Episode 45 – Ice To Meet You

With Benedict Arnold in transit to Orlando Florida, Dave was left to fend for himself this week; and lo! it was good.

Assisting Dave this week is Alex Rubens (@alexrubens, give him a follow, he’s a CCG) who has more cool jobs at the age of 21 than you have had your entire, miserable life. He’s cool like that.

Alex starts the show aggressively by bringing back a meme from 2007 before Dave regales you with tales from #Bitsummit, Kyoto, Hiroshima, and Gion Matsuri.

In an unexpected turn of events, Alex turns Dave against United Airlines. 1k status is up for grabs: WHO WANTS IT MOST?

The CCG’s close out the show by answering some emails, wherein Paul tells Dave he should have been in the movie The Warriors, and Dave turns into a blubbery mess at the implications therein.

  1. Kyoto is an awesome city. I hope you got to visit the Inari shrine. Gion Matsuri is awesome as well. Everyone dressed up in their yukata having fun on a hot summer night.

    I think most people are surprised when they visit Hiroshima and realise it’s just a regular modern city now.

  2. After getting in on the ground floor of GoneForBacon radio and committing my ears to the podcast each and every week I can confidently say that Alex Rubens is a master class in all things CCG. If DW could not make it back from his trip to the sun Alex would be a welcome addition to the show. Hearing Dave trying to act cool and keep up with the young blood is way better than witnessing him in attack mode preying on the lamb that is Mr Wisner.

    Thanks for toughing out another week Lang.
