Introducing The Manual Podcast: 'Beards, Booze, and Bacon'

What new bourbon are we pumped about? Which hiking trail are we exploring? Why is the next supercar so cool? What trends are we following right now? The Manual is a website dedicated to helping men live a more engaged life. Each week, our editors and guests get together for a round-table discussion on what’s new, exciting, and unique in the men’s lifestyle world. While booze tends to dominate the conversation, we touch on all of our categories, from travel to grooming to food to fashion. So pop open your favorite brew, step into your man cave, and start streaming.

Beards, Booze, and Bacon is hosted by our in-house podcast maestro, Greg Nibler. Regulars include Managing Editor Nicole Raney; Associate Editor of Lifestyle Chase McPeak; and Food and Drink Editor Sam Slaughter. Shout out to Portland-based No Kind of Rider for our intro/exit music.

Expect a new episode of Beards, Booze, and Bacon every Thursday..
