The Bicoastal Hootenanny 0012: “Bon Anniversaire a la Louisiane” and “Chris Cariker Celebrates National Poetry Month”

Bicoastal-Hootenanny-LogoThis week, Adam makes sure to remind the world that he won the MVP award at the 2013 West Monroe High School Alumni Baseball Game and humble-brags about the scab that is still on his leg. Nate then shares the great news that, according to a recent study, the city with the biggest average penis size is New Orleans. Chris Cariker, an Okie, LSU alumnus, and current Chelo, steps into the studio to recite some of his poetry (if haiku counts as poetry) in honor of National Poetry Month, National Jazz Month, and Louisiana’s 210th (or 201st?) birthday.

In “The Probe,” there is a new twist in the story of Paul Kevin Curtis, the Tupelo, Mississippi, Elvis Presley impersonator who now appears to have been falsely accused of sending letters containing ricin to President Obama, Senator Roger Wicker, and Mississippi judge Sadie Holland. Nate then shares some zingers from President Obama at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner, and Adam laments that the entire country pretends that they are at all funny. Chris’ accent conspicuously shifts to the south as the boys pay their final respects to the late country legend George Jones.

In “JD’s Office,” Adam talks about watching Coach on Netflix, Nate talks about reintroducing himself to The West Wing, and Chris analyzes about Batman: Under the Red Hood and other animated films in the DC Universe.

After a quick break, Adam tells the somehow-awesome tale of skipping out on Dr. John, Ray Charles, and Fats Domino at JazzFest 1999 to see the Goo Goo Dolls in Baton Rouge with a girl he liked at the time. This segues into “Balls,” where Adam talks about not watching the NFL draft and gives an NBA Playoffs update. The show finishes with Nate & Adam talking about Tommy and why The Who bassist John Entwhistle happened to write the two songs from the rock opera that have to do with child sexual abuse.
