Sometimes we have really great tape that didn’t quite make it into the primary episode, but that deserves to be shared with our listeners nonetheless.  This time we have tape that deserves to be shared with no one, hidden deep in a dusty archive, only to be unleashed several centuries in the future for the sole purpose of embarrassing our forebears.  But what the heck.  We’re releasing it now.

Please join us as we share one or five martinis with actor/director/producer Leon Ingulsrud who regales us with some of his greatest stories, including how his now wife Akiko duped him into meeting her father when he had already told her not to bring Leon home “in case the neighbors see him”.  And right on cue, Anson’s fiancé Darah makes a short appearance.  Enjoy.

We decided to do something fun for our holiday episode.  So we invited “Hell on Wheels” actor Leon Ingulsrud over to my place to share with us his love of martinis, their history, and how this gin-based, cultural touchstone has given him insight into what it means to be an American.  The result, however, was what you might expect.  Enjoy, and please remember to drink responsibly this holiday season, always have a designated driver, and DO NOT try this at home.  Happy holidays.

We mentioned that our friend and collaborator Jonathan Meiburg (who composed our theme music) has a new album coming out.  You can find information about the album “Loma” here.

Additional music for this episode of The Well features the track “The Alcoholic Blues” by Vernon Dalhart.  Additional music provided by Dee Range and Rick Cormier with their “I’m Prone to Gin, Naturally” via a Creative Commons Attribution License.
