Welcome to the Official Site of The Less Desirables!
The Premiere Pop Culture Podcast of North Carolina, the Southeast, America, and beyond!
The Less Desirables is a weekly podcast by Brian Attridge, Tim Beeman and Eugene Sims recorded every Wednesday. We cover an expansive array of topics, featuring movies, new music, TV, the latest sports news, technology, all washed down with a “Beer of the Week.” The idea is to give our audience a recap of the previous week’s news, while simultaneously previewing the upcoming week. We have a local, North Carolina flavor geared towards a national audience, but we never lose sight of our community. Check out our weekly shows in the “Podcasts” section, or you can download any and all of our podcasts for free on iTunes, Stitcher, Podcast Pickle, and Podfeed.
The Less Desirables, a pun on both the hosts themselves and the method to obtain the podcast material, scrape the scintillating news that falls under the mainstream radar. Today, with corporate media continuously pursuing the hottest story, The Less Desirables’ goal is not to be in the national news race. Through quality reporting with humor sprinkled in, our objective is to promote the people and organizations that are making a difference on both the local and national platforms regardless of their fame.
You can also follow The Less Desirables through our various social media links and blogs. However, it begs the question…
Is it Wednesday yet?
Brian’s Last (In-Studio) Show
Yes, it’s true! Brian will be leaving the show as he has accepted a new position in the Richmond, VA area. We hope to have him Skype-in later on this fall. To fill his position, we have several guests and gurus of the show — Tommy Priest, Matt Clark, Kristen Daukas, Chad Nance, and Carl Haigler — to fulfill his co-hosting duties. The show won’t miss a beat, and we look forward to Brian’s return in late fall!
August 20th - Mike and Lynn Horan from Growler Box (Raleigh, NC) joined us this week to discuss the future of transporting beer growlers! The Horan’s lay out their business concept, and sound design of the “Growler Box” on the podcast.
Coming to a brewery near you, the Growler Box prevents growlers from rolling around in the back seat of your car while driving. You can purchase one at their website for $25.
Before heading back to Raleigh, the Horan’s stuck around to discuss the latest in pop culture with the boys:
- Tim runs down the list of new releases on Blu-Ray, and reviews his Movie of the Week, “Who the F*** is Arthur Fogel?”
- Eugene has the latest in TV premieres, cancellations, and other news.
- Brian looks at NFL Training Camps, the 49ers’ new digs, the Oakland Raiders situation, and the immaturity of Johnny Manziel.
- New music, and a song titled, “Everyone’s Perfect” by be the moon.
- In Tech, we focus on police camera technology in light of the events in Ferguson, MO.
- Your Beer of the Week is Green Man’s Leaf Blower Amber.
