Always a great time to spread some cheer when your co-host has a birthday.. Well that birthday was a great time to give him an awesome bottle of Jack Daniels Sinatra Select, which of-course the other host was hoping that bottled would be shared. If you wait long enough, dreams do come true and Sinatra has made its way onto the Rails.. We paired it up with an awesome Diesel Unlimited for our “First-Third” review from Cigars International.. So what happened? Did we start spreading the news? Anybody else from the rat-pack show up? Well stay tuned for our podcast for all of these answers.. Train.. Train…
While we were recording, we started having a little bit of fun with our dueling video lines. We do have our Hotel Tango periscope line up and running with our podcasts. We don’t keep those videos out there but they are great ways to sync up with us during our live recordings for feedback and fun. At the same time, we will fire up the Hotel Tango facebook live line during the recent recordings for our 1 or 2 minute of fun with our facebook followers.. What most people will hear during our podcasts is some of the interaction that we have had with those people on the lines but what rarely makes the recording (because we are usually paused or stopped) is a lot of the entertaining conversation we have back and forth.
We have learned the following.. We have about 20-30 static followers that immediately jump on the periscope line as soon as it fires up. Granted that number jumps up and down when others get on the line but we have a dedicated group that always jumps online. Of those dedicated followers, we have learned that most enjoy heckling Rob over Eric. I guess Rob says some of the most obscure comments (even off line) to the point that Eric even has to say what??? However don’t think that Eric is left alone, all it takes is one of those moments where he can’t talk (which those usually hit the editing room floor) and boom….. They are all over him. He almost takes it as a challenge to see what the folks will say next but realistically neither of us can speak and love the joy of editing at times.
As we keep moving forward, we are really kicking around the idea of creating a new you-tube channel so you can see not only some of our un-edited podcast but those videos that sometimes never makes the audio. We got some exciting changes happening in the next couple of months for new ways to enjoy us both during our podcast, during recordings and who knows maybe on the radio. We got some lofty goals but at the end of the day, we enjoy drinking with our friends. We hope to raise a glass on our journey and have a lot of fun.
Now, we have said it before and we will keep saying it again. We are so very greatly with the awesome line up of companies we are working with during this podcast. We like to think of each of our sponsors / partners as part of our extended Whiskey On The Rails family. When you get to pair up such great products, it is really fun to come out and record every week because we stand behind everything we talk about and enjoy each of the products we get to use during the show. Even Eric and Rob get along during the podcast because of these great products and that right there is a miracle..
