Hank Watson's Garage Hour podcast

Live from Helix Brewing Co in lovely industrial La Mesa, the Garage Hour goons have assembled to take a whack at Christmas gift shopping, in particular, buying gearhead bits (gifts included) via Craig's List.

FNG cohost Gringo Rich joins .45 Phil and Hostus Maximus Justin Fort to reveal his yearlong investigation/harassment of Craig's scammers, and between sips of fine Helix ales, the three chat up some of the essentials rules for shopping on the cash-and-carry geek goldmine that is the internet.

It's not all ball bearings nowadays, however: there's more desert racing, ORW at TDS 2018, the Helix water system (just say "flume"), dude versus chick Christmas gifts (Black Purses Matter) and the incomprehensible Purse Logic Black Hole, Silent Dennis and Not So Silent Craig, plus #ScrewIt.

From the fancy "nomnom" intro (because food-truck BLT) to the battle of one-upmanship that kills the session (because VW powa!), it's a great time for gearhead talk.  The Garage Hour goons assemble the consultancy for an hour about the Great American Beer Festival and diesel tuning ensued (Maximum Gearhead), but that's okay - you'd have done the same.

Joining the usual suspects (.45 Phil, Chef Jeff and Hostus Maximus Justin Fort) on-air were Instagram sensation "SDBeerTour" founder, Rob Strudel, as well as Garage Hour groupie sensations Jennifer and Blaire.  Why would we assemble this dreadnaught of talk-radio charm?  Because of new beers at Helix Brewing Co., the annual gathering of small glasses that is the Great American Beer Fest in Denver, wild and crazy beers versus asparagus beer (yup!), as well as Americans' irrational hatred of Miatas, the latest bush-fire rampage in San Diego, as well as a little taste of desert season and the how-big-is-your-engine melee that ruined everything.

Why not?  Because gearhead.

It's beers and gears season in San Diego, and the Garage Hour goons are out visiting new makers of fine sippables like Protector Brewery (thanks to the support of Helix Brewing).

When one of our teams buddies suggested we needed to visit another teams guy making beer, who were we to refuse?  Sean from Protector has carved out a niche in San Diego's grand brewing scene by going 100% organic with his ingredients (it's harder than you think) but that's about where his beers stopped following any rules.  Protector's got a delightful - and eccentric - brigade of tastes and styles, and cohost/Master Guns .45 Phil joined Hostus Maximus Justin Fort on-air to sample as many as the taste buds would permit.

It's a Garage Hour that's heavy on the beer and not much else.

The Garage Hour brain trust gets together to debate the great questions of our time.  Who's the better villain, Darth Vader or Little Bill Daggett?  You'd be surprised.  Who has more rights, your car or you?  Will Isaac Asimov or Mary Shelley's vision of the robots in our future prevail?  Will .45 Phil's September Temper spell the end of life on Planet Earth, or just wind up causing a pile of broken robots?  Can Crag Maxwell cross "choke out Che Guevara" off his list of crazy sh!t he never thought he'd get to do?

These questions and more (like Jagermeister versus Olde English, Morphine versus Spinal Tap, Nazis versus Imperial Stormtroopers, and Wikipedia's porn problem), all on this episode of Hank Watson's Garage Hour.  Get some, because now.
