Episode 50 – Milk Drunk

Did you miss us? After a bit of a sabbatical, the Church Drunk podcast is back in action with a long-overdue bonus episode/introduction to the upcoming season. To help us celebrate the launch of a new chapter in Church Drunk history, we are joined by two very special guests: Mrs. Ges and Baby Ges! So grab a cocktail, put it in a baby bottle, and let's do this.

Episode 48 – Thirteen Drunk Little Clocks

Here at Church Drunk, we tend to believe that life gets a bit spicier when heroism is tempered with a bit of truly wretched villainy. I mean, who doesn't love a good fairy tale? And so, as our Summer Reading List continues, Dizzy and Ges invite you to put on your most indescribable hat and cry bejeweled tears of joy while wandering the winding corridors of Coffin Castle in James Thurber's classic The 13 Clocks. 

Episode 47 -Drunken Jitterbugging

Here at Church Drunk, we are big advocates of words. In fact, we use them regularly. However, we are first in line to admit that we don't have all the best words. That honor, in our humble estimation, goes to Tom Robbins. And if you want to explore some of the best words that Mr. Robbins has to offer, then we strongly advise you to pick up a copy of Jitterbug Perfume, a book about perfume and time travel and immortality and falling in love and pagan gods and so much else. Or just listen to Episode 47 of the podcast. Dizzy & Ges will fill you in!

Episode 46 – The Iowa Baseball Confederacy

Summer Sundays are for praising the Good Lord and savoring a refreshing beverage while watching (or listening to, if you're an audiophile) the game that God gave us. To us here at Church Drunk, it just seems like booze, baseball, and churchin' go hand-in-hand. With that thought in mind, join us for a close look at the spiritual and recreational benefits of W.P. Kinsella's Iowa Baseball Confederacy, a book for everyone who finished watching Field of Dreams and said, "I want more!"

Episode 45 – Dandelion Wine

Does the perfect summer read have to be about summer? What is the appropriate age to embrace the delicate brevity of life? Does dandelion wine give you a hangover? Join Dizzy and Ges as we tackle these and other philosophical musings in our exploration of Ray Bradbury's Dandelion Wine. I mean, it's a book named after booze...how could we NOT include it on the summer reading list?

Episode 43 – Drunk Alchemy

Here at Church Drunk, we love gold. It is, after all, the color of some of our favorite rums, lagers, tequilas, and other gilded boozy treats. So who wouldn't want jump at the chance to turn everyday items into golden goodness? Our next installment of the Church Drunk Summer Reading List takes a look at The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho, a book about seeking gold and finding it in the most unexpected places. So pour yourself a pint, throw a starfish into the sea (because it matters to that one!) and get ready for Episode 43 with Dizzy & Ges!

Episode 42 – Sabbath in Sitka

The Church Drunk Summer Reading List officially kicks into high gear as Dizzy & Ges tackle the first book on the list - The Yiddish Policemen's Union by Michael Chabon. If you have ever thought to yourself, "Hey, what if Sitka had become Jerusalem West during World War II...wouldn't that be cool" then this is the book for you! So pour yourself something cold and kosher (if that's your style) and pull up a chair for Episode 42!

Episode 41 – The Summer Reading Season

We here at Church Drunk are big fans of summer cocktails (as well as the cocktails that accompany fall, winter, and spring!), but when we are not drinking ourselves cross-eyed you are likely to find us stretched on a hammock and reading a good book. We are, in the end, hopelessly spiritual book worms, and it is from literature that we draw our super powers (Ges can tread water in a pint of Guinness for hours on end, and Diz can burn a hole right through you with a single gaze...sometimes even on purpose!). And so, we have declared that Season 5 will be the Church Drunk Summer Reading List! Each episode will cover a different book. Want to know what they all are? Well that's what Episode 41 is here to do!

Church Drunk Summer Reading List!

Summertime, and the living is easy...except when it's not. Regardless of how easy or not your summer may be, there is no better time of year to sit on the back porch (or wherever you like to read) and open a good book.
