PODCAST – Tuesday, December 1: Useless Gifts; Tribe Members Injured By Pets; AJ’s Employee Of The Quarter Tribute

Chaz and AJ talk about the most useless gifts they have ever given, or received. Who even uses a bread maker? (0:00)

Lots of wind and rain yesterday, so lots of property damage today. Chaz and AJ had David Biller the insurance adjuster on to talk about what you are probably covered for, and what you should be concerned about. (7:02)

The Tribe was calling in the injuries they’ve suffered because of their pets, and Andre admitted to being bitten by his own boa constrictor. (16:03)

East Haven Police Captain Joe Murgo was on to talk about the rash of packages being stolen recently, and the simple steps that you can take to avoid having it happen to you. (19:35)

Tom Cantone from Mohegan Sun was on to make an announcement about next week’s (!!!) Chaz and AJ McDermott Chevrolet and Lexus Toy Drive. He put together a special ticket package that you can cash in any time you like for 2021. (24:50)

AJ has won Employee of the Quarter! Kind of, he’s sharing it with a co-worker (Congrats Marc!) but he did get a nice video made. Although, is everything said about him totally accurate? (37:24)

PODCAST – Monday, November 30: Phil’s Engagement; Darth Vader RIP; Chaz’s Thanksgiving

PODCAST – Monday, November 30: Phil’s Engagement; Darth Vader RIP; Chaz’s Thanksgiving

Phil got engaged to his longtime girlfriend, Amanda. Chaz and AJ spoke with both of them about the proposal and how it all happened, then spoke with Phil’s dad, Johnny A about who’ll be paying for the wedding. (0:00)

Chaz and AJ asked the Tribe about how they met their significant others, when it was revealed that Phil and Amanda originally matched on Tinder. One guy called in to admit he tried to steal an entire cheesecake on the first date, but things did work out! (16:22)

Mitch Hallock, The King of the Nerds was on to talk about the death of Darth Vader. David Prowse is the man that wore the costume for the original movies, and we hear what it may have sounded like if James Earl Jones had never been hired to do the voiceover. (19:32)

Chaz talked about his Thanksgiving meal which was excellent, except for one thing. A homemade cranberry sauce was no good, and then the person that made it called in to promise Chaz will never get any more cranberry sauce. (32:58)
