Chalonda White, host of This Chick Talks Beer podcast and curator of Afro.Beer.Chick, joins Ed and Day to talk about her start in the beer industry, one that has become instrumental for connecting Black drinkers. As an expert in beer and bourbon, she talks both with Ed and Day and also shares her extensive knowledge of the Chicago brewing scene – one that includes 160+ breweries. Listen in as she offers a hilarious take on how she keeps her “liver poppin’” before turning serious and discusses the lack of urban breweries. Midway through, the conversation gets personal, and wildly entertaining, as the trio discusses the mix of the personal and professional. Ms. White explains how her other project, The Neat Pour, a podcast she hosts with her husband, has been affected by the pandemic and how bourbon helps keep things smoothed over. Ed and Day sip a Black is Beautiful collab from Modern Methods, one that was brewed by Hannah Ferguson, Ohio’s only female Black brewer, and features cocoa nibs and strawberry. Day places the collab in his top three, and Ms. White lists her own favorites and places Second Shift out of St. Louis as her favorite. The closing segment explores the different beer crazes as Afro.Beer.Chick begs for a, “a good, clean, old-fashioned IPA.” A fantastic listen from start to finish.

The Drinking Partners bring comedy back on tap as they welcome comic Marcus Cox and reminisce on their early days as performers. It doesn’t take long for the jokes and jabs to start and the laughter to spread as Ed and Day banter back and forth and Marcus joins in, which listeners will recognize as a true return to form for the Drinking Partners. The trio gets momentarily serious as they discuss comedy as a profession during pandemic times and the difficulties that have accompanied closed stages and venues. And then the conversation transitions into oversized belt buckles, earrings, and other aughts-centric style, as Ed remarks, “These kids don’t know.” This latest Drinking Partners release is more than just entertainment, as it fully explores several angles of careers in comedy, from financial security to self-preservation and promotion, with Marcus explaining how his own business ventures - MC Auto Detailing - has helped support him throughout the last year. Another classic Drinking Partners listen, filled with philosophy on comedy and beyond, and one that offers enough laughs to last until the next release. Yet also offers some hate for crinkle cut fries. Find Marcus on Facebook as Marcus Cox and on IG: @marcuscomedy86

The Drinking Partners, especially Ed, excitedly welcome Anthony “Sizzle” Perry, the founder of Crafted Culture Brewing Company in Columbus, Ohio. This interview sets itself apart from the opening segment as Sizzle explains how he “accidentally” fell into brewing after a stint as a fill-in bartender, which led to various jobs across the brewing industry, including as a delivery man. Or, as Ed suggests. Mr. Perry is, “The Drinking Partners meets Will Smith in the Pursuit of Happiness.” But Sizzle had a marketing strategy of his own: “If you want to gain yards in this game, go where they ain’t.” He presented his idea to the COO of the company where he worked as the top salesman, yet his proposal was brushed off as nonsensical. From there, he decided to pursue brewing on his own, starting first as a home brewer. With creativity and a focus on bringing soul into brewing, Mr. Perry paired up with a lifetime friend and a professional brewer and opened Crafted Culture, Central Ohio’s first Black-owned brewery. Along with the brewery, Mr. Perry wants to focus on #beerthechange, a budding nonprofit that he hopes will help give back to diverse communities. Give this interview a full listen and enjoy the witty banter and deep business insights that have Ed feeling envious. Find more about Crafted Culture: www.craftedculturebrew.com
