Episode 13 – The Dudes of War

ep 13

Click to download this episode!


WAR is the word of the day. For starters, it’s a battle for the mic–4 dudes, 3 microphones, and everyone thinks their God’s gift to radio. Josh is back as Dude 3, and the Dudes welcome the latin sensation known as Nico discussing–at length–his views on Chilean Law, Peru’s new coast, and a sex monster from the Philippines. A twist on the Dude Brew Sampler this week, Dude 2′s sensitive side, and wrap it all up with a lighter side look at weapons and fear. Let the battle begin!

*This episode is laced with the musical stylings of Queen. Don’t sue us.


Dude 2′s Mystery Sampler of Intrigue!

New year, new dudes.  After a long, long, LONG hiatus, the Dudes get back in the saddle with special guest Josh sitting in as Dude 3. We’re talkin’ resolutions, professionalism, the year in film, Wally News, the revolutionary new Beer Church, and, of course, the Dude Brew Sampler Pack.  Join us as we shake off the dust and stretch the proverbial radio legs.

Episode 11 – The Dudes Reset

Click to download this episode!

RESET!  RESET!  Much like the archaic 8-bit Nintendos of yore, the Dudes press the proverbial RESET button and take things back to their roots.  No cannibalism, no nicknames, no beers from Wisconsin.  Just Dudes doin’ their thing…like inventing fashion statements such as “North Shore Gangster.”

  • Dude Brew!  The Sampler that Almost Wasn’t:  The Summer Montage from Odell.
  • Civilized Dudes!  Adventures in the Big City!
  • Culture Swine!  A summer movie breakdown and a heads-up on coming fall movies.  The Dudes make their picks.
  • Wally News!  No penis news–Reset! Reset!–but prepare to get puckin’ fumped about new Star Wars rumors, Transformers talk, Mark Wahlberg impressions, and the Affleck/Batman controversy continues (or comes to the North Shore finally), and what trumps the Vader Fridge???

Episode 10 – Dudes Gone WILD

Nature.  Wilderness.  Jungle.  Concrete Jungle.  No matter what you call it, the Dudes have to face facts–they live in the extreme north wilderness of Minnesota.  The ramp-up towards camp-out continues as a Dude 3 sits in to discuss survival in the WILD.

Probably not “Concrete Jungle.”

  • Hop Trouble – We polish off the last of the Wisconsin summer samplers: The Rush River Summer Mixer.  Only 3 beers in this thing…what’s the  mystery 4th beer?
  • Dude 3 in the House – Camping guru/masseuse/breadmaker Josh drops in to remind the Dudes to “Remember Nature” and prepare them for the North Woods.
  • Sidehill Gouger! – Mysterious creatures of the North Woods and the reemergence of the Wendigo…or 3 of’em?
  • Wally News – Unfortunately no penis news because the news gets cut a little, uh….short by a, umm, surprise guest.

Manning Up.  It’s like Cowboying Up, but without the hats.  The Dudes discuss a few things that will send their manliness straight to the moon while kicking back with a sampler pack that will have the testosterone bursting out of your body.

  • DUDE BREWS - Another Wisconsin sampler!  Stevens Point Brewery, a monster pack with 6 different beers ranging from very light to crazy dark–a full spectrum pack!
  • LESS POPS, MORE HOPS - The premiere of Dynamite Dude 2′s pop screen…and also the nickname “Dynamite Dude 2.”
  • MAN ITEMS – With the popularity of the Vader Vodka Fridge, the Dudes spitball plans for an official 2 Dudes fridge, followed up by “Top 5 Manly Items to Make Dudes into Men.”
  • WALLY NEWS – A very manly batch of news stories, strange laws, and advice to keep you on the “Man Path.”

Mikel’s Manly Show Notes

  • No real proof….but I think that’s the strongest sampler pack I’ve ever drank.
  • Apparently “manly” is a synonym for “vulgar.”
  • My Number #1 Man Item Pick
  • Cooking with beer!  Check out my other other blog for more Dude Brew action.
  • Thoughts on the cliffhanger?  Dig it?

The Dudes knuckle up as the Fisherman’s Picnic descends upon the quiet little town of Grand Marais.  Neither mutants nor robots NOR old people NOR ‘Sconnies could stop this episode from packing an audio punch!  Cowabunga!

  • Dude Brews – A very special sampler pack from across the border in New Glarus, WI.
  • Fish Pic! What the Dudes are looking forward to (and fearing, in some cases) about the biggest Grand Marais event of the summer.  Even bigger than Wally’s birthday.  (Shocker!)
  • Wally News – now with even MORE penis news.
  • D2-5 – The premiere of a new segment turns into an in-depth discussion of all things Ninja: Turtles, weapons, hopes, and dreams.
