10. Waterloo with Max Loring

This episode is one hour and seventeen minutes of hard-hitting questions followed by a fearless pursuit of answers. Which berry is Joakim’s biker grandpa allergic to? Did Napoleon figure it all out in the end? Death before decaf? Has Max always been playing too many video games? Seattle’s “utomsocknes” with a terrible fashion sense—where are they really from? Ohio or Florida?

That’s all from the first fifteen minutes, because pretty soon we arrive at the China question: wet markets, Chinese politics and concentration camps in Xinjiang.

Water of the week: Watermelon, Grape and Strawberry from Waterloo.

9. Plain with Lacey Starr

For our second session with Lacey, we talk about our experiences inside and outside the world of sexual harassment, then we touch on drugs and/or parenting. Again, a big thank you to Grey Block Pizza for sponsoring the episode.

Water of the week: Plain by San Pellegrino, Perrier and SmartWater.

8. PampleThree with the Ghost of Max Loring

For today’s episode, we monologue with the ghost of Max Loring about why we can’t just be happy for each other—why does everything have to be so petty and small-minded? Why do I want everyone else to fail?

This week’s water is a follow-up to the Grapefruit Sessions: Spindrift, Good & Gather and Kirkland Signature.

7. Cucumber with Ivan the Betrayer

This is our much anticipated interview with ousted co-founder Ivan the Betrayer. Working out of a family garage, Ivan and I attempted to produce a user-friendly podcast about Sparkling Water—staying up all night, tinkering with the recipe for hours and hours, manically talking to ourselves about the perfect format.

As you all know, Ivan abandoned us amid a power struggle over creative control. This might be the return of a disgraced co-founder, but make no mistake: Ivan is no Steve Jobs.

This week’s water: Cucumber Mint from Good & Gather, Múre Pepino from La Croix (Cúrate), Cucumber Lemon by Voss.

6. Peach with Lacey Starr

We sit down with Straight-Shooter Lacey Starr and talk memes and momos before wandering into the mysterious forest of Sushi. Many things are revealed during the recording of this brief episode, most notably we finally know who has a crush on whom—judge for yourselves.

Water of the week: Peach from Bubly, Ginger-Peach from Good & Gather and Peach-Nectarine from Talking Rain.

5. AHA with Chase Windu

And now we are asked to shelter-in-place. How long will this last? Will we ever be the same? How short is shortness of breath?

This morning we allowed ourselves “little a AHA sparkling water, as a treat.” And to Chase Windu, wherever you are: Stay Safe, My Brother.

This week’s water is three flavors of AHA from Coca-Cola: Grapefruit + Orange, Green Tea + Citrus, Bluberry + Pomegranate.
