Self-proclaimed beer geek Don Tse shares how he came to be known as The Don of Beer, another Canadian traveller shares their embarrassment anonymously as a canfessional, and we keep geeking out when Tami Miguens joins the podcast to talk robotics, AI, and Calgary's tech scene.
Don Tse, better known as The Don of Beer, plans a Beastie Boys parody band with Josh and Jonathan, because these boys have to fight for their right to barley. Previously known as "Beers to You," Don's role as Calgary's beer guru lets him tell the story of Canadian beer, and he's got 20 years of beer geek-dom to back it up. His mission in telling the Canadian beer story doesn't stop with his trusty notebook though, as we learn that his beer import company famous for beer advent calendars will also be getting Canadian brews into the glasses of discerning beer drinkers across the world.
This episode's canfessional, titled "This is why we can't have nice things" tells the story of a group of Canadian travellers whose antics left them shamed out of Southeast Asia.
Our second guest this episode is Tami Miguens, co-owner of Calgary tech company Ripeda Consulting, and tech literacy education advocate. We discuss her volunteer work with Calgary high school robotics teams, which she explains is just one of many approaches to get kids comfortable with problem solving through code, preparing them for the jobs of tomorrow. The boys think back to one of their first exposures to robots: The Terminator, and Tammy assures them that the work she does with children is much more about project based learning and problem solving than it is about C-3PO and the T-1000.
