I was recently invited by an old friend Russ Ariel, to take part in the taping ofBored To Alaska’s next podcast. I was excited because I had always enjoyed talking with Russ. He always had some poignant point to make on current affairs or just how he was was having a bad “F@#!ing Day”.
I hadn’t seen Russ for years and when I walked into the studio it was like we had just left the bar last night after a marathon drink fest (there was a lot to talk about). Russ and his good buddy Scott Culhane, have always enjoyed a good conversation as well. Actually, these conversations we are so fond of take the form of an edgy roast where anything and anyone is free game. Nothing like it.
As I sat down with Russ and Scott, along with Scott’s life long buddy Ryan Mezich, I realized that this came very naturally to these guys. They just sit around the table and let it fly and every once and awhile they remember there’s a mike in front of them. We covered everything from Korea to private parts being displayed on one’s shirt in the work place. I haven’t laughed that hard in awhile. I really enjoyed my time with these guys and I have to admit, at times…. I had forgotten we were taping as well.
These three make an amazing powerhouse and they really speak for today’s younger crowd who are looking for a voice. You can find them on YouTube, @MR.BEARRINGTON, & @SCOTTCULHANE.
