Gordcast
Gordie Adams hosts a podcast with his intrepid co-host Paul Bertolino. Along the way, special guests will show up covering such things as music, comic books, movies, memories and whatever else comes out. Bonus episodes of The Gordcast Shuffle are included in the same feed. Join us.

Paul and Gordie celebrate Boxing Day the old fashioned way, with fifths of scotch and Christmas stories aplenty.

Paul receives many unexpected packages and Gordie gets a great package from the EOC Holiday Exchange, filled with the smell of old comics and autographs. Gordie has found a new vocabulary hiccup and talks PROG. Paul is a great sleeper and doesn't know that WILLIE AMES is now THE BIBLEMAN.  SPACE 1999, FRANK ZAPPA, DWEEZIL ZAPPA, ALICE COOPER, TWISTED FUCKING SISTER, LITA FORD, Y & T, CHEAP TRICK, BLITZEN TRAPPER, PUGWASH, NRBQ, THE MUFFS and REDD KROSS all show up too.

Episode 61 - Happy  Life Day!

It's Pauls birthday so we sit down and talk for another rollicking GORDCAST. Paul does a little record shopping (shocking!) that leads to THE WHO's - QUADROPHENIA boxset. JETHRO TULL, ELTON JOHN, ROB ZOMBIE, JOHN LENNON and DIMEBAG DARRELL all show up too. Gordie checks out the temporary ice rink in downtown Napa and gives a postal update. The real gem of the night is talking about THE STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL from 1978, after being reminded of it from the EOC SKYPE N' DRAW night. (Featuring an excerpt from that conversation)

We close out with feelings of this time of year and unfortunately, black Friday madness.

An impromptu Gordcast rises from a sound check run through. Paul works with Photoshop and Gordie likes Curves, leading to learning riffs with KISS, from the Destroyer sessions.

Episode 56 - Everything You Always Wanted to Know About DAVID PRICE* (*...But Were Afraid to Ask)

Gordie goes on a nerd blind date with DAVID PRICE from Eleven O' Clock Comics. If you don't like Gordie's voice, this is the one for you. Who knew DAVID could talk non-stop for two hours straight! David tells us about every town he's lived in, how he met RENEE and meeting knuckleheads at comic cons that lead to podcast empires. We both root for the bull, have animal empathy and are oblivious to bi-racial relationship condemnation and sideways glances.  David says he will come back to another GORDCAST for an actual back and forth conversation and Gordie heads to A.P.E.  Another loooong episode, so enjoy!
