About the podcast
Topic: Antlerboy and JP welcome the first-ever, all male and exclusively British guest roster. It’s a veritible sausage fest, except its more like Bangers. Come give a listen as we mash it up (see what I did there?).
The episode starts with Antlerboy not being his usual joyful self, some would say “hacked-off”, “fed up”, or just “down in the dumps”. And it all come down to too… Too long stuck indoors, too much disruption to business, too long a hiatus from life, too much time to contemplate his failures, just too much of everything negative for too long. It would appear some people do not do well in a sensory deprivation chamber.
Let’s see if our guests can bring him out of the funk.
Our first guest is Paul, who does not help Anterboy’s state by predicting there will not be a second wave of COVID, but rather one long, extended wave. Thanks, Paul, Anterboy is headed for the window-sill. But Paul does go on to share that the antidote for companies is to either generate cash or preserve cash.
We welcome back John who bellies up to the bar. John’s remedy to it all is to live a life of sex, drugs, and rock-and-roll. Okay, John, you have our attention. But then John starts talking about being in the bath contemplating Maslow’s heirarchy of needs and, in the middle of his mescaline-induced haze… NEXT.!
As John stumbles aside, Andy snaps his fingers to place his order. We all know its rude to snap your fingers, but he’s from Scotland. As we are taking his order, we ask how he is (just being polite, ya’ know), and he tells us he is “outstandingly mediocre”. Apparently, he is upset that he won’t be taking a holiday anytime soon.
Finally, a breath of fresh air walks into the Inn. And right behind them is Peter. But Peter has actually been having a pretty good go of things lately. Work is going well and his Mrs Peter is having him do a bit of gardening. Most important, he has had time to poodle about and contemplate life, what is important to him and what is not, and what he might do in retirement.
By the time last call is shouted out, the mission has been accomplished. Antlerboy is definitely in finer spirits.
A really fine, if sometimes dour and esoteric evening, at The Outliers Inn. We are sure you will enjoy giving a listen-in.
