Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!" As Episode 25 comes to a conclusion, a couple of nerds decide to nerd out about some truly nerdy stuff. We're talking VIDEO GAMES today, son!!!

In this episode, the guys talk about all the video games they have been playing since they last recorded together. And since it's been a long break, there's been a LOT of video games. In a return to a more customary length episode, get ready to hear all about VR, horror games, competitive and cooperative multiplayer, and in-depth tactics and strategies used to defeat the Lord of the...nahhh, just kidding about that last one. But all the other stuff is true. I DID mention they were a couple of nerds, right? So go grab your favorite controller and a beer, strap in, and welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!"

Episode Twenty-Five Part Two - Two Floaters Hang in a Bar

Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!" The guys are ready to move on to part two of their relaunch format, but one of them really needs a cup of coffee first. Don't worry, I'll let you guess who.

In part two, the guys bring back a famous bit from the old days, and run through a bunch of fall and winter movies and TV shows they are anticipating. You'll find out pretty quickly if they think it's a floater or they'll drink to it, but apparently one of them wants to drink to everything...literally. Anyway, get ready for a quick little bit-sized segment, but make sure you grab a beer, strap in, and get ready for "Live from the ManCave!!!"

Episode Twenty-Five Part One - Welcome Back...Again!!

Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!"....again! If these guys take another break, I swear to Zod I'm done listening.

In this episode, the guys make some huge changes to the show and reboot the ManCave with a whole new format, just for your pleasure. They also talk way longer than expected, so they broke this show down into a few parts. Get ready to discuss the season eight premiere of The Walking Dead, along with WHAT THE HELL HAVE YOU GUYS BEEN DOING FOR THE LAST YEAR?!?! Also, they have a few drinks. Whatever....not that much has changed, I guess. So sit back, grab a beer, and get ready for the brand new reboot of "Live form the ManCave!!!"

Night After The Night Of - Season One, Ep Seven (Part Two)

Welcome back to "Night After the Night Of!!!" See, they told they'd be back for part two, didn't they? Time to see what's inside the Box.

In this episode, CraigMakk continues to demonstrate his extraordinary level of comprehension regarding Law for Dummies; Serious Jest feigns ignorance and drunkenness in order to stave off an Epic Rap Battle; and the guys both dig deep into the psyche of Detective Box while switching up the beer of the show. Except Jest goes off the reservation with his "(Blank) of the Show suggestions. Trust me, it definitely gets a little weird. So grab a beer, strap in, and welcome back to "Night After The Night Of!!!"

(Official) Beer of the Show: Iron Hill Bedotter Belgian-Style Tripel, the actual world's best tripel (and they have the gold medal to prove it).

Night After The Night Of - Season One, Ep Seven (Part One)

 Welcome back to "Night After The Night Of!!!" At this point, the guys will pretty much talk about anything if it gives them a chance to drink a few beers via the Internet, so feel free to join them.

 In this "The Night Of" recap of Episode Seven, CraigMakk explains why he agrees with Tom Hanks that there's no kissing in jail cells; Serious Jest describes in excruciating and disturbing detail how he listens to his own podcast; and the guys spend an inordinate amount of time name-dropping who "likes" their tweets. Plus they somehow find time to actually discuss the episode while drinking some kick-ass beers. So grab yourself a beer, strap in, and welcome back to "Night After The Night Of!!!"

 Beer(s) of the Show: 

Dogfish Head 90 Minute IPA, a strong yet enjoyable drink to spend time with (or pretty much the opposite of your co-hosts). 



 Ballast Point Pineapple Sculpin IPA, a fruity alternative take on a successful and well-known beer (or pretty much exactly like your co-hosts).


Last but not least, here is CraigMakk's baller birthday Joker pint glass. Enjoy!

Welcome back to "Night After The Night Of!!!" Get ready for more talk about murder and mayhem, people, because the inaugural episode continues.

In this episode, CraigMakk introduces you to the concept of "The Little Sister Experience" (which isn't what you think, so stop); Serious Jest pontificates on the whether this show is all part of "The Usual Suspects" cinematic universe; and both guys focus on the hotness that is Amara Karan while continuing to enjoy their quality beers of the show. If you're not watching "The Night Of," you're seriously missing out on one hot lawyer. So strap in, grab a beer, and welcome back to "Night After The Night Of!!!"

Night After The Night Of - Season One, Episode Six (Part One)

Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!" and another brand new special edition episode! You loved the inaugural "The Night Of" recap so much, it's now another semi-weekly podcast. Also another reason to drink on a weeknight, but who's counting?

In this very special "Night After The Night Of", Serious Jest reminds you that, YES, he is a lawyer and YES, he has tried actual cases before, in case you forgot somehow; CraigMakk reminds you that NO, he's never been convicted of any violent crime, and YES, he thinks tattooing your knuckles with the words "Sin" and "Bad" while on trial for murder might be a really stupid idea. All the while, the guys break down episodes four through six of the newest HBO phenomenon, mostly while trying to kill time until "Game of Thrones" returns...hence, all the beer. Also, CraigMakk gives you a spoiler-free review of the newest in DC's slate of superhero movies, "Suicide Squad!" So strap in, grab a beer of your own, and welcome to "The Night After The Night Of!!!"

Beer(s) of the Show: 


Jest returns to an old favorite, Ommegang Brewery's "Iron Throne Blonde Ale"...they really like Game of Thrones. 


CraigMakk dives back into Allagash Confluence Ale because...well, wordplay.

And here is CraigMakk's incredible birthday Ommegang Goblet in all its glory:

Episode Twenty-Four Part One - Night Of the Drunks!

Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!" Somehow, he did it again. Jest convinced Makk to upload this episode with almost no editing. Makk really needs to see someone about that OCD.

In this very special episode, the guys get deadly serious about a bunch of important topics, so prepare for a little change of pace. They touch on some of the insanity happening in the world today, and how people are sharing news faster than the news can keep up. But the also talk about a lot of childish stuff, like Loot Crate, Funko Pops, movie theaters vs ManCaves, and OJ Simpson. But they close it out with a breakdown of the first three episodes of HBO's "The Night Of" in preparation for the impending fourth episode.

You'll also hear CraigMakk tries to sell someone on bringing back drive-in theater even though they are terrible movie experiences; Serious Jest explains precisely how one should go about molesting a keg; and the guys still find a way to get pretty drunk. So grab a beer, strap in, and welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!"



 Beer of the Show: Stone's Farking Wheaton W00stout, a nerd-themes Imperial Stout with pecans and aged in a bourbon barrel. No wonder we got so drunk.

Cave of Thrones Season 6 Finale - ALL MEN MUST DIE! (Part 3)

Welcome back to "Cave of Thrones!!!" The epic finale of the Season Six Finale has finally come to it's epic finale...finally.

 In this episode, CraigMakk explains why time travel would probably just lead to his murder-suicide by stoning if an iPhone is involved; Serious Jest explains why he's not really all that into incest; and the guys make the wackest examples of House Motto's you've ever heard thanks to the shitty Internet. Oh, and they also have some of their biggest Thrones-related disagreements yet all while enjoying some high-quality craft beers at 3am. This one you just GOTTA listen to. So grab a beer, strap in, and welcome back to "Cave of Thrones" for the last time until next season!
