Walk Inna Bar Podcast – Review
Have you ever had the urge to start a podcast with your buddies because you were certain that everyone else was sure to find your shenanigans and expertise as intriguing as you do? Thankfully, in this day and age of easily accessible, endless technology and media you can make that happen and that’s exactly what Doug Byrkit has managed to do….again!
A musician, an executive chef, and an actor walk “inna” bar and that’s exactly what you get with this group. Stimulating conversation, some laughs, and surely (“…and don’t call me Shirley.”) some relatable moments.
The cast’s chemistry is cohesive and well balanced. There certainly is no overt evidence of a power struggle among the players…..yet. (Go, Elizabeth!!!) It’s comprised of Byrkit (The Musician), James Enstall (The Actor), and Elizabeth Schuster (The Chef).
Byrkit (OddsLane) has been in the St. Louis music scene for more than 25 years, has toured the world, and been on many tours, stateside. Doug was also the brave soul who spearheaded my first podcast, RadioDanya. He’s a steadfast partner and I might be a wee bit jealous of James and Liz. If you ever run into him, be sure to ask him about their stop in Korea. You won’t regret it.
Enstall is an actor and on Geek To Me Radio; Schuster is the owner and Executive Chef with Tenacious Eats, a local hotspot to grab dinner and a movie simultaneously. The trio take their show on the road, visiting different local bars and breweries and bring with them their personal experiences with regard to a specific topic of choice for each episode.
In episode 2, “I Wanna Sex You Up”, the group shares stories based on their theme du jour, “Drinking Stories” and invited special guest, Favazz of KSHE-95 and The Favazz Tapes. You can hear Doug tell about getting blackout drunk in high school and waking up to find that he now has a girlfriend. Favazz takes us back to 8th grade (not a type-o, folks), Enstall’s contribution comes from high school in Germany and teaches us how to say “Fuck me” in German, and Chef Liz’s story so aptly is the name of this episode.
So, the next time you’re in your car and headed to the same day in and day out job and you’re feeling like Michael Douglas’ character in Falling Down (1993), check out Walk Inna Bar and live vicariously through these fools.
