It’s a very special episode of HWX, with Brian Ward and Paul Happe reconvening to discuss the critical issues of our time. Topics addressed include:

* The NFL season is about to kick off, but it wouldn’t be 2017 without a side dish of politics. The meaning of the Colin Kaepernick saga is investigated.

* The continuing cultural revolution and attack on statues and offensive names is discussed. Included is our predictions on the next targets for removal.

What were they drinking during the episode? Blue Moon Summer Honey Wheat and Dogfish Head 60 Minute IPA.

    It’s always a “very special” episode, isn’t it?

    I’ve heard my handle mentioned a couple of times on this, the HWX podcast. Assuming I get a mention in the future, I provide this to you two as a public service: a Pronunciation Gazetteer!

    I pronounce Stad with a hard ST sound (as in stick), and an AD (as in add). Think of it as “stud” with a short A.

    Come to think of it, maybe I should change my handle to “Stud” . . .

    No, the wife would post, “Try Dud.”

    Noted, thanks. I’ll let Paul know that his pronunciation guess (Sharday) was wrong too

    The democratic response was hilarious. I always look forward to HWX.

    One more thing. I heard one of you all (I think it was Paul) mention drinking a Grolsch on one show. That’s my favorite beer! After work today, I picked up a case of the large, flip-top bottles from our local beverage place down here in Aiken, S.C. I’m ready for Irma. Bring her on!

    DogFish Head makes a lot of good beers; try one of these while recording your next episode:

    Great beer, and only $10/bottle!
