One thing that we hope comes through in the podcast is that we really enjoy talking with each other. What makes that even more enjoyable? Getting to record from the same room, since we usually have to do the show remotely. And there’s only one thing that can make that even better — getting to record together from a badass location.
Such was our situation on Wednesday night when we descended on the Pioneer Square location of Flatstick Pub, where we were able to produce the show on our way to last nights Seattle Sounders friendly against Borussia Dortmund. Flatstick Pub, which also boasts locations in Kirkland and South Lake Union (and, soon, Tacoma and Spokane), is noted for its minigolf courses (flatstick ... get it?), extensive selection of games, and Washington-only craft beer (and cider and wine) tap list. It did not disappoint in that regard.
The best part about Flatstick, though? It’s Coug-owned, takes a big interest in Coug causes, and employs a lot of Cougs — including Rob Forbes and Brian Largent, who both joined us on the show to talk about the stuff we typically love talking about: Beer, great locations to drink it, and the Washington State Cougars.

Before you get to the show, just a quick aside: Rob and Brian were unbelievable hosts who went waaaay above and beyond our expectations, which were basically “hey man is there an outlet we can use?” Our second-class podcast got some serious first-class treatment, and we are incredibly grateful for the hospitality. This won’t be the last time we frequent Flatstick; beyond that fact that we’re definitely going to make it our go-to location for stadium district activities (and hope you will, too), we’re already making plans for a full-blown Podcast Vs. Everyone event at one of the locations. Stay tuned.
- Beer: Jeff, Craig, Rob, and Brian talked about beer — featuring selections from Reuben’s Brews and Skookum Brewery — and all the cool stuff going on at Flatstick, including fundraisers for Hilinski’s Hope and Gleasonfest.
- WSU (16:00): Question time! “What’s your favorite WSU football memory from a game you’ve attended in person?” Four guys who graduated in three different decades reminisce.
Fair warning — we do use naughty words from time to time.
You’ll probably hate it. We don’t care.
(But if you do like it, please leave us a five-star review — it helps other people find the podcast.)
