In our 8th episode we get weird. Well, weirder than normal, anyway. We taste some left-of-centre beers and contemplate what really makes a beer a strange beer. Also, and perhaps more awesome, Matt and Marcel get to pick their favorite shows from the small screen in Scum, Beer and Villainy’s first TV draft!

Expect much geekery as Matt brings out TV shows that nobody’s ever seen, and Marcel reveals that Andre Braugher’s last name cannot be pronounced properly. Ever. They also taste beers that have them literally at a loss for words. Warning: the word, “Wowie” is used at least once.

Additional Spoiler Warning: This show contains several spoilers for those of you who haven’t seen the TV shows Matt and Marcel wax lyrical about. So, if you’re a spoiler scaredy-cat, see the notes below. Of course, if you don’t want to spoil what comes next on the podcast, don’t read the notes either. Life is complicated, isn’t it?
