Last week at Fingers, I published an essay about one of the most enduring and annoying myths in American craft beer: that the industry is 99% asshole-free. If you missed it, the story is live on the site, and you’re welcome to read it… OR you could listen to me read it and offer additional commentary on it in the first-ever episode of The Fingers Podcast!
This is my first solo podcast episode, and I edited it myself, so I’m really curious to hear what you think of it.1 I know the audio quality is not superb but it’s listenable, I think, and I’ll get better as we go. Comment your reactions—good, bad, whatever!—via the button below. I would truly appreciate some feedback.
Introducing a podcast is a way for me to experiment with new storytelling techniques for Fingers, and strengthen the pitch for when I ask you—yes, you, dear reader—to pony up some money for a paid subscription. That’s coming soon. But for now, just pop into the comments and let me know what you think about the boozeletter’s maiden podcast voyage. And as ever, tell your friends, enemies, and drinking buddies to subscribe to Fingers. Your ol’ pal Dave would genuinely appreciate the support.
