Liam Takes Over

In Episode 207, Steve, Demi, and Richard talk to Lauren Nicole Clare about her music project, The Allie Lauren Project. Steve makes no attempt to recall the title of the band’s new album, “The Lace Which Sailed and Bore Us Well Across the Epic Echo.” Steve’s efforts to assist Demi with bartending duties goes horribly awry when he shows up at Blacken Studios with a box of sangria that no one will drink. Demi reveals that she may or may not be the Beyonce of New Zealand. Lauren brings her two-year-old son, Liam, to the studio and he impresses the crew with his percussion skills. Does anyone need a box of Sangria?

Dusty’s Dead

No, Dusty’s not really dead. He’s actually a talented artist, illustrator and street artist who did a hard time in a Manhattan jail after being arrested by a cab driver. He’s also the first guest to bring his own booze to the show if one considers 3:2 Coors “booze.” Demi, on the other hand, opens the show with a shot of Raicilla, adistilled spiritoriginating in the southwestern portion of theMexicanstate ofJalisco. Liketequilaandmezcal, it is a product of theagaveplant. Traditionally, Raicilla has been created and sold as a "moonshine" product without government sanction or approval. Worth noting that the AKA podcast has also been created without government sanction or approval. Oh … and Richard’s wife celebrates their third anniversary by appearing on the podcast!

The Wishbone Show

In Episode 104, Demi takes over the show and introduces special guest Tracey Zeeck, a book author who lives in a mansion. Demi makes homemade pink lemonade that causes Richard, Tracey and Steve to pucker up. Tracey talks about her children’s book, “The Not in Here Story” (available online atamazon.com), a lovely little tale about the wonder of adoption. At one point, the crew simply stops talking and watches an episode of “Wishbone” while sipping lemonade. Demi reveals she is a germaphobe. Tracey solves several mysteries, including the one where Steve suddenly shouts “BUMBERSHOOT!”Follow Steve@sportstoons on Twitter and Instagram@hillcienda on TwitterFollow Demi@demstagram on InstagramFollow Richard@BlackenStudiosFollow Tracey@tzeeck on Twitter

Honk the Parrot

Steve, Demi and Richard welcome street artist/muralist Kris Kanaly to the show. Kris joins the crew on an exploration of IPAs, which may or may not have come from Demi’s growing brewery empire. Steve’s in trouble with Demi’s mom. Kris talks about his family’s fascinating history in the arts — and then shares his own journey in the underground culture of graffiti art. Demi buys a bike. Not just ANY bike … a Jimmy Buffet Margaritaville bike with ribbons and a honking parrot. Kris starts a legit non-profit. Steve disgusts everyone when he makes, and drinks, an IPA “suicide.” Follow Us Steve @hillciendaon Twitter @sportstoonson Twitter and Instagram Demi @demstagramson Instagram Richard @blackenstudioson Twitter and Instagram

He’s opening two new restaurants – and came up with a concept for a third restaurant during the course of the show.
