DC 629 Podcrawling

We record during Podcrawl for this show, with discussions with Erk from ErkFM Metal Monday, Dave and Caroline from The Bugcast, Stuart from Insomnia Radio, and anyone else I can put a microphone under.We started with such good intentions but as the day wore on, the drunkenness drove is to talk about anything. We go to a pub with a silly name, and drink in public Trooper, Iron Maidens Ale. The peeing in the policemans helmet discussion has been omitted, as well as the comments about one of the attendees girlfriend being a stripper.
But we all had a good time, as the recordings in this show will prove. Bring on next year.
