Beards, Booze, and Bacon hit its one-year anniversary in October. For 12 months (and counting!), The Manual podcast crew — host Greg Nibler, managing editor Nicole Raney, and food and drink editor Sam Slaughter with regular pop-ins from Associate Editor of Lifestyle Chase McPeak and Live Content Producer Jake Rossman — has been bringing you the best interviews, thoughtful discussions, and awful puns about topics ranging from barbecue to men’s style to camping and, of course, drinking.
What’s a redneck sous-vide? How does one become an IndyCar driver? What are the latest fashion trends right now? How do I read a wine menu? We’ve answered all of those questions and more with the help of amazing guests like chefs Hugh Acheson and Angie Mar; booze experts like the CEO of Harpoon Brewery, Dan Kenary, and wine guru Katherine Cole; and many, many more.
What’s that? Never heard of the Portland Podcast Festival? Get in the know, my friend.
So pleased to announce that the 'Beards, Booze, and Bacon' podcast from The Manual has joined the 2018 Portland Podcast…
The Portland Podcast Festival was founded in 2017 by Jason Lamb (Minority Retort), Sarah X. Dylan (Funemployment Radio), and Greg Nibler (also of Funemployment Radio). If that name sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the very same Greg who hosts of Beards, Booze, and Bacon (and Trends with Benefits and Between the Streams, if you’re fans of The Manual’s tech-focused brother site, Digital Trends). The idea of the fest was to bring together the city’s podcast community to celebrate some of the best shows, hilarious chats, and real discussion you can find anywhere on this planet. The lineup includes live performances from Beards, Booze, and Bacon, as well as other stellar podcasts in the Portland area.
The two-day fest will take over Landmark Saloon and Hawthorne Theatre on Friday, November 9 and Saturday, November 10, respectively. The Manual crew will be on stage at 6:20 p.m. on Friday at Landmark Saloon. If you’re in Portland, we seriously encourage you to come out — we’d love to see you! Tickets are just $10. And we may or may not be talking about these.
You can catch up on all of our back episodes on iTunes or your preferred podcast platform. If you have a question for The Manual podcast crew, give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org.
