What new bourbon are we pumped about? Which hiking trail are we exploring? Why is the next supercar so cool? The Manual is dedicated to helping men live a more engaged life. Each week, our editors and guests get together for a round-table discussion about what’s new, exciting, and unique in the men’s lifestyle world. So pop open your favorite brew, step into your man cave, and start streaming.
For this week’s episode of Beards, Booze, and Bacon: The Manual Podcast, the round-table — Editor-in-Chief Cator Sparks; Associate Editor of Lifestyle Chase McPeak; Food and Drink Editor Sam Slaughter; and host Greg Nibler — discuss The Manual’s latest project: The Legendary Guide to Everything. Touching on topics as varied as the world’s fastest cars, the best food pairings ever, legendary American style, and famous last words from badass men, the team explores some of their favorite parts of this intense series of articles.
First up, Chase talks classic men’s fashion pieces such as bomber jackets, aviator sunglasses, and denim jeans, as well as a short history of the T-shirt. Next, Cator elaborates on amazing historic hotels you can still stay in, including one that was built by John Jacob Astor (of Titanic infamy) and another that contains a room that was bombed in WWII and has remained untouched every since. Finally, Sam brings it all together with a few of the greatest food pairings. Duos include cookies and cream, chicken and waffles, and steak and eggs. What’s your favorite?
