Title: Pitch Month: Back With Burgers
Run Time: 21 min 53 secs
Host: Luke Rodgers
Panelists: Oktober, Nabbit, Major Monocle
Topic: Pitch Month: Best Burger and Where?
We’re continuing Pitch Month, where we put topics into a hat and see what comes out. This edition happened to be a topic from Major Monocle… “Best Cheeseburger you ever had and Where?”
Oktober shuts down Major Monocles topic with something even better. We’ve talked about this miracle sandwich before from Melt. It was the Godfather (Lasagna on a grilled cheese sandwich). The judges allowed it.
Major Monocle tells the tale of the best cheeseburger he ever had…however it was not the cheeseburger he was seeking. It all started with a planned trip to the Thurman Cafe, he ultimately ended up down the street because the line was waaaaaay to long. And of course, he can’t remember the name of the place! The panel is not convinced that it actually existed in normal space and may have been some weird Twilight Zone thing.
Nabbit laments that he really doesn’t have anything to bring to the table on this topic. Mainly because he doesn’t really seek out burgers when traveling. He does state that bacon is essential to a great burger.
Luke’s best burger was in Kansas City, KS. They had taken a burger and worked bacon into it. That along with fried onions, barbecue sauce and cheddar cheese…amazing. However the exact location of said burger remains a mystery because of Luke’s horrible memory (or possibly the Twilight Zone thing again).
End Segment: What Are Ya Into?
Major Monocle is indulging in the Fat Guy/ Motorcycle Lifestyle. The panel discusses his safety equipment, the type of bike and his skill development. (Also because it’s called the ThunderCat…which lead to several renditions of this)
Oktober has been fan-girling over the band Ghost. She talks about how she saw them live in Detroit and their influences.
Luke’s been reading “Born to Run” by Bruce Springsteen. It’s made him go back and revisit some of those classic songs with new eyes. Also the opening line (which he butchers a bit in the podcast…because he was about three drinks in) caught his attention… “I come from a boardwalk town where almost everything is tinged with a bit of fraud. So am I.”
