With three VR cameras recording the latest Drinking Partners podcast, listeners will be able to experience the mayhem in a whole new way! Sean Smith– CTIO of Pro Digital VR – brings his technology to the studio for this unique experience that combines what the Drinking Partners do best with what Pro Digital VR has mastered. Can’t make it to a live podcast? Just visit https://prodigitalvr.com/drinkingpartners/ to jump into the fun. As Mr. Smith mentions, VR is an “empathy machine” that allows viewers to step into someone else’s world, and the Drinking Partners world is one that offers hours of laughable entertainment. Privacy in the digital age is a talking point throughout as the men discuss the blurred lines that instant accessibility creates and the importance of maintaining digital freedom. And then there is the conversation about space travel and aliens. Listen in to decide for yourself what to make of that one! As Ed says, “Earth is going to get gentrified.” You might need a beer after that one, so check out Fresh Fest, which will take place August 11, 2018 at Threadbare Cider House: “Diversity and different voices in the industry make an industry better,” Day promises.
Live and loose from Industry Public House, the Drinking Partners showcase themselves in true and fun form in this action-packed and interactive podcast. From the opening seconds, the tone is set as Ed and Day argue about how to even begin the episode. Brian Eaton, cofounder of Gristhouse Brewing, and the Beer Executive Officer of Industry, Colin McCullough – whose work title has the Drinking Partners both jealous and giddy – join the panel. Craft lovers will enjoy the explanation and recipe sharing behind sour beers, but beware the discussion on clowns that follows! Did you know there was such a thing as cookout sandals? To learn more, listen for Ed’s description and, for longtime listeners, hear once more of his hatred of feet. Interested in a “beercation?” Both Brian and Colin share their top picks for breweries to include. The Drinking Partners are at their best live, and this latest release is no different as they toe the PG-13 line with hilarious results. Love festivals, beer, and games?

What’s better than getting beer shipped to you from Troeg’s while sipping on beer from Mindful? Not much, the Drinking Partners decide in their latest podcast release. Happy and well-lubricated, Ed and Day welcome noted Pittsburgh blogger, and, according to Day, the daredevil of journalism, Virginia Montanez. Ms. Montanez shares a unique perspective as she relates her history of being “outed” as a once-anonymous political commentator, which caused her to lose her job with a non-profit, which leads into a conversation about the consequences of free speech. Several, Drinking Partners-esque detours offer laughs as the trio muses about deer as vermin, privacy concerns, and the political happenings in and around Pittsburgh, all within a few breaths. After years of blogging as Pittsburgh’s preeminent and wittiest voice, Ms. Montanez now shares her thoughts on Twitter. To follow her and her latest thoughts, find her @janepitt.
