Everyone has heard of the patron saint Patrick who chased menacing, reptilian beasts out of Ireland and into the sea. But few have heard of the not-even-close-to-patron saint, but all-around-awesome Irish beer-reviewer, Oisin. On today's show, to celebrate St. Paddy's Day Oisin graces us with some Irish folklore and sets up a difficult to pronounce Irish name game for us to botch. How exactly is Oisin pronounced? How about Caoimhe? Niamh? They're not how you're thinking that's for sure. Pour yourself a green pint and join us for some laughs as we get an early start on the biggest drinking holiday in America.

And why do the podcast hosts insist on sending him to his almost-certain-death on every show? Take a journey with us as we pay homage to our very own, Sir Matthew.

Imagine a city where the gaze of the citizens spanned the treetops. A place where 2,000 pound stones were moved with ease.  A land known today as make-believe, coming alive only in children’s books. You are imagining a lost city of giants recently exhumed in Ethiopia.  Was this ancient city folklore or were massive humans roaming the busy streets of this international trading hub as you and I would move about the streets of our cities today? Did giants exist in other parts of our history? Was this recent archeological discovery simply a marketing ploy set forth by the New York football Giants to sell more Eli Manning jerseys after their abysmal 2017 season? Join us on our journey to the land of giants but not before you grab yourself a nice cold pint. And make it a giant one.
