Minutes before "Taps & Tastes" opened, the Crew had the chance to sit down with the legendary Steve Dresler. If you're even slightly familiar with the craft brew industry at all...more than likely, you've heard about Steve. Many would consider him a pioneer in his field. Steve relays some of the highlights of his career, thoughts on the industry as a whole, and why he felt 2017 was the right time to retire.
Angie Pederson from KC Geeks joins the Crew on this episode. KCGeeks.com is a website "promoting and nurturing geek culture in Kansas City". Then, to really delve into their geekdom, Josh spouts off Marvel movie trivia questions to the group.
Plus Josh finally reveals his big project to the world...Roombatron! A self-aware, AI robot that's basically just an iPhone 6 taped to a Roomba that wears a normal human lab coat. Prepare to be amazed (or extremely disappointed).
'Run With It' is an alternative rock band trio based in Kansas City. The guys had the chance to sit down with them after their set at Boulevardia and dig a bit into their backstory, the band's hustle, and some elements that inspire their music.
The band consists of Miguel - lead vocals & guitar, Daniel - drummer & background vocals, and Ben - bass, keyboard, & background vocals.

The Crew was generously granted media access to different parts of Boulevardia. While most interviews were scheduled for the 2nd day of the festival, they decided to knock out somewhat of an 'intro' episode on the first day.
For those that haven't been, Boulevardia is a family-friendly festival that was held in the Stockyards District of Kansas City. An eclectic festival highlighting a variety of beer, music, and food...Boulevardia 2017 was an absolute blast!

After going thru the "33 Free Things to do in KC" list, the Crew derails (weird huh?) into answering more questions sent in by the pizza scientists at Pizza Hut.
Once again The Crew reads their most recent reviews on iTunes, which leads to the winner of Boulevardia tickets! They also inform the listeners about June being Chipotle awareness month. Plus, they fear an upcoming donut eating challenge for Kansas City Live at Top Golf.
