One year ago we journeyed to the Radium City Brewery to see if the rumors of a locally made beer were true. We knew it was going to be something special when we tasted our first Radium City beer. Now, one year later, we have seen Radium City Brew expand to multiple restaurant and liquors stores around the Illinois Valley and Starved Rock Country. We were super pumped to sit down with Dennis, Adam, and Brian to catch up on things and see what the future holds for the best beer around.

Check out the link below to see where you can sample a tasty RCB beverage...

Episode 74 - Take Our Advice

The podcast returns with this beauty of a show. We talk a little about our summer fun and then a little story/lesson on our website outage. After that we hit up a bunch of topics like Mike Tyson's Punch Out, the local craft brew scene thanks to Radium City Brewery, Tangled Roots Brewery, and the Starved Rock Brewing Company. Fishing at the Hennepin Hopper Lakes was opened up, and reported to be awesome. Eating fish out of the river not too bad...? Then it gets deep with some relationship advice, Dreamwave Wrestling excitement, and a shout out to the awesome sports coverage from the local papers on Twitter. We finish up with John's soccer secret and a wrap up of the first ever IVpod Summer Movie League. 

We would like to thank the Music Machine of LaSalle, IL for contributing to this weeks's podcast.

This week on the podcast we welcome the Rock and Roll Wizzard, Tim Moritz to the show...! Tim hosted the popular Wizzard's Juke Joint for over 30 years playing hits from the mid-50's to the early 70's. The radio show recently came to an end with the announcement that the Wizzard would be retiring. On the show we talk to Tim about music, his start in radio, his retirement, and plenty of random streams of consciousness. We also do our best to coax the Wizzard back onto the airwaves, but perhaps in a new form...

The @IVPodcast is rocking this week with an episode full of surprises. First off we talk about the latest on the Starved Rock trail closures, plus a couple notes on the LaSalle Canal Boat. After that we jump into the big patent troll case against podcasters. Personal Audio has decided podcasters are too poor to sue. Nice. After the break things really get interesting when we decide to start randomly calling people on Skype. We would like to thank Rev (@revlo_ND) from the Revcast, and Brodie (@Brodie1138) from Quest Update for jumping on the show. We had a really fun discussion about all sorts of stuff. Rock on and stay posted, t-shirts are coming!
