In the latest Drinking Partners release, a theme emerges early as Day and guest host Daniel Dongilli explore the idea of learning from one’s mistakes with Tom Klingensmith, owner of Klingensmith Metal, which specializes in custom steel projects. From there, the men discuss a variety of topics – commutes, craft beer, and country living. But the trio also takes some time to analyze the podcast industry and chat about their favorites. A relaxed and refreshing listen that spans across ideas with ease and interest. To learn more about Klingensmith Metal visit Tom’s Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/klingensmithmetal/
From the opening segment, the latest Drinking Partners release is high on energy and action, with non-stop chatter and festivity as guest Walter Aguirre, owner of LA Taco food truck – which aims to introduce Latin American food into local communities – visits the studio. With moonshine and Hennessy in hand, Mr. Aguirre, who is also a digital marketer, shares tales and insight as he describes his experiences as a California transplant to suburban Pittsburgh. Ed provides the voice of abstinence while Day, Daniel (guest host from Grownup Human Comic People), and Walter sip boldly in true Drinking Partners fashion. The conversation swings like an out of control pendulum, from an analysis of Kanye West and the Kardashian curse to the neuroscience-based effects of watching World Star videos; each topic is scrutinized with a mix of hilarity and testosterone. In the waning moments of the podcast, the men contemplate on the universal subjects of life, work, and family, with a seriousness and sharpness that will make listeners pause. As Ed suggests, “You can live a lavish lifestyle, or you can have lavish relationships.” Of course, the discussion ends on a fantastically fun note as trap music gets analyzed, with Daniel offering an epic takedown. The latest podcast is a wild, weaving ride. Find where LA Taco truck will be next at lataco412.com
With Daniel Dongilli of Human Grownup Comic People as a guest host, the Drinking Partners get back to their roots and welcome Brixton Brewing’s head brewer Zack Ruskin. One of his offering, the Belgium & Hobbs ¬– a 14% quad barley wine that takes a year to ferment ¬– has Dan “attending to every sip” and feeling “infused with love” and Day dubbing it the “broken marriage brew,” for its warming nature. In the early half of the podcast, the men discuss the combination of art and science, two seemingly unconnected aspects of successful brewing before the high alcohol content of the beer kicks in and causes conversational havoc and plenty of laughs. The second offering from Brixton Brewing is the Matthew, an English Mild with a distinctive biscuit flavor that pairs well with everything. Halfway through, Ed trades places with Day and wastes no time cracking jokes and attempting to name a future beer for Brixton. In the latter minutes, the free flowing talk shifts from dating apps to airplanes to the authenticity of micro brewing. Sip on Zack’s creations at Hollywood Gardens in Rochester, PA and find more information on their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/hollywoodgardens
Comedian Gab Bonesso has listeners laughing within her first few moments as the latest Drinking Partners guest as she narrates her personal history in a wildly amusing manner. Dropping by the studio to promote her comedy album release, “Everyone’s Dead,” Ms. Bonesso’s enthusiastic energy and spunky passion inspires rapid-fire conversations and unrestrained admissions that are both hilarious and expository. Midway through, the interview deepens in both intensity and importance, as Gab describes how personal tragedy influences and affects her comedy. Part-confessional and part-performance, the segment is one of the most unforgettable moments in the history of the Drinking Partners. The trio’s chemistry builds as the podcast progresses, and jokes and quips are amplified by the group’s natural ease with each other. A fascinating listen with moments of intimacy and moments of mania. To download “Everyone’s Dead,” the first comedy release from Misra Records, visit https://gabbonesso.bandcamp.com.

Fellow Epicast podcaster Scot MacTaggart takes a seat for the first time on the studio’s couch to be interviewed by the Drinking Partners in this latest offering. In a reversal of sorts, the Pitchwerks host answers questions instead of asking them as he explains the concept behind his podcast: one that focuses on sales, marketing, and entrepreneurship and focuses on promoting what has worked for his guests and what might work for his listeners. Midway through, Mr. MacTaggart turns the tables on Ed and Day and quizzes them which makes for an interesting analysis. Stay tuned for the Pitchwerks founder’s thoughts on the three most important tips on how to succeed. A great listen for those seeking guidance on how to propel their business or craft further.
