Episode 182: Not Quite in the Street
– Local Spotlight: Radloff’s Cigar Shop and On the Rox Lounge; Rochester, NH

On the road again in the Oscuro III up to Radloff’s. It’s not warm enough to do the show outside, but almost! The cast is in rare form this week as the bad jokes are flying. The Hidden Herf takes kind of a left turn. Jamie takes a break from tending bar to sit down with us for a while.

Episode 178: Try Not To Laugh
– Local Spotlight: March Madness at the Domicile

With a cast of eight in rare form, the Podcast Juice is flowing and it shows. The Hidden Herf is a great choice and is well received, but it’s guessed instantly by a couple of the panel members. We reinstate the Current Events error “bar” because the list is so long.

Episode 177: I Swear
– Local Spotlight: Cloud Lounge; Salem, NH

We swear in (or at) our newest Hack, but not before he goes through a gaultlet of questions. The Hidden Herf is a split desision, but still overall it’s a decent smoke. Comedy Chris returns to lighten up the show.
