For the fourth edition of People & Pints & Podcasts I was lucky enough to be joined by the always lovely, always bubbly Lindsey Chou. Lindsey and I have been friends for a year or so and our friendship consists of obscure references, weird jokes and lots of laughs. Lindsey also happens to date my roommate, and former guest of the show, Caz. Maybe one day I’ll have an episode with both of them, but for this recording I just chatted with Lindsey.
I tend to tease Lindsey about the “patriarchy,” which is why I included it in her introduction, but we have spent time discussing gender issues before. When not talking about gender issues, we fill our conversations with references to New Girl, Star Wars and YouTube videos. In the podcast we mention a strange Veggie Tales song and a Bad Lip Reading video. Clearly we have a weird friendship…
But a strong one! And I was happy Lindsey was willing to chat about craft beer for a little bit. We shared a bottle of Croupier from Idle Hands Brewing, which will be moving to Malden, MA. The Croupier is a Honey Saison “brewed w/ lemon zest,” and the citrus, spring flavors were very noticeable and very delicious. I described the beer as “rustic” at one point, a reference to the history of Saisons or “Farmhouse Ales.” Also, Lindsey found that the “spirit person” of Croupier was Sandra Bullock: strong, self-assured and “pretty.” Strangely enough, I thought of the character Tigger from Winnie the Pooh, don’t question it. I was thrilled that Lindsey dubbed Croupier as “her new favorite beer” and I too plan to return to this delicious product of Idle Hands Brewing.
I then asked Lindsey to elaborate on her time studying abroad in Granada, Spain. Lindsey shared her experiences on the thin roads of Andalucía, dancing with her host-mother and adapting to life back in Boston.
We shared plenty of silly laughs facilitated by a delicious beer and we hope you enjoyed the episode! Please subscribe to and review the show on iTunes. As always, questions, comments and suggestions are much appreciated. Thanks for listening!
