Beards, Booze, and Bacon: The Party Planning Episode

beards booze bacon bronson van wyck party planning episode the manual podcast

Before getting into the finer points of party planning, though, van Wyck explains his origin story — it starts with a farm in Arkansas and also involves famed Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Dame Anna Wintour. From there, the crew gets into the nitty-gritty of throwing a party. Van Wyck coaches them in not only what you can do before a party, but how to manage the event while it is happening in addition to a number of other key party hacks. Needless to say, we learned a lot during this episode (who knew that just setting out garbage can of jungle juice was a bad idea?!) and we’re confident that you will, too.
