manual podcast beards booze bacon japan travel bbb the itunes button v2What 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.

This week’s edition of Beards, Booze, and Bacon: The Manual Podcast covers a wide range of topics, from the bizarre (but welcome) deliciousness of alcoholic ice cream to the joys of off-roading dune buggies through Nevada. We also run through a quick overview of everyone’s favorite remote-controlled devices: drones.

First up? Alcoholic ice cream — how it happens, who makes it, and who can get it and where. Next on the docket for discussion is Associate Editor Chase McPeak’s trip with Polaris to drive their new RZR XP Turbo through the Mojave desert of far southwest Nevada, just outside of Las Vegas.

Finally, Drew Prindle, Editor at The Manual’s brother site Digital Trends, gets you up to speed on all you need to know about drones.
