Amerikan Rambler's first female guest is an important one: his wife! It's also the first podcast the Rambler has done from his front porch. Listen to the soothing sounds of crickets as Sydney and Colin (aka Bun and Hawk) discuss marriage and kids, Pablo Escobar, and the high turnover rate of Foghat. Pull up a rocking chair, pour a glass of wine, and join these two crazy kids for a good ol' downhome southern PG-13 chat.

In this episode, Colin uses the Netflix drama Narcos as a jumping off point for talking about his fascination with the deep, deep South: the Caribbean and South America. Along the way, he discusses his trips to the Dominican Republic and Ecuador, bossa nova, and a cranky Massachusetts tour guide in Key West.

Colin's 41st birthday led to him getting a new computer, which he had mixed feelings about. He spent the anniversary of the battle of Second Bull Run at the battlefield, which provides lessons for even the most hardened Civil War scholar. Also, a showing of Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory at the Byrd Theatre last weekend in Richmond turns out to have been the best way to remember Gen Wilder.
