Are you yearning for the warmth, friendliness, and cheer of a good local pub? Drop by "Four Guys Walk Into a Bar..." and sit in on the conversation. Whether it's serious or silly, you'll walk away satisfied.

How It All Began
One day, a couple of us were talking about our favorite radio programs and podcasts and why we like them. We realized that we're really drawn to the ones that make us laugh (do we listen to Car Talk for advice on cars? We do not). And we realized that we're lucky enough to have a group of friends who make us laugh like that. So we thought, We should talk with those guys more often. And maybe, we thought, other people would enjoy those conversations as much as we do. So we turned them into a podcast.

Hey folks!  Do you feel like you've been doing the Time Warp the past few weeks?  We sure do.  (If you don't know what we're talking about, you really, really need to go see the Rocky Horror Picture Show... but not right now.  Go see it at a theater.  At midnight.  And tell everyone there that you've never seen it before.  Trust us.)

Anyway, our summer schedules are all over the place.  Some of us have family camp obligations, others have trips, and so on.  So our Four Guys... has often been and we've had difficulties getting the files moved around and uploaded in a timely manner ... you've been getting our weekly recorded show... less than weekly.

We're sorry.

Not just because we kind of sort of promised all of you a somewhat regular product.  ("Regular" in the "every week" sense -- clearly not in any other sense!)  but we value it ourselves. 

We Shall stabilize our schedule, rest assured.

The upshot is, the newly posted episode ("The bacon atom") is actually last week's episode... and there won't be an episode this week, because neither of the Guys who can record episodes is available.  The overall frequency of episodes won't suffer, because we posted two last week ("The Habanero Infusion" and "Hunny").  Of course, we posted those because we were behind a little, but... well, like we said.  Summer Happens.  Craziness.

Anyway.  The erratic schedule has been detected and will be handled.  Enjoy the new one... and if you'd like... relive one from the archives. 

Until next episode.... "Stay cool".

– The Four Guys
