Drinks On Monday with The Strike Team

Dan is back in the fold for this week's super-sized episode! This week, the boys discuss their Valentine's Day weekends and the geeky gatekeeping surrounding the release of DEADPOOL. The guys touch on which R-rated movies that they saw at the show when they were way too young.

On the menu this week are craft beers supplied by the Blue Island Beer Co. including their collaborations with Underground Communique Records and The Rock Island Public House.

The Strike Team also discuss THE X-FILES reboot as well as some of their favorite episodes as well as KOLCHACK: THE NIGHT STALKER, Chris Carter's inspiration for his '90s take on conspiracies and the paranormal. The guys also discuss some of their favorite conspiracy theories ranging from the Kennedy assassination to the "cold envelope" theory that changed the NBA. On the paranormal end, a caller east of the Rockies chimes in with an out of body experience.

Bust out your tin-foil hat, and listen at your own risk. The truth is in the kitchen.

Featuring music from Mark Snow, Mike Donnelly, Icicle Works, Swag, and Ke$ha.

Enjoying El Rey's RIP YOUR HEART OUT MARATHON? Take a trip back to the halcyon days of 2014. It's the early days of Drinks On Monday: the fomat is not quite there, the music is different, the audio quality is worse. The guys suck down Jameson and Chicago's very own, fully krausened, Old Style. The Strike Team discusses Nicolas Cage in LEFT BEHIND, post-season baseball, and the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET series. There is also a brief digression into the aborted "Win A Date With Mike Vanderbilt" contest.
