Episode 234: Dia de Gringos
Show Notes Episode 234: “Dia de Gringos”
This week Host Dave Bledsoe honors the spirits of his ancestors by drinking an entire bottle of Irish Whiskey in one sitting. (How this is different from a normal Friday night is open to debate.) On the show this week, we engage in a little cultural appropriation and try to create a Dia de Muertos that white people won’t feel guilty about. (Not that any of us feel “guilt” over such things.)
Along the way we learn some sad facts about Dave and how he keeps friends. (Hint: he is very bad at it). Then we meet the cultural ancestors of White People in America, John Wayne, Howard Zinn and Fred Rogers and learn how to honor them on our special day. (Are there cigarettes? You betcha!) Finally, we teach you how to construct a culturally appropriate White Person Ofrenda and how to host your own Dia de Gringos festival! More importantly, we learn the horrible truth about Fred Rogers.
Our Sponsor this week is Revenant.com, we make coming back from the dead simple. We open with Stanley Tucci’s immortal performance as Muerte. (For DEATH!) and close with a Death Metal neighborhood.
