Hold My Beer

Hold My Beer

By Grant Lucas
The greatest lessons are those we can learn from others. Buuutttt those go way over our heads. We ask the real questions - as crazy, ridiculous and off-the-mark as they may be. We A those Qs, play some games and tell some tales, all while enjoying a few beers with our buds. We're here for the beer, and it's time to kick it into gear.

Episode 12: Distract Me From Reality
Video games. Streaming services. Movies. Podcastery. Beer consumption. These are a few of our favorite distractions. And have they ever come in handy these days. We all need escapes from reality now and again (some of us - this guy - take ample time away from it) as a way to keep our sanity. With beers and hand and seeds in Cody's mouth... friggin Cody... we dive into the need for distractions every now and then. And then, we discuss what will embarrass people in five years, who we hate for absolutely no reason, and why pee pee makes it easier to build MOON SHELTERS! The Beer: Sunriver Brewing Co. Vicious Mosquito IPA Blue Moon Belgian White Coca-Cola, but it's OK, Cody has a doctor's note The People: Grant Lucas - @GrantDLucas (Twitter), @Grant_Lucas (Instagram) Cody Parr - @codyparr3 (Instagram) Cole Robeson - @cole_robeson (Instagram) Get In Touch: Twitter - @WelcometoHMB Instagram - @welcometohmb Email - welcometoholdmybeer@gmail.com

Episode 11: Staying Positive
First thing's first: In the history of podcastery, no topic and execution have ever paired better than here at Hold My Beer. Get to know Grant's older daughter and her lack of boundaries. Become familiar with Cody's other personality because the first few minutes of his recording never actually recorded. Then, learn how to remain positive in these trying times. As we did in this episode. From divulging facts we wish we never knew to discovering what we'd do if our 5-year-old selves inhabited our bodies to divulging which activities we'd enjoy seen done by specific animals, this episode has it all. Including our lack of technical abilities.

Episode 10: Self-Discovery
There comes a time in a young person's life when discovering one's self takes over. Now there are TWO times... insert rimshot here... From cooking to marketing to craftsmanship, the Three Muskebeers (patent pending) have picked up trades during government- and general health-mandated alone time. How? Well what the hell else are we SUPPOSED to do? How about discussing bad names to give children? Or brainstorming nicknames for public poopers? Or sharing an inexplicable tale of how one of our hosts cannot tell the difference between asparagus and green beans? Cody Parr is back, though hobbled. Brandon Johns is back, though deranged. And Grant Lucas is back, though pun-driven. Listener discretion advised. DISCLAIMER: As social/physical distancing continues, so, too, have we experimented with ways in which to record remotely. Apologies for poor sound quality, but it's getting better. Our life motto.

Episode 9: Keeping Your Sanity/Developing Mental Strength
Quarantine day... um... well it's Sund... or maybe... Thursd... uh... ahem... Quarantine is still on. It's gone on long enough that February doesn't seem like that long of month anymore, does it? It's during times like these that our sanity begins to crack. We start speaking like our kids, for example. Or wonder what the outside world was even like. So, in times like these, it's important to maintain a mental strength that can prevent you from snapping. Here at Hold My Beer, we take that to heart... by drinking beer (and Dr. Pepper) and answer general musings as we always do. From songs that keep us mentally steady to what educational mascots we'd develop, we here at Hold My Beer have all you need to stay sane... or the opposite...

Episode 8: 2020 Is Nucking Futs
We haven't even come to the end of the first quarter and already the year 2020 is going effin crazy. Consider all that has happened already: a near-WW3, Kobe passing, some Oklahoma nutjob with tigers and guns captivating the nation... and that's only the start. Three months in, and there's enough crazy in 2020 to power Black Sabbath's train. Here, we discuss all that is drunk about 2020 as we try to talk 2021 into starting sooner.

Episode 7: Quarantine Quorum - How To Outlast Isolation
We have been told to isolate ourselves, or at least to practice social distancing. Naturally, we're breaking ALL the rules. This is all to offer advice on which board games to avoid, which games we'd create, and answering all of life's seemingly unanswerable questions because we now HAVE that kind of time.

Episode 6: Creatively Creative... Depending On Who You Ask
When a show quotes Powerline, deep-dives into great business ventures ranging from waffle-makers to beer claw machines, you know you've done something right. Or so we tell ourselves... every week... REGARDLESS, today is all about the creative gene. What makes us tick, how do we get past creative blocks, and how many Ankylosauruses does it take to police a Costco. All this and more on.... HOLD...

Episode 4: Side Hustles
For one of us, it was boredom. For another, it was an entrepreneurial spirit. In any case, we each cannot go without a side hustle, a project we've taken on in addition to our everyday jobs. It's the and-one of employment. In a rare two-man episode, we discuss a life filled with side hustles, what menu additions are needed by major restaurants, and which partners Oreo needs to team up with NOW (and cut us in on the million-dollar deals).

Episode 3: Never Forget Forgetting
EMERGENCY MINI-EPISODE ALERT (insert siren emoji, here, thanks) There are some things in life you never will or want to forget. Then there are moments you wish you could. One of us has a life filled with those moments. In the first episode back from a two-week hiatus, we enjoy our first "themed" episode ... and probably learned a little too much about ourselves. Oh well. The Beer: Three Creeks Brewing Company Crowdpleaser IPA Cascade Lakes Brewing Co.

Episode 2
Certain questions get answers that lead to more questions. We find that out here. While enjoying the Kush Push (Pineapple, Hazy and OG) from Cascade Lakes Brewing Co., we discover a little more about each other: which world records we'd like to hold, who was once briefly a stripper, and what technology from yesteryear is missing today. Really, though, Brandon got us all wondering some stuff... that chair fall did something to him...

Episode 1
Oh, ho, HOOOOO, we're off and running. While cracking open from Fremont, 10 Barrel and Ninkasi craft beers, we brainstorm the best city/sport/team name combinations. We ask ourselves: What emojis are we missing in our lives? Which prop bets do we NEED for the Super Bowl? And why - OH, WHY - did we let Grant try to sing? All this and more... on HOLD..... My Beer.
