After a long winter … like Game of Thrones winter, the fellas open season 2 (safely from the confines of their respective homes talking over the interwebs) chatting about how the coronavirus affects their lives. It’s taken a particular toll on Chad’s favorite coffee shop — Blip Roasters. And we talk about how people can help owner Ian Davis save Blip and, perhaps, win a vintage motorcycle to boot. This week’s Triple D: What do you call someone — especially during this time of COVID-19 — who spits on groceries or packages?
On the week of Chad’s 22nd wedding anniversary, the fellas discuss the married life. How did they each meet their spouse? They chat what they value in their marriage. And is the saying true, “when you marry … you marry the family?” Soon you’ll get to hear the ladies’ reaction in Part 2. This week’s Triple D: What do you call someone who asks you to do something — is never pleased with it — so they redo it anyway?
The fellas chat with Alana Gwinner, Kansas City’s ultimate craft beer enthusiast and proprietor of Eleven Three KC. She keeps the KC community up to date on the local craft beer scene — daily, folks, making her a must follow on Instagram. We talk current Kansas City beer scene and festivals. This week’s Triple D: What do you call someone who likes to stroll into the beer hall or tasting room and name drop the brewery owner?
The fellas finally offer their take on coffee. Is it really the preferred beverage over craft beer? Chad’s stalking of LaColombe’s Todd Carmichael might provide the answer. Ultimately, they chat their favorite local cafes, coffee travel experiences and whether Keurigs are a device of the Devil. This week’s Triple D: What do you call someone who leaves a 1-star rating after only listening to a single episode of your podcast? This is episode is sponsored by the Open Belly Podcast.

This week’s Triple D: What do you call someone who asks to split up the bill based on how much you ate out of shared dishes?
Brent and Chad talk misadventures from their annual long weekend trips. Three breakfasts, almost being hit by lightning, surreal sports bars. What’s next in year eight in Seattle? This week’s Triple D: What do you call … “The sports parent who thinks their kids going pro?”
Brent and Chad road trip for a Minneapolis Craft Beer tour. They also talk axe throwing, Western Auto sign lighting, World Cup soccer and hotel room fires. This week’s Triple D: Someone who walks wide on the sidewalk so you have to jump into the street?
For June’s “Up Next!” we thought we’d trek outdoors. We spotlight where to go … and what to do this summer. (And thanks again to all of our May “Up Next! contributors — awesome people and things to do. If you haven’t already, go check it out.)
He: What’s so cool was that we got out and tried at least one thing from everyone’s list last month. Well, except for Cathy’s ballet class. As a consolation, we made her our first The Hump! interview guest.Not familiar with “Up Next!”? We pose a question to people we like, respect and admire. And we ask them to answer in 100 words or so (plus share a little about what they have going on). [Tweet “We asked our “Up Next!” panel, “where outdoors would you recommend someone visit this month?””] This month, the spring rain — presumably — has stopped. So we asked our contributors where they would venture outdoors.
He: And … presumably … it’s still temperate enough that you’d want to go outdoors — at least in Kansas City. Why Chad discusses on The Hump! that swimming suits are required Boulevardia apparel.And because the kids are out of school on summer vacation, travel season is also upon us. With that in mind, we enlisted not only Kansas City contributors but also some of our favorite people from our favorite places — East Coast, Midwest, Southwest and West Coast. Want to know what to do this summer? There’s a little of something for everyone. Anything nominally “outside” was accepted, as Brent would argue that dining al fresco or hitting a beer patio is “outdoors.”
Q: Where Outdoors Do You Recommend Someone Visit in June?This is what they said for “Up Next!” …

There are several patios around Kansas City that are not only family friendly, but dog friendly as well. Start your afternoon at Kansas City Bier Co. Their patio is huge! They have live music, great food, and their beer 😍 . Their radler is perfect for summertime in Kansas City! Then head down to the Crossroads to Brewery Emperial’s patio. It is a great starting point before enjoying your evening checking out art alley or First Friday’s. If patios aren’t enough outside action for you, you can also explore the four outdoor beer festivals scheduled in June – Westport Beer Fest (June 9), Boulevardia (June 15-16), East Forty’s Brew & Chew (June 16), and Crossroads Beer Fest (June 23). Cheers!
He: No summer VisitKC Tap Tour? No problem. Cheers, indeed!
