Throughout humanity, dating back to even our most civilized ancient civilizations, humans have had a fascination, a fear, a panic about witches. And why is that exactly? Why do we continue to fear their powers or more importantly why do we even think they exist? Well, we're glad you asked because Grognostics jumps with both feet into the boiling cauldron to find answers with a new guest while one of the regular guests takes the day off, involuntarily. Halloween beers from Elysian and New Belgium.
As part of our Halloween week of spooky hilarity, we present the one, the only, the easily spooked, Sir Matthew. He reminds us that the scariest things are sometimes right under our noses as well as bringing to light what candy we all drool over each Halloween.
Have a listen and hear for yourself what's bubbling in the Grognostics cauldron this Halloween.
So the time has come for us to finally determine the question we've all been waiting for. Who exactly is buried in Grant's tomb? That and what is the most savage torture device in humanity's history? Well, listen and you shall find out.
Just as the nightmares from the last show are grinding to a torturous halt, here comes part II like a Brazen Bull hopped up on bath salts. On today's show, we dig our teeth into the torture device brackets and narrow down the field getting closure to the most badass torture device in history. We also talk about some introspective stuff while sampling some solid brews from Ommegang Brewery. Enjoy.
In a time period not so long ago, humans were being tortured by other humans. But you see, us humans, we're quite screwed up folks - a simple beating, Indian burns, or even a good ole' fashioned wet willy wasn't enough - we had to get creative. And when the ancient street corners of creative and sick met in human history you got, well, some pretty f'd up ways to torture people; torture devices. On this multi-show series, the Grognostic's crew along with frequent guest Jason Reedy (Dyatlov Pass, Foreign Accent Syndrome and others) match them all up with each other in a March Madness bracket format to answer one question - which is the most gruesome torture device in human history?
Disclaimer: There is an overabundance of expletives used on this show as well as... oh yeah the slight use of disgusting descriptions of human torture. Consider yourself warned. Come join us.
Beers tried on show are all from Ommegang Brewery in Cooperstown, New York.
