We initially tried recording this podcast in our car, which worked about as well as you’d imagine. We respect our listeners too much to subject them to 15 minutes of air wooshes and the pitiable sounds of our pimpin’ 1997 Toyota Corolla struggling to get up to speed on the N2, so we rerecorded.
Unfortunately, we don’t respect our listeners enough to have a good time to re-record other than right before Collin left for work this morning. Which means you get the first AM edition of the HitchDieds in Cape Town Podcast, and abundant evidence of why neither of us will ever be hosts of The Today Show.
Here’s the breakdown of our yawniest, most-subdued episode yet:
00.00 Mysterious absence of an intro
00:17 Collin wakes me up
00:46 Introduction to Robin’s Morning Man Voice
01:13 Extremely disappointing wine tasting at Asara Wine Estate
03:47 Jack Nicholson is very manly
05:00 Super crowded hipster bar The Power & The Glory
05:40 Collin and I debate the details of the plot of The Lion King
06:25 We’re really homesick
08:00 Collin, juxtaposition means pretty much the opposite of what you think it means.
09:01 Shoutout to our favorite non-blood-related listener
10:54 EXTRA BIT: Shoutout redux, including ample demonstration of why we needed to re-record the would-be “mobile episode.”
Next week we’ll return to our regular posting schedule and energy level! Pinkie promise!
