Welcome To Brewtown Andy's Family Feedbag

As a website covering Marquette University basketball, it would be shortsighted of us to not pay attention to the Ignatian philosophies that Marquette University stands for.  Most notably, we have the philosophy of Cura Personalis, or, translated from the Latin, "Care For The Whole Person."  If Marquette University is going to care about turning out well rounded students and people, well, gosh darn it, I'm going to do my part to make sure that Anonymous Eagle is contributing to that mission.

That brings us to today's debut edition of a new weekly feature I'll be bringing you throughout the offseason: Brewtown Andy's Family Feedbag.  Each week, I'll pick some item of interest to me outside of college basketball, be it movie, book, podcast, website, or whatever, and explain what I enjoy about it. 

We'll begin our tour through my collection of odd interests with one of my favorite podcasts: Sarcastic Voyage.


Based on what they've brought to us through their first 107 episodes, SV co-hosts Ron "AAlgar" Watt and Matt Rowbotham can easily be described as "Purveyors Of Fine Internet Weirdness."  If there's something goofy on the internet, Matt and AAl are going to talk about it.  Here's a sample of the show, where Matt and AAl discuss the odd trend of ever increasing clothing options for video game characters.

In addition to the weird corners of the Internet, the boys enjoy engaging in shows regarding one particular topic that's near and dear to their hearts, which are absolutely not theme shows and no one should ever say that they are.  We've seen shows on Back To The FutureStar Trek, The Simpsons, Star Wars, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Ghostbusters, and most recently, Futurama.  Proving that they're never afraid to experiment with a show format, Matt & AAl recently recorded their first show in front of a live audience during the 2011 Emerald City Comicon.

The development of the show over the last 18 months has led to the creation of many popular recurring show segments, including "Spanish Lessons With Juan D.," "Never Scroll Down," and easily the most popular segment, "The Adventures of Nick And Willikins," the ongoing adventures of a young British man and his amazingly patient manservant.

You can find shows and show notes at the Sarcastic Voyage website or download shows through iTunes.  New episodes debut on Fridays.
