It has finally happened: our last undefeated fantasy team finally has a loss to their name. Big props to Pabst Interference for finally taking down 2-Pint Conversation. A few other things revealed this week: Chrissy is completely incompetent when it comes to using a calendar, Dru is going to turn 30 in less than a month, and apparently we might be lying to our listeners? Join us as we follow the story of what appears to be a one-sided love from the 60s, poor choices for motorcycle gang...

Welcome back to another week of we-can't-get-Chrissy-to-shut-up! But seriously though, when she gets on a roll, is there anyway to make it stop? If you can make it through this extra-long episode, you'll get to hear all about the BFG, 9/11 plane crashes, and six degrees of separation: location edition. You'll find some pit stops around the Rod of God school in Southwest Charlotte, an anti-Semitic librarian, planes made out of happy meal toys, and our ever-evolving cancel culture. We'll also...

Another week, another horrifying fantasy defeat for Chrissy...meanwhile, Dru remains undefeated. But he's about to face the only other undefeated contender so may the odds be ever in his favor. This week we manage to tackle two different sports stars that you've probably never heard of -- are you sensing a theme this season? Both of these gentlemen have set records in their respective fields while being some of the oldest players in competition. A few things you'll want to be on the lookout...

We're a third of the way through this season and we've already come up with our third podcast idea: #modernhistory. So along with #fakehistory, where we'll make up stories and decide what's real, #modernhistory will give you a full rundown of world history through modern communication. Let us know if you think we should actually develop these ideas into their own shows - would you listen? While you ponder the value of these potential shows, join us on a journey through Jacksonian politics,...

Welcome back to another week of the #fakehistory podcast all about conspiracies! Oh wait, that's not what this podcast is? Huh. I guess we've got the next show idea mapped out then because we're just full of ridiculous theories on everything. On a (mildly) more serious note, we're taking a look at the origins of the "sex sells" movement, barnstorming (whatever the heck that is), and ask the classic philosophical question, "when does truth become truth?" We'll come up with more 90s...

Twenty-Six Acres & Concord

The conspiracies are back and bigger than ever! Although, this one actually has some very real grains of truth to it...how is it possible that Dru is the first one to put these together?? Along with this possible ground-breaking revelation, we dive deep into civil rights, female empowerment, and the importance of good friendships. We hop into the results for week one of our fantasy league, while having to endure Dru's same PBR commentary for the second of many, many weeks to come. Let's not...

Triple C & Uptown

And the games have begun! We had ten listeners join our fantasy league and the battles start now. Stay tuned to see who will earn the right to borrow Charlotte's crown as ruler and win free beer in the process! In the meantime, we're back in Uptown discovering a few of our lesser-known famous people. We assess the lacking skills of a certain actor, discover the mystique of the Virginian dialect, expose juicy relationships from the past that were covered up, and learn the origins of an NFL...

Lenny Boy & South End

We're heading back into South End this week as we tackle the the big effs: financial history, feminism, and fantasy football. Surely we've left no room for controversy, right? We'll take a deeper look at writers that apparently we should know but don't, U.S. currency that was minted outside of the States, and acknowledge Chrissy's deep-seated betrayal of everything the Charlotte Buzz stands for by revealing herself to be a Denver Broncos fan. Along the way, we'll also look at the future of...

Pilot & Plaza Midwood

More
We're back for another week of planes, trains, and inaccurately conveying information! And by that, we mean editing revealed how many times we mis-spoke a number or attributed children to the wrong family...but that's all part of telling history while drinking beer, right? We've returned to Plaza Midwood where we analyzing age old business schemes that still leave everyone worse off in the end, take a deeper look at how society is reflected in the strange design of an estate home, and most...

Season two is finally here y'all! Did it sneak up on you just as fast as it did us? We had so many plans for the off-season, and somehow we didn't even come up with a better rating system than "it'll drink"...but we did come back with a new set, a new list of breweries, and loads of new stories. Dive in with us this week as we explore Uptown, with all of its glorious coastline, dismay for all things British, and quiet unwillingness to acknowledge its reverence for certain things British. Of...

We have finally made it: this is the final episode of our inaugural season. Join us for one last journey of chaos as we explore over-simplified road names which make traveling far more complicated than it should be, a cultural history that's so generic it's insulting, and a few of our favorite things: conspiracies and "great" robberies. We'll also share some final thoughts on this season and how this podcast has evolved from our original expectations. Make sure to get involved on our socials...

Sit down and strap in because we're about to dive deep into the flood of 1910. Haven't heard of it? Oh. How about the great train wreck of 1897? Hmm, not that either huh? Well don't worry, we'll set the record straight on what really happened during these moments history seems to have forgotten. Although, can you really blame it when these kinds of stories sound like they came right out of a word problem from high school math? Join us as we explore the origins of clickbait and crowdsourcing,...

Rivermen & Belmont

With just a few episodes left, take a stroll through historic Belmont with us. We'll learn all about the chronicles of William, a 13-year old dropout from Georgetown, and why it's a bad military tactic to fight uphill battles. A few things for you to ponder as we work through this week's topics: what would it look like if Brad Panovich became a monk? How do monks "take over" a farm? And is a house considered a mansion just because you name it so? Enjoy listening to Chrissy as she struggles...

Seaboard & Matthews

More
It's a 50/50 shot if this episode will help the leadership in Matthews take a look at how they're preserving town history or if it will cause the few businesses we're working with in that area to back out of their contracts with us due to offense...here's hoping for the former. This week we visit Matthews' beer-muda triangle while trying to determine the likelihood of a town-wide secret society. We'll learn what it means to be a 'bee city', brewery culture doesn't equate to blaring AC/DC...

Welp, Dru has finally given up on trying to get y'all to tell your mama's about this podcast...so clearly the next logical step is for you to be 'that guy' at work and put us on blast regardless of how negatively your coworkers respond. So good luck with that. This week we dive into poor spacial management via the military (who's really surprised there?), the development behind patchwork communities, and a historic landmark most notably used as a place of freedom. Along the way, we'll run...

Southern Range & Monroe

Welcome to an emotional week as we dive into the details of an innocent friendship that preceded international outrage. We're looking at a famous case of injustice that managed to put Monroe, North Carolina on the map. But before we get you all riled up, we explore the roots of a local store chain, the end of bartering in the southeast, and why anyone would start having children at nearly 60 years old. Along the way, we'll also discuss the feasibility of camera-smuggling, clever ways to gain...

Eleven Lakes & Cornelius

This week we swing from far south of Charlotte, up into the northern part of Mecklenburg County. Tell us what you think about our Cornelius conspiracy as we take a look into the French Revolution, mistaken identity, and a painting used as evidence. Along the way we try to distinguish Cornelius from Davidson while taking the time to argue over women's suffrage, how it's possible to lose an eye while plowing, and unscrupulous cotton weighers. The most important fact we'll discover however, is...

Legal Remedy & Rock Hill

This week we learn that it's possible for Chrissy to be louder than she already is if you bring up the right kind of topic - and Dru will call her out on it every time, regardless of his preexisting inability to hear. Who knew that Rock Hill, SC would instigate such a ruckus? Join us as we take a deeper look at some scandalous artwork, military training (courtesy of Westeros?), the most expensive towel you'll probably never see, and the most quintessentially 'southern' set of skills for a...

Town Brewing & West End

Join us as we tackle the delicate topic of race relations - so naturally, nearly every time we intend to say "desegregation" we say "segregation"...yikes. If you see us walking around with bruised foreheads, it's from the wildly frustrated facepalms that came during the editing of this recording. Aside from our own idiocy, (can we blame it on the alcohol?) we're exploring at Charlotte's West End: a neighborhood full of rich history and a brand new brewery. We'll look back at one of the most...

King Canary & Mooresville

Welcome to Race City, USA! This week we're tackling the dreaded I-77 gridlock to make it into Mooresville and check out King Canary Brewing. Travel through time as we take an unexpected journey to the 1700s where we'll discover that aside from our 'first world problems', people are always just going to be people regardless of century. We're also going to find out what happens when a 'dark horse' crashes into a buggy and horse - no punchline required because history is wild enough on it's...
