On episode 7 of the #NoFakeBrews podcast, Mike and Rob discuss the sensitive topic of Anthony Bourdain and other celebrity suicides. CNN wants to help. They are running public service announcements for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.
The Brewmance discusses why just giving out the phone number falls short of what’s needed. Though, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is a good place to start (and seriously call 1-800-273-8255 if you need it). And to be honest, more discussions like they have in this episode is what’s needed.
As always, they’ve brought a craft beer along for the conversation. Today’s choice is Goldwater Brewing’s “Dukes Of Haze” IPA. Rob’s been on a hazy IPA kick and wants to know what Mike thinks about Goldwater’s offering. They rate the beer on The Brewmance beerometer and have a very personal discussion about why Bourdain’s suicide receives more attention than the 22 military Veterans who take their own lives every day.
It’s not all doom and gloom though. Mike may or may not even sing an unrelated song on episode 7. It’s worth discussing over a beer as Mike and Rob do what they do best. Drink and have interesting conversation about news, sports, life, or parenting.
