Ep. 134: Praise Football Season

It's a throwback to early September, as this episode got stuck in the can for a month while we were addressing hurricanes and other some such.

Of course we tap into some "Why are you still in my life?" along with an "If we ran it."

Ep. 127: Sam '76

We give the new Sam Adams '76 beer a taste test in the Pappy's Products tasting room. In theory, it should be a winner since it's a blend of Boston and Philly history, right? Listen and find out. Also, we ask a few folks to "get their ass back on track" - we're looking at you, "guy with the misfits sticker on the back of his laptop!" In this week's edition of "If we ran it" we take a look at the latest fringe sports being broadcast on the various ESPN channels, and come up with an exciting...


Ep. 126: Can We Vote For a Queen?

It's time to drum up a little game we like to call "If we ran it," and you'll be glad we did this week, as we take a pen and some white-out to the "lines" in sports... ALL sports. Then, speaking of games, we play a short edition of America's FAVORITE new game - "Who Sucks More?" - movie edition. We ponder if the Star Wars movie franchises are in crisis mode. And finally, we get a little cheeky with the Brits and ask the question everybody's been feeling... Why is the Royal Family still in my...

Ep. 122: Cheesesteak & Chowder 122

So, who sucks more... bands who name their albums with numbers, or bands who don't name their albums at all? That's right, some of you favorite C&C segments are back with a fury, including "Why are you still in my life?", "If we ran it", "Who sucks more?", and "Get your ass back on track." We've also got 2 new weird items to check out in Pappy's Products and we do our traditional "Masters Draft" to kick off the golf Majors season.

Then we roll out the introduction of the Mix Tape Mafia - a re-branding of our fan-favorite music playlist episodes. We start things off here with the sequel to our famous "there can only be one" compilations but this time we are pulling the SECOND best song from every band. Enjoy the tip of the iceberg...


Ep. 120: Bean Bag Studios

It's our first episode from Pappy's new pad, aka "Bean Bag Studios," with genuine imported live concert hall reverb. We reflect on the death of the Olympics, whether or not teams should be called "Worlds Champions" and one of Jason's favorite bands gets called out for an atrocious album that nobody knew about. AND... we present our C&C movie towns Mt. Rushmore - i.e. the best flicks set in Boston and Philly respectively... with a twist!


Ep. 119: Beer Tasting & Super Bowl Recap

We're back from our winter hiatus! Yes, there's been a lot going on. Cut us some slack. We promise the 2018 C&C episodes will start to flow heavily your way as we head into spring. First, we bring you one that's been in the can for a few weeks - live from our guest studio host Nate LaNeve's beer tasting kitchen, we apply our Pappy's Products gobs scale to a flight of new craft beers. But not before Anthony kicks off the show with the angriest "tribute" to his Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia...


Ep. 118: Super Bowl Bound!!!!

It actually happened - Our beloved Pats & Eagles are headed to the Super Bowl!! Once again, Cheesesteak & Chowder guides the universe. Listen in to hear how it all went down on Championship Sunday. We've packed together 101 minutes of real-time reactions during both games, and squeezed in a bunch of other C&C favorites, including "If We Ran It", "Who Sucks More?", "Pappy's Products", and of course, no episode would be complete without a helping or two of "Why are you still in my life?"


Ep. 117: We Hate These Bands

We enter the cringe zone in 2018 by revealing our Mt. Rushmores of least favorite bands. Spoiler Alert: RHCP makes an appearance. There's some early NFL playoffs discussion as our beloved Pats and Eagles hold the #1 seeds and begin the drive toward Mission: C&C Super Bowl. There's a new chocolate covered potato chip in the Pappy's Products test kitchen, we play a new TV show-themed trivia game and a little bit of America's FAVORITE new game... Who Sucks More?
