First on Santa's naughty list, its Blowin' Smoke #74! Direct from the Havana Room at Chez Rob with a full house of Cretins, this episode of Blowin' Smoke put a new spin on the Cigar of the Day with, not one...not two, but five Cigars of the Day and all a super secret mystery to those doing the puffing. Also, in honor of the fat guy in red, we laid out some holiday specials available only to Blowin' Smoke listeners from a couple of our prime sponsors. Plus, we shared some listener email, cigars in the news and more from our pop culture petri dish, as well as a new Minute with Travis and 5 Things. So, grab a cigar and a pen for Blowin' Smoke #74! Take advantage of our sponsors' specials, and have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
Look everybody! It's Blowin' Smoke #75! Just before Christmas, we gathered at King Beaver Cigars in scenic Monaca, PA, to welcome home our good friend, Sgt. Rob Kmetz from his recent tour in Iraq with the Indiana National Guard. Rob was nice enough to join the Council of Cretins for our review of the La Gloria Cubana Serie R Belicoso and share with us his experiences while in Iraq. Rob is one of many brave souls who have volunteered to put their lives on the line for our freedom and we are humbled and deeply honored to call him our friend. Also here on Blowin' Smoke #75 is a brand new Cigar Match to kick off the new year as well as listener emails, a new Minute with Travis and 5 Things offered up by Rob Kmetz himself. Check it out! We wish you a very happy new year and thank you for your audience over the last three. We look forward to an exciting 2009 with bigger, better things and more fun on the Blowin' Smoke Podcast. Long ashes!
