Episode 019 - Nickleback Haters, Yelling "Freebird", THE Morgan Freeman Gift to Poddybreak and Emilee's Day with Tim Hawkins

Episode 019 - Nickleback Haters, Yelling
June 29, 2017
Alan, Chase and Emilee keep it going in this continuation of Episode 018. Fro had to head home. And, Jordan is potentially going to become a daddy today. So, we have him the night off as well!

On this episode, there's a lot of "music talk"...favorite artists; artists you're supposed to like, but don't; favorite/worst concerts. We talk about Steve Carrel making Alan cry, more about Chase being in the movies and we play the clip that had folks talking...Alan's gift to the Poddybreak podcast: The Freight-shank Redemption by not-Morgan Freeman. Emilee talks about slinging "merch" and talking Apple Watches with Tim Hawkins. Chase makes a funny which creates a "spit take" from Alan...launching root beer across the room! And, Alan tells the story of Smashmouth playing for a private party he was at (his Cajun buddy kept calling them Smash-mout and insisting they sing their hit "Chinese Chicken"...Google and you'll get the joke)

We also give shout-outs to our favorite reviews and to one our biggest fans, Susan Grosshans from Utica, MI. And, we read some of our latest reviews! Please, keep hitting that "SUBSCRIBE" button!

Episode 018 - Alan, Chase, Fro and Emilee - Cliche Ghosts,  Alan's Infamous RV Story, and Emilee's Political Prowess
June 28, 2017
We're back!!! Thanks for your patience!
Alan, Chase and Fro are joined by Alan's eldest daughter, Emilee. On this episode, Fro (Jeffrey) tells us about his new job and his "desktop". Chase apparently has a ghost which may be the most boring ghost ever! Emilee helps Alan tell a very long, but very entertaining story of a 10 day RV trip their family took which may have scarred the Nolte family for life.
Also, Fro may be in for a special surprise come "Proctober", Chase tells of his and Jordan's road trip to Dallas. And Alan tells of his unfortunate ride to Dallas which he is thrilled to have "behind" him (pun intended)!

Episode 017 - Geoffrey Orr - Avenging Being Cut, 94mph Tuba Player, Buzzing The Tower, Batting Practice With Neon Deion

Episode 017 - Geoffrey Orr - Avenging Being Cut, 94mph Tuba Player, Buzzing The Tower, Batting Practice With Neon Deion
May 22, 2017
Alan, Jeffery, Jordan, and Chase welcome a local celebrity, baseball player Geoffrey Orr. On this episode, Geoffrey discusses being cut from our local university, rebuilding the program at UAM with 8 players and a 6'11" tuba player, the feeling of reaching the pro level and how easy it is for him to throw up.

We hear about playing in an alumni game in which he wasn't an alumni and why the pitcher "buzzed his tower"! Geoffrey tells us about his "hate/love" relationship with legendary college baseball coach Steve Goodheart and his experience at open tryouts with the Atlanta Braves at Grambling University. We listen as he tells story after story of his heading to Idaho Falls, ID, The Slump, rooming with Chipper Jones, meeting Jane Fonda, Halle Berry and Hank Aaron. Geoffrey tells us about being mentioned in Chipper's new auto-biography on page 81 revealing how he introduced Chipper to his first ex-wife. He also relays a funny story about taking batting practice with Primetime, Neon Deion Sanders and watching him in a foot race with a Dominican while wearing "...about 7lbs of gold around me his neck". He reveals the feeling of finding out his career is ending while in Macon, GA ("I never saw it coming"). We review the article written about Geoffrey called "The Greatest 21 Days".

Finally, we have to let Jeffrey know that his own wife, Amanda, is championship-winning clogger! Geoffrey has his fire rekindled with slow pitch softball. He gives his opinion on making the pros then versus today and his respect for girls fastpitch softball! Poor Chase can't escape the "nose" jokes as they come at "rapid-fire" pace. Jeffrey thinks Facebook Live is the same as the video camera on his iPhone. Alan expresses his love for the S-Town podcast!

We also reveal our "iTunes Review" t-shirt winner for this episode. But, the winner doesn't provide mailing info! If you know "Thelawnranger1985", please let us know!
And special STF™ Breaking News: Jeffrey has a new job!

On this episode, Ernie pitches his designer cat litter to Alan on a version of STF™ Tank, Chase says backstory 174 times, Jordan and Alan field a call from a Uber-fan, Ms. Nelda Beene. But, she is apparently infatuated with Jeffrey.
Also on this episode, we discuss
Ernie's wife and her "blow-out", Layla...the cat from Hades, Alan's puns and cerebral humor will keep Chase up at night, the famous statement "Elvis has left the building" began in our neck of the woods, Jordan has to have a visual when you tell him a story, STF has new rules...and Ernie almost broke 'em.
Finally, we hear why Ernie is always outside, Ernie's "love" for a local BBQ joint, the conclusion of Jordan's "Moscow Moose Knuckle Job Interview", Jordan has a "reserve" joke (when will he reveal it?), Jeffrey walks likes he is constantly about to fall, Alan has a terrible idea and the fact that deer make terrible passengers.

Episode 015 - Special "Fan-guest" Jerome Erskin -The Nokia 3310 Is Back, First Cellphones and Cars, ITunes Review Winner, Babe Ruth on Steroids, Russian Reality TV, Butt Whoopings

Episode 015 - Special
May 1, 2017
Alan, Jordan, Chase and Jeffrey welcome special guest-host Jerome Erskin. Jerome is our first listener to make it on the show with the crew! This is the first episode using our new format and some new equipment...and it shows after recording the longest intro in podcast history (mercifully edited by @Aaron_Willis). Jerome works for the power company. But, irony slaps us in the face when we suddenly lose power and Jerome simply says, "Uh, the lights are still on."  But, he does work for a utility company, so...(But, he was right. Diagnosis: Emilee stepped on our powerstrip).
We discuss the return of the Nokia 3310 cellphone. This leads to discussing our first cellphones and first vehicles. We reveal our first "iTunes Review" winner! This month it was "Beefy402" from the Fork Found Reviews Podcast.  Jeffrey's upset that everyone has a STF™ but him.  It's NCAA Bracket time (yes, this podcast is now dated and Jeffrey ends up being a prophet) and the guys talk about their picks. Jordan ain't in to it.
"March Madness" talk turns into debating steriod use. We also talk about high school fastpitch softball and Russian Reality TV. Amongst all this, a geography fight breaks out when Jeffrey is challenged to name a state capital. And the crew reveals to Alan that they never read my texts due to length and should be compiled into a novel.

Welcome to Small Town Famous

Fame is relative. It can be legitimate or undeserved. It can endure or be a "flash in the pan". Likewise, what defines a small town is subjective. What is "small town" to some may be "big city" to others. Our podcast is dedicated to stories or personalities that have their roots in a small town.

Even in a small town or rural setting, we are surrounded by fascinating people who have incredible or intriguing stories. Because of the enormity of this subject matter, we had to narrow our threshold of what defines a "small town" to a population of under 50,000.

Our goal is to entertain you with people who actually are famous, as we define "fame" today. Yet, they continue to reside in a small town. Perhaps you will have heard of them. If not, you will know them by the end of the show. Also, we will uncover folks who are not famous or even well-known in their towns. Yet, they are tied to an event or have a story that, if brought to light, would be deserving of fame. We will also discuss those who are in the shadow of fame while residing in Small Town, USA. Perhaps, they have a world famous relative and know the real celebrity when the spotlight is removed. Finally, we hope to bring you interviews of those who have achieved fame but acknowledge that their roots are deeply embedded in the "small town philosophy". And, of course, we can't forget those who may be infamous in our little towns. They're story should be told.

We hope to make you laugh, cry, get angry or possibly plain 'ole enamored by real people with interesting lives. In the end, we plan to figure out who is or should be Small Town Famous™. So...

"Are You Small Town Famous?™"

Small Town Famous Taylor Arkansas
