AP Podcast - Episode 101: Josh wonders why Matt doesn’t drink coffee and other takeaways from a rare in-person recording

August 6, 2019

The scene - a coffee shop in Asheville, NC.  Josh and Matt set up at an out-of-the-way table and proceed to record an entire podcast episode without anyone noticing.  At least they didn't notice if anyone noticed!

Josh had just spent a few days in Asheville on vacation.  Matt lives very close to Asheville, so they took the opportunity to meet up, push record and see what happened.  

In the end, they talked about coffee, techniques to engage an audience or guests, takeaways from visiting the Biltmore Estate, and irreverent signs that invite you into a business.  Llamas may have also been mentioned.
