Back in a blaze of glory, welcome to the blog supplement to our second podcast!
It’s me again, Philly, sharing some more info from our latest show. We’re very excited to announce that we have a name for our secret hideout, the bar in North Portland where we tape the show. Thanks to the brilliance of the lovely, talented and very pregnant Jean Kotila (Eric’s bride), our new home has been dubbed “The Helm.” Considering there’s a framed portrait of Levon Helm perched proudly on the back of the bar, among several bottles of whiskey, I’d say that Jean hit a home run with this one. Thanks Jean!!!
Which reminds me . . . we need to start posting some photos. I promise to get on that.
