Mix Tape Edition!

You hear a song on the radio. Maybe it’s about a steadfast partnership, me-and-thee against the world. Or maybe it’s about losing faith in the system and questioning your place in the world. Does it make you think of Starsky & Hutch? It does for us! In this episode we pick eight songs and discuss what makes them perfect songs for this show.

Me & Thee & Thirsty: Episode 02

me and thee and THIRSTY

It’s that time again: when we take a break from talking about Starsky & Hutch and instead try drinks we’ve never had before and review them! Also, we still talk about Starsky & Hutch quite a bit. Hutch would be into kombucha, right?

In this episode we try two traditional kombuchas and four soda-kombucha fusions.

Episode Notes:

Tapuat Kombucha (we tried “3 Root” and “Lemuria”)

LIVE Soda (we tried “Root Beer” “Doctor” “Cola” and “Lemon Lime”)

Episode 20: Sharecon (part 3): The Flamingo Special

As the current runner of both SHareCon and the S&H Advent Calendar, Flamingo has a big hand in keeping the Starsky & Hutch fandom vibrant and alive. Come listen to me and Rachel interview her about what it takes to run a convention, a particularly disastrous SHareCon of the past, and what it takes to be in one fandom for decades.

Episode 19: Sharecon (part 2): The People of SHarecon!

What do all SHareCon attendees have in common? A love of Starsky and Hutch, and a desire to befriend other fans. Other than that, the differences abound! We set up a microphone at SHareCon and interviewed a flock of fans: fans from the original broadcast run, new fans just discovering the show, long-time con-goers, first-time con-goers, cosplayers, artists, vidders, readers, writers, and editors!
