Adventures In Design (general)

Hammer Time X is upon us and the cast is taking on the McDonald's menu in all of its thirty two item glory. Mark, Tavo, and Hammer reminisce about the food that made them into men and use our tried and true system of democracy to determine which foods will advance and what falls by the wayside. Breakfast. Dessert. Sandwich. Snack. Division by calorie packed division square off in a food fight to the finish with only one true victor left standing when the carnage finally subsides. Along the way, your boys drop the secret to making a McDoogle, unmask the bagel industry not based in New York, and mix ethnic delicacies to create all new gourmet experiences. Toss in a few stories from Hammer's innovative employment history at Starbucks and a few other antics that ensue and you have yourself a Hammer Time that will have you say "I'm lovin' it."

Summer brings us all together at beaches and barbeques across this melting pot of a great nation and there is no better way to give the season a proper send off than The Unity Episode with the cast of Hammer Time. Hang out with your best podcast friends Mike Hammer of Violent Gentlemen, Mark Brickey, and the guest of honor, Gustavo Jaimes, for a rollercoaster of ball busting so good that even you will be screaming "eagle." It's been a wild month and there are plenty of stories to share from being backstage with Rancid to winning The Shitley Cup to almost dying with a very sleepy One Star Jones Uber driver. You'll want to settle in and purchase some snacks from the dream vending machine these goons put together because this entire episode is going out to everyone in the spirit of unity. So if there really is a war going down between your brothers tonight then as one stand together because it's Gus's big day on Hammer Time.

Talking Points

  • Gus gets gifted a very patriotic safe word.
  • Work shopping the Dream Vending Machine. 
  • Vibe Teching for AID. 
  • Pacing out your Pop Tart, TastyNudies.com, and revealing the Donettes flavor that smells like sunscreen. 
  • Smoke breaks for straight edge kids. 
  • Kentucky based automobile engineering hacks, shaking your head out of the photo, and mob based government mandates. 
  • Row classification. 
  • Can you taste the rainbow?
  • Hostess Pies on the road to the Betes, fur on your fingers, and stiff arming Blizzards. 
  • Work only vending machine purchases. 
  • Letting in the Winn Dixie crowd. 
  • Striving for 600% more, reminders of your social status, and counting wrinkles on your Uber Driver's forehead. 
  • Three Rogue Territory blouses and lightly used luxury vehicle dilemmas. 
  • The Gently Used Shitley Cup. 
  • Watching Rancid with The Rats, starting with "are you," and the official cake of Hammer Time. 
  • Johnny Appleporn keeping the kids analog, a postcard from The Pickle, and a carefully crafted email to all the Eventbrite flakes. 
  • Frat Boy Humor gets old and isn't expected. 
  • Top summer time memories.

Episode 31 Daniel Danger "50 Shades of Blue"

AID 31 is so full of industry insiders and design related discussions, it's nearly overwhelming, but before we dive in, Mark shares with us his relationship issues with Monday Night Football.

Everyone's excited for our extensive interview with the one and only Daniel Danger.  He reveals his “Sting Method” for maintaining stamina while creating his signature, heavily-illustrated prints.  We talk limited editions, timed-editions, dropping out of school, Cowboys and Aliens, and we don't stop there. Just what makes Daniel so Dangerous, anyway?  We're bringing you a colossal, 31
st episode of Adventures in Design,  loaded with design and illustration info and a man-sized appetite for full-sized Snickers.
