Welcome to The Hump! Podcast …. In episode 10 of The Hump! Podcast: School’s Out for Summer Fun ….  hosts Brent Bowen and Chad Beland get talking summer plans and post it right as kids go back to school. Yikes. But perhaps school’s just now out for parents?

In this episode, we recap our summer movies episode with Angie Pedersen of KC Geeks. We also discuss our respective trips to Europe and Big Cedar Lodge and fun things to do in Kansas City and Chicago. It’s more food festivals and music festivals than any one person can handle.
Before and after the official fun, we out bad behavior and celebrate a moment or two where common decency has prevailed. Has empathy and sympathy had a moment?
School is out (or back in for kids and out for parents — go catch up on the things you missed carting kids around) so here where the fellas recommend you go play.

In Ep. 10 of The Hump! Podcast, Brent & Chad Talk Summer Fun … School’s Out for Summer Fun!

The two buddies who like to drink a lot of craft beer together, talk summer fun filled with movies, travel (trips), food festivals and music festivals.

But before talking summer fun and recapping their conversation with Angie Pedersen of KC Geeks, the fellas …

  • Share several toasts with a beer from a standout Wichita brewery — Wichita’s Central Standard Brewing. Their beer of the week is Central Standard Brewing Yard Games Pina Colada Gose
  • They provide their Toasts of The Week …

    • The fellas … their buddy Hunter … finish KC Tap Tour!
    • Celebrating human decency prevailing this week:
      • ABC cancels Roseanne and other outlets stop running it in syndication
      • Missouri Governor Eric Greitens FINALLY resigns
    • Chad’s youngest daughter makes the Kansas City Youth Symphony’s Debut Orchestra as violist
    • Both of Brent’s kids get a clean bill of health during their annual check up (Nothing to sneeze at because you can’t take you kids’ health for granted.)
    • Raise a glass to guest producer Gary Arnold Seevers from Arnold Seevers Media (our usual producer was in a different state … Chad wonders what kind of state … state of mind?)
  • And chat about what they’ve got going on:

Up Next! KC Geeks!This Week’s Topic — Summer Fun With Trips, Movies, Food and Music Festivals

In the discussion, the fellas chat:

  • A segment … recap of their discussion with Angie Pedersen of KC Geeks* Since the interview, she’s posted a great guide to free summer movies in Kansas City (Angie’s known to often publish free geek to low-cost geek outings.)
    • They express some shock over how Brent has not seen Solo … (if you saw it, did you consider it a dumpster fire?)
    • Chad was dragged to Melissa McCarthy’s Life of the Party (Chad’s quick take … while he love Melissa, just watch the trailer.)
    • And they finally talk Deadpool 2
      • They’re a little surprised at its week 2 attendance drop
      • Both of the guys felt the Deadpool sequel was on par with the original
    • The boys then posit whether we really needed another Jurassic Park. Now … if it’s a social commentary about the uber rich. Game on.
    • And they give Mr. Rogers his due and finally talk about the movie (it was after all alluded to in the past episode but never discussed)
      • The documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor reflects on Mr. Rogers fight for kindness and human decency. The positive message may just be what we need right now.
      • So … the fellas chat whether there is there enough empathy and sympathy in the world.
      • And quickly devolve into how iconic Mr. Rogers was, pointing to Eddie Murphy’s SNL turn as and the infamous Mr. Robinson …
      • Finally, Brent declares that he may be Mr. Rogers in the coming weeks as Chad heads of to Europe, i.e. standing in with puppets

This Week’s Segment … SCHOOL’S OUT FOR SUMMER FUN!

    • Brent and Chad share how they plan on filling their respective summer fun … (and how the family does it, too)
      • Watching teenagers stay up crazy late and sleep until noon
      • Chad chat a bit about his family trip to Europe, where they’ll hit four different countries
      • Brent discusses the summer of family invasion (in late June and early August). Though this will include a trip to Big Cedar Lodge. Brent’s particularly excited about Big Cedar Lodge’s new attraction, Fun Mountain, which features a Pitfall-style ropes course (i.e. the area below is filled with the peril of alligators and pythons) … and go-karts. Chad remarks: Only in the Ozarks
      • They remark on the wonder of The Kansas City Parks and Rec’s The Bay water park. Both were unaware of its splendor until it was featured in the June “Up Next!

They throw out a scenario … and discuss whether it’s a DICK, DOUCHE or DUMBASS move. This episode’s Triple D move. And it’s travel-related at that:
