Told you we had another big announcement coming.
Glen Macnow and Don Russell (better known as beer critic Joe Sixpack) are launching a brand new craft beer podcast, Bar Talk, which will be part of our Liberty Broadcast Co.
I’ll let Glen and Don describe the show for you:
Two of Philadelphia’s best-known media personalities have joined to create the first beer-focused podcast live from Philadelphia.
Longtime sports talker Glen Macnow and Don Russell, the writer behind beer reporter Joe Sixpack, have launched BAR TALK – a sudsy, downloadable hour-long conversation about all things beer.
BAR TALK features newsy updates on beer trends, taste tests, interviews with brewery personalities, and of course candid talk about the delights of drinking beer. The fun banter wanders from beer into sports and movies and pop culture – just as it would when two friends belly up to their favorite bar to trade stories.
BAR TALK is exactly the kind of witty, upbeat conversation you might find yourself overhearing at your favorite tap room. Crack open a cold one, plug in your earphones – or come out to one of the live shows.
Join Glen & Joe for their first podcast before a live audience at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, March 11, at Rose Tree Restaurant (1243 N. Providence Road, Media).
I’ve heard their demo– it’s fantastic. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with Glen and Don on this. Their chemistry is the perfect blend of beer expert mixed with everyman beer drinker. The hour I heard was approachable, informative and entertaining. This thing should never be enjoyed without the companionship of a craft brew (unless you’re driving, of course).
Bar Talk will be produced – typically live, on-location – by the folks at Wildfire Radio, who will provide the show with professional equipment, editing services and production values, and it will be available on all typical podcast platforms including LibertyBroadcast.co and our anticipated iOS and Android apps. Be sure to turn out for their first show at the Rose Tree Restaurant in Media at 6:30 p.m. on March 11.
To recap, Liberty Broadcast now includes podcasts from yours truly, WIP host Tony Bruno, the Bleeding Green Nation guys, Barstool Philly, 97.5 host Eytan Shander, Eagles writers Jimmy Kempski and Tommy Lawlor, Liberty Ballers, and now, WIP host Glen Macnow and longtime beer critic Joe Sixpack.* I seriously don’t know why you’d go anywhere else for your local sports listening needs. LibertyBroadcast.co.
If you’re interested in advertising on Bar Talk or, better yet, reaching the tens of thousands of listeners of the podcasts on the Liberty Broadcast network, shoot me an email.
*Fun story: I met Glen and Don for lunch (and beers) at a local brew pub a couple of months ago. Don was basically treated as royalty by the friendly manager, who immediately apologized and brought out a fresh beer upon learning that Joe Sixpack had been poured a cold one from the bottom of a soon-to-be-kicked keg. That’s power, holmes.
