Episode 21 - The One with the Drunk Santas

 Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!" Merry Christmas! This is their favorite time of year...a holiday where everyone drinks, so you can hide your raging alcohol problem!

 In this episode, CraigMakk reminds you that you're never too old to love a man in tights, Jest sexually fixates on Russian weightlifters (it'll get uncomfortable, just a warning), and they both offer some great gift opportunities if you happen to have thousands of dollars on hand and donating to charity ain't your thing.

 Also, their holiday celebration just might bring about the implosion of the ManCave. At least according to CraigMakk, BOY, does he sound annoyed. So sit back, grab a winter warmer, and welcome to "Live from the ManCave!!!"



 Beer of the Show: Port Brewing's "Santa's Little Helper", a Russian Imperial Stout with an emphasis on dark cocoa and roasted coffee aromatics....because Santa's going to need all the help he can get with these two.

Episode Twenty Point Zed -"Don't Look At Me."

Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!" In a brand new twist as we close out the year, the boys bring you a "bite-sized" episode focusing on the close of Walking Dead Season Six. See what I did there? I made a funny, and this is just the show description. Hope you brought your funny hats, kids!

 In this episode, CraigMakk explains why a man can be his flower in a totally heterosexual way; Serious Jest explains why he would rather have the only Asian on the show die and that it's TOTALLY not racist; and they both give you their completely open and honest opinion of Walking Dead Season Six, all while drinking quite a bit without getting drunk. Perhaps these "bite-sized" episodes are on to something?

 Jest will also tell you all about Walker Stalker Con, describe one of the coolest zombie interactive events of all time, and make CraigMakk pretty damn jealous in the interim. So strap in, grab a beer, and welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!"

Episode 20B - How I Wish I Never Met Your Mother

Welcome back to "Live form the ManCave!!!" In this bonus episode, you will get to hear the most expansive gap between the guys yet. This will probably lead to the destruction of the ManCave as you know it.

 Nahhhh...we're just kidding. They may disagree, but they will always stay friends. I think. Whatever, enjoy the ride while you can! In the meantime, listen to their thoughts on "How I Met Your Mother," and learn how to disagree like a grown up before they forget themselves. And don't forget to go grab a beer, strap in, and welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!"



Beer of the Show : Iron Hill Brewery's Pumpkin Ale in a Can, a spiced ale that tastes heavier than the ABV would lead you to believe.

Episode 20A - The One About Captain 'Murica

Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!" In the spirit of one of the most special of America's many holidays, Thanksgiving, we decided to celebrate one of her greatest heroes of all time: Captain America. And we wanted to give you part one of a two-parter, so you can enjoy the ManCave with your family over the holiday! So never let anyone tell you that we aren't a couple of seriously patriotic Americans. Seriously, don't ever put yourself in a situation where our patriotism has come up, because you're probably already WAY screwed.

In this episode, CraigMakk explains why Walt Disney should NEVER be the man to teach your kids about racism; Jest describes the white, foamy substance that he loves to put in his mouth; and both of them team up against Hulk Smash to defend Captain America against all claims of racism, both home AND abroad. Throughout it all, they will break down why the Winter Soldier is a badass antagonist, discuss the importance of watching a movie franchise in order, and get pretty drunk. Or start the show drunk, and just get drunker. I can't even remember anymore...I was way too drunk. So go grab a beer, strap in, and welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!"


Beer of the Show: DuClaw 31 Pumpkin Spiced Lager, a German-style lager with a spicy finish of cinnamon and nutmeg...and certainly none of the foamy white stuff Jest was having an orgasm over.

Episode Nineteen - The SPOOOOOOOKY One

Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!" BOO!! Did we scare you? Probably, because we're spooky guys. We talk about haunted houses and shit. Scary, right? Shut up....grown men get scared too. Okay, mostly only CraigMakk.

 In this episode, CraigMakk will explain why it's okay for a grown ass man to run out of a room screaming like a bitch in 2015; Serious Jest will deny that his sexual advances are in any way at all creepy or terrifying;and they both will clue you in to a bunch of "alternative" ways to enjoy Halloween. Get your mind out of the gutter, you creeps.

 Throughout it all, they will discuss the best haunted houses; who would win in the battle of the Horror Villains; and the best ways to scare yourself playing with yourself. Plus, they will drink lots and lots of HARD LIQUOR! Who saw that coming? Also, beer. Whatever, you know how they do. It ends with people drunk, that's all that matters. The boys welcome John back to the studio, and Hulk Smash makes his first on-air appearance! It's going to get creepy. So go grab a beer, strap in, and welcome to "Live from the ManCave!!!"




Beer of the Show: Clown Shoes Undead Party Crasher. An American Imperial Stout that hates lawyers as much as you do.

Episode 18 - Waiting for CraigMakk

Welcome back to "Live from the ManCave!!!" Yes, we're very late. Blame CraigMakk. Seriously, it's all his fault. Between professional, personal, technological, and psychological problems, he's taken about nine months to finish this episode. So blame him when all the what were once incredibly witty and timely (way back when) jokes all make no sense, and the holiday season has almost lapped him. We're not too far off from pumpkin beer season again, so maybe you can just pretend this is from the future. Yeah, that's it...this is a podcast episode from the future, and you're lucky enough to hear it. In fact, CraigMakk is a helluva guy to handle all this time travel just for you, you ungrateful bastard!

In this episode, CraigMakk will explain why he's on "Team Guy" when it comes to women (yeah, don't ask); Serious Jest will remind you of his overwhelming porn addiction almost immediately; and they both enjoy a little competition that revolves around...well, you guessed it: BEER. Wow, what a surprise.

They'll also talk at length about both "Hannibal" and "Blue Valentine"...SPOILER ALERT!! Don't say we didn't warn you, because it's written right there in all caps. So go grab a beer, strap in for a long overdue extravaganza of words, and welcome to "Live from the ManCave!!!"



Beer of the Show: Southern Tier Warlock, a seasonal Imperial Stout brewed with Pumpkins...yummy.
