Beer Diplomacy 112 – Bonus Edition – A Stretching Exercise

Stuart Tracte

An unscheduled, somewhat impromptu episode this week, with KoPoint family members Marc Lizoain of Urtak & Dan Patterson of KoPoint. We briefly discuss the inauguration, gun control, Lance Armstrong, and #Teoing. It was great to get back in the studio with Dan & Marc, and although short, you can surely feel the energy and excitement to get back to it!

American Conversation, EP 12 – Debates Matter

Two weeks ago, many commentators asked the question, “Do the presidential debates matter?” After the President’s disappointing showing, and Governor Romney’s subsequent resurrection in the polls, no one is asking that question any more. In this episode, Dan Patterson and Marc Lizoain provide an immediate reaction to the Vice Presidential debate. The Biden vs Ryan spectacle was surprisingly entertaining, as Vice President Biden provided more comic relief than perhaps he intended. Did this debate change the race? Listen in, and enjoy Dan Patterson’s malarkey and Marc Lizoain’s usual bunch o’ stuff.

The team gathers at the @KoPoint studio for the first presidential debate.
