  • Episode 212!

    The lovely and talented Scott Keever joins us this week!

    Ain't he adorable?
    Ain’t he adorable?

    Scott is here to talk about music. His band¬†Orkestar Bez Ime [or-KESS-tar behz EE-meh]–(“orchestra without a name” in Bulgarian) has a new release you can find on their Bandcamp page.

    Orkestar Bez Ime. OBI if you're nasty.

    Scott tells us about playing folk music from the other side of the planet, traveling to learn from the real deal, and the important difference between “gypsy” and “Roma”.

    Of course, being us, we also spend a good deal of time talking about glasses, local student protests related to Ferguson, and grammar before we get to that.

  • Episode 211!

    This week we are joined by James of Vault 404 and the Awfulcopter podcast!


    James, being an experienced podcaster himself, helps us get right to the important bits, such as, lady bits. We spend a fair amount of time talking about vaginal health this episode, then follow it up with an excellent hot dog eating story. I know, I know, it sounds like a joke. It might be.

    Oh, as promised, here’s the two images of overly sexualized fighting game characters we talk about in this weeks Fast Five:


  • Episode 210!

    This week, we’re joined by Derek Phillips. Derek is, simply put, the best. You’ll be able to tell when you listen to the episode. We talk about dancing, drinking, pot lucking and (in response to an email question from a listener) coming out. Also, mystery packages from Canada!

    As promised, here’s a video to help explain what the hell Morris Dancing is:

    Makes perfect sense now, doesn’t it?

  • Episode 206!

    Hey folks, this week we sit down with longtime listener, friend, and recently certified SCUBA diver Steffen. Steffen deserves mad respect for recording late with us, tackling what is prolly the coolest Fast Five yet, and not dying underwater. Take a listen.

  • Episode 205!

    It’s another scotch month here at AoN, you have been warned.

    We’re joined this episode by return guest Cetius Scotchbringer! We talk about lots of stuff like:

    Poutine from Red Cow! (seriously, Salsa ate all of that in like 8 minutes)

    Matt and Salsa got to hang out with Torne, a listener who was in town all the way from England.

    There was other stuff too but it’s a little foggy. There were a lot of high fives though.

  • Episode 199!

    This week we’re joined by the lovely and talented Bret TheAxe Pasek of Fandazzi Fire Circus and special bonus returning guest Emily Cook! Bret is going to be attempting to break the Guinness world record for most torches eaten in 60 seconds out at the MN Renaissance Festival this year! We talk about that and other festival nonsense this episode.

    Ain't he dreamy?

  • Episode 198!

    This week Matt is gone, but the lovely and talented Young Eric is here to make the show better than if Matt was here. Matt hasn’t had a chance to listen to this show before posting it, so he has no idea what they talked about. It’s like Christmas morning!


  • Episode 197!

    Hey gang, this week Lauren Haven joins us for a fun, rather nonsensical show. Hell, there may even be some talk of Honeytown in there.

    Don’t forget, you have a couple more opportunities to see Jena in the Fringe Festival this year!

    Jena Fringe

    You can find her showtimes here:

    The tourist trap (choreo)”

  • Episode 196!

    This week we are joined by the lovely and talented Toussaint Morrison! You’ve all heard us talk about how much we love his music before, this week we talk to him for over two hours and barely mention music at all. This episode delves into politics, education, race, class, comedy, and Kickstarter. We could have gone for hours, we hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed talking. Don’t forget to check out Toussaint’s music at his Bandcamp page! Pick up an album and have your socks rocked off.

    Lest we forget to give you a taste of what the man can do:

  • Episode 194!

    Hello! The lovely and talented Tim Wick joins us this week for his three-peat appearance on the podcast to talk about the Fringe Festival and all kinds of wacky theater hijinx! As you have grown to expect, we find a few distractions along the way, but we have a ton of fun. Speaking of distractions, Salsa went camping for the weekend and found his new choice in Mariokart:

    Blue shell this bitch!

    As I mentioned earlier the MN Fringe Festival is gearing up and that means there’s all kinds of wacky shit to see! The best way to keep track of what shows happen when and where is on the MN Fringe Festival website. For instance, there are Jena’s shows, And Still They Move or Fringe Orphans 3: The Legend of Orphans Gold. Or Tim’s shows, Jumpin’ Jack Kerouac, Power Point Karaoke, and Top Gun: The Musical. (Did we mention is has a Kickstarter?) Or Fearless Comedy Productions Fringe Sponsorship shows, First Draft Last Draft by previous guest Kyle Dekker and All Night Radio by David Walbridge.
