Behind the story: 

Warning! If you are offended by stories about drinking, excessive drinking, underage drinking, lying while drinking, false accusations of misdoing to cover up past drinking, and/ or poor judgement before, during, and after drinking, this episode is not for you.

This episode is brought to you by Matt Flanagan, who wanted to tell drinking stories on St Patrick’s Day. We brought in two specialists, Colleen Basis and Seth Cohen, who braved 90 degree heat in March (sorry East Coast) to tell stories from their wilder days.

This podcast is dedicated to Alan Zibel, who has officially earned the title of Tell It Anyway’s number one fan for his excellent tweets about the show. Thanks, Alan!

Production Notes:

This was the first episode where I didn’t have to use a noise filter to remove the mysterious rattle! It’s not so mysterious, it’s an exhaust fan and apparently it has an off switch. So this time I was able to notice the subtler acoustic issues with the room — a constant vibration coming from some other equipment on the roof. So I did a gentler noise filter on that and it seemed to work.

Then there was the issue of Matt Flanagan’s laugh. It is a decibel busting wonder, and someday I am going to get the waveform on his laugh tattooed on my person. But since I didn’t want it to blow out your eardrums, I did my best to manually dilute the impact of his laugh. Hopefully I did my job, but just as a precaution, maybe don’t be washing the delicate glassware?
