Zero Carb Budweiser, Missouri’s New Madam, & A UFO Circles Georgia

Kathleen opens the show drinking an Iron City Beer from Pittsburgh, which is one of her new favorite brews. She tells listeners about her weekend doing shows in Columbus OH, Cleveland OH, and Pittsburgh including lunch at Primanti Brothers. She gives the Termites an update on her upcoming Special taping in Denver, which has been moved to June 4th. Kathleen has added a Grow-You-Own Bigfoot to her Pubcast desk and will post Before and After pics on her Instagram.

“GOOD BAD FOOD”: In her quest for new and delicious not-so-nutritious junk food AND in continuing her search for the best Ranch, Kathleen samples Lay’s Layers Sour Cream & Onion chips, which she thinks need more onion flavor and she doesn’t like the soft texture. She moves on to try Utz Ripples Fried Dill Pickle flavored chips which she adds to her top 3 flavors. She finishes with Branchero flavored sauce from Cleveland’s Branch BBQ Sauce, which she really likes and is going to try on her chicken wings during this Sunday’s NFL Division playoffs.

THE QUEEN’S COURT: Kathleen is SO excited to announce that Queen Stevie Nicks will be headlining Tennessee’s Bonnaroo Music Festival this summer, which she will absolutely attend with her friend Brian.

UPDATES: Kathleen gives updates on the latest conspiracy claims from the MyPillow guy, more Facebook legal woes(this time in the UK), and the Michigan woman who tried to have her husband killed via parody site

THE NEXT BUD LIGHT: Kathleen is excited to announce that Bud Light is releasing a new zero-carb beer called “Next,” or the next generation of light beer for the next generation of beer drinkers as Bud Light’s Marketing team describes. The new beer is aimed at younger consumers, such as Generation Z, who are seeking out the similar nutritional makeup of hard seltzer and the flavor of beer.

A FLYING DACHSHUND: Kathleen laughs while reading an unbelievable story from KMOX in St. Louis, where a man saw something fly above his car and then drop something. That something was a lost dachshund named Fiona. The driver rescued the dog which survived the drop by the owl and eventually connected with the dog’s relieved owner via his Facebook page.

BIG MACS FOR LONGEVITY: Kathleen is amused reading an article from Philly where a 106-year-old woman credits her long life to faith and Big Macs.

SPRINGFIELD MO GETS A BUCEES: Kathleen is thrilled to read an announcement that Springfield MO is getting a Buc-ee’s travel center since she visits Springfield often to golf Johnny Morris’ Big Cedar courses and visit the gigantic Bass Pro Shop.

HOLLYWOOD MADAM MOVES TO THE OZARKS: Kathleen reads an article announcing that former Hollywood Madam Heidi Fleiss is moving to the Missouri Ozarks after an incident with her pet parrot in Nevada, and plans to open a no-cage parrot sanctuary near Mansfield, MO. Kathleen laughs as she anticipates Fleiss’ first interaction with hillbillies in the area when the Fall hunting season opens.

GEORGIA UFO: Kathleen reads an article outlining the events that led up to a flight attendant photographing a triangular-shaped UFO rather than the Milky Way somewhere over Georgia. Kathleen and Paddles try to define a “naked alien.”

“HOLY SHIT! FOUND IT”: As part of her new Pubcast segment about “finding old things that should have already been found,” Kathleen reads a release that scientists in England have discovered a large sea dragon’s fossilized remains from the bottom of a lagoon.

HORNED HELMETS PREDATE VIKINGS: Kathleen is shocked to read an article where 2 horned helmets first discovered in Viksø, Denmark have been traced back to the Bronze Age — dispelling myths that they originated from the Viking era, according to research published in the historical journal Praehistorische Zeitschrift.

WHAT TO WATCH THIS WEEK: Kathleen recommends watching 5 seasons of “Hell On Wheels” on AMC or Amazon Prime
