podcast, head over to ThreeBZine.com or find them on the iTunes podcast app and download episode 35, featuring me. Early reports are that I don’t sound like an asshole, so that’s good. But I’m always looking for more validation in life that says I’m not an asshole, so please listen and let me know what you think. Then once you are addicted to the sweet melodious sounds of Cody, peruse their back-episodes and download those as well. There are quite a few gems in the bunch. Thanks, and my fingers are crossed that you don’t think I sound like a douche nozzle.
