Ep. 35 | Stubhy Pandav | Lead Singer of Lucky Boys Confusion | Live from Five Star Bar in Chicago, IL

Kaustubh “Stubhy” Pandav has had a lengthy career in music that’s nearly impossible to categorize. While he’s best known for being the frontman of Lucky Boys Confusion, he’s a songwriter that’s been perfecting his craft for over 20 years, while building up a rock ‘n’ roll resume that can’t be confined to a single band or genre.

The Pubcast heads east! It’s about time we give a nod to the U.S.’ East Coast, and there’s no better place to start than the nation’s capital: Washington, D.C. While “DC” might not immediately bring to mind thoughts of hazy IPAs, German-influenced lagers, or any style of beer for that matter, it’s home to a young, agile beer scene that’s full of personality. In this first half of our “DC Beer Edition” of the Pubcast, Dave Coleman – Co-Founder of 3 Stars Brewing – and Phil Runco – a...

Krisztina ‘Z’ Holly seems to have done it all when it comes to tech, manufacturing, and adventuring.

While Z’s accomplishments include creating the first TEDx events, founding innovation centers at both MIT and USC, and working with multiple successful tech startups (and that’s just...


Ep. 30 | “Flight School” with Scout Beer | Live from Portland, OR

We’ve been traveling all over the world recently to find a good beverage, but it’s time to take things stateside again for another edition of “Flight School.” Portland, Oregon – in addition to being weird – is regarded as one of the best beer markets in the U.S. Today, we finally get to dive into the beer scene in The City of Roses with Joe St. Martin, co-founder of Portland’s Scout Beer. While most West Coast breweries are regarded as havens for hoppy IPAs, Scout is taking a different...

We’re wrapping up our first international series with an episode in Prague, Czech Republic, a picturesque Central European city with a reputation for world-class nightlife, and beer that costs less than water!

He leads Prague’s food & beer...

Ep. 27 | Andy Ricker | Owner & Chef at Pok Pok | Live from Reel M Inn in Portland, OR

You may have heard of Andy Ricker before. Perhaps it was through his VICE documentary FARANG? Or maybe you’ve seen him featured on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives or cruising around the Chiang Mai, Thailand with Bourdain on Parts Unknown.

As a brewery, Standard Deviant is veering away a bit from the trends that are characteristics of most West Coast...


Ep. 25 | The Yacht Week | Live from the Adriatic Sea off the coast of Croatia

I’M ON A BOAT! That’s right, this episode DOES NOT take place in a bar or brewery, but rather aboard a sailing yacht in the middle of the Adriatic Sea off the coast of Croatia.

On my recent holiday in Europe, I was lucky enough to have Brad Dupen as the skipper for our boat....


Ep. 24 | Niket Desai | Internet Entrepreneur & Jester | Live from Church Key in San Francisco, CA

“Mischief-Maker.” “Jester.” These are the type of words Niket Desai uses to describe himself. Yeah, a more appropriate title would be “Internet Entrepreneur” or “Investor,” but it’s all about his “don’t take yourself too seriously” outlook… Niket has had a lot of fun in his life and career. From founding and selling the loyalty app startup Punchd to Google, to traveling and living around the world (including spots like Singapore and Israel) this episode is full of serendipity and the...

Do you have a hostel named after yourself? Didn’t think so. But Chad Fish does! And that’s why he’s on the show! Chad is the owner of Hostel Fish, a place described as “a classy joint for travelers in downtown Denver.” Built in a former brothel that’s walking distance from some of Denver’s best nightlife, Hostel Fish not only has a ton of character, but it’s changing the game for hostels in the U.S. I met up with Chad the day after they threw their 2-year anniversary party, resulting in...


Ep. 21 | “Flight School” with Broken Bat Brewery | Live from Milwaukee, WI

When most people think of Milwaukee, they think of beer. This is accurate. But don’t let your visions be clouded by thoughts of Miller, Schlitz, and Pabst Blue Ribbon. Broken Bat Brewery is a newcomer to the scene, and their baseball-themed brewery is already a home run within Milwaukee’s exploding craft beer scene. In this edition of “Flight School,” Broken Bat Co-Founder Tim Pauly joins the Pubcast to take us through a flight of 4 summertime brews, while giving us a rundown of the...
