Matt and Emily sit down with Alexis Lamper to enjoy some of DavidsTea’s Kenyan Tinderet black tea. They discuss Matt’s infamous AIM Running Man, conspiracy theories, and favorite teas. The mini-topic of the week is campfires, where we learn that Matt is really, really good at making them. Alexis’ guest topic is serial killers where they talk about true crime including Michelle McNamara’s book I’ll Be Gone in the Dark, DNA tests, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer, and more (including some movie-talk inspired by Quentin Tarantino’s upcoming Charles Manson movie).
It’s Matt and Emily all by themselves! They talk about the state of the podcast and enjoy T2’s Madagascan Vanilla black tea. Matt talks about his love of emo music from the 2000’s. They talk about bands like Thursday, Piebald, Brand New, Taking Back Sunday, Coheed and Cambria, The Early November, Death Cab for Cutie and more. They even talk Taylor Swift and Korn, but that’s not what this episode is about.
The debut episode of TeaBD has hosts—Matt Aromando and Emily Riggins—figuring out how to run a podcast and a discussion of tea (Paris black) and queens (the royal kind).
