Episode #41 – Podcasts, Replicators and Bourbon

This week we kick things off with a discussion of some interesting upcoming events, the success that was Pandoracon and a look at some of Charlie’s birthday fun. From there the show turns to more of our favorite podcasts for a quick “round two” on this topic as Ginny Tonic and Charlie...

Why Do I Blog?

It’s funny how things you write in the past prove just as relevant today. I wrote this entry for an old blog I used to maintain at Comic Related. As I was looking for something worthwhile to say as I cruised past my birthday, I decided to take a look at this entry (originally penned on January 13th, 2008),...

Episode #40 – Cincinnati Comics Expo Plus Robots

This week we’re back as we share our stories from the weekend’s Cincinnati Comics Expo, talk a little about what we can learn about trust from robots, share a drink that didn’t knock our socks off and find our Motown-esque vide for a musical closer. Charlie Tonic Hour #40, ready for your...

Charting Unexpected Change

Life is full of surprises sometimes. Today, I decided to sit down at the laptop and get back into the old Charlie Tonic groove as it’s been far too long since I posted. As I write this, I’m feeling a bit more direct, a bit more honest and I find myself wanting to blog about my life a little....

Episode #39 – A Bit of Anime, A Bit of Mitt And A Bit of Beer

Ginny Tonic takes the lead plotting out this week topics for the Charlie Tonic Hour and a very interesting show followed. We start with some body modification as a new trend emerges within cosplay and it has an anime focus. From there Ginny found a very interesting angle to discuss yesterdays Mitt...

Episode #38 – The Apocalypse Returns But There’s Community and Wine To Be Had

We’re back! This week Ginny Tonic and Charlie catch you up on life and settle into a longer discussion of community and what it means to build friendships in the modern age. After coming together, they deconstruct the world a bit with a return to the ever-popular post-apocalyptic discussion. This time...

Episode #37 – A Short Bit Of Nada

Well folks, it had to happen. This week Ginny Tonic and Charlie simply ran out of time to build a full episode. That said, we have a “short” to share with you and it’s a drink segment. Kristen, Emma and Dan join Ginny at a local favorite restaurant, Nada, for the recording. Drinks were...

Weekend Plans?

Charlie here this week sharing with you a rundown of some of the best things to consider in and around Cincinnati (and this week Atlanta) this weekend! This weekend there is one things we want to highlight first and foremost. That would be the official house hand of the Charlie Tonic Hour, Doctor Bombay and...

Almost Famous

So there is a movie that I absolutely love and I plan to watch it, once again, before this day is done. The move is Almost Famous and for me it is a film that holds a mix of personal and emotional connections to this day. Let me paint a picture that just may bring you to the reason why I love this movie so...

Episode #36 – Put A Pin In It But Serve It With Beer

This week the Discourse Intercourse stories from the past week grows into a full segment on how make the most of a great beer. From there the discussion moves to Pinterest but along the way that chat takes a decidedly “Charlie Tonic” turn for the sexy as a copycat site with a very familiar name...

Episode #35 – Mars Rovers, Print Prognostication and a Bit of Honey

This week two things are a little different about the show. First, we keep it under an hour, which rarely seems possible these days. Second, the sound of nature infuses our podcast as we record with the windows open for a change. What hasn’t shifted is the constant conversation, which was particularly...

Print vs. Digital

So, I have this crazy notion that paper will be sidelined for digital within the next five years. I tend to shock people by saying that “paper will be dead within five years”. Once that grabs the attention, I like to add that that is “dead” with an asterisk. What is the asterisk? By...

Weekend Recommendations

Wait a moment, where’s Ginny Tonic? Isn’t she the one who knows best when it comes to a fun weekend? Well, that is true, but this week you are going to have to settle for old Charlie. Ginny is all tied up with a mix of things like solving world peace, ending war and famine in our time and even...

What’s In A Name?

I was tooling around Proust (a site which we’ve discussed previously a couple of times now) once again this evening and stumbled across a question it just made sense for me to answer. What is in a name? Do you have any nicknames? How did you get them? I’ve only had one nickname my entire life...

Episode #34 – Traveling, Podcasts and a Mountain Lodge

This week we have a road show for you. We’re not necessarily returning from a show, but we were traveling for five days and the drive back turned into the only chance we had to record so we made a theme of it. Learn what happened on the road, who we ran into and more in the Discourse Intercourse...
