E438x – Anniversary of Montana’s Statehood



One year ago, Aaron turned a year older and a few friends gathered at the studio after a recording to celebrate the anniversary of Montana’s statehood.  Aaron has a special connection to that day, and we wanted to mark the occasion.  Present were Aaron & Anna, Guthrie, Armando, Brock & Adele, and we’re sharing a minimally edited version of a live mic in the room with all of their permission.  You get to be a fly on the wall for this celebration.

New studio show coming later this week.  Enjoys!


E437 – Riding In The Rain with Armando

We return this week to a perennial topic, popular because it is pervasive: riding in the rain.  This edition, Armando brings the bike love and a pizza to the discussion about wet, gear, and drying out.  Also Aaron takes a field trip to a pumpkin patch and Guthrie tries out apple cider donuts.

As always, thanks to our drink sponsor The Beer Mongers & our generous Patreon donors.
