Amber already gave you the lowdown on her misadventures in podcasting, so now here's one of mine...

There was palpable energy in the room after we recorded the first North Fulton Drama Club and GA Political Podcast episodes. The liquor was flowing, and everyone gathered around Duane to grill him in a Meet Your Podcasters segment. He was hilarious and everyone was having a great time. In my case, perhaps, a little too much of a good time.

The apartment was stocked with Sweetwater, Sam Adams, Bud Light, Flying Dog, and Terrapin, and I went through a few of each of them (except the Bud Light, blech).
