033 Libby Ballengee
Happy Independence Day, Beanies. The Idiots are celebrating the beginning of the U.S. with the end of their show. That's right, this final episode of Coffee with Idiots features Libby Ballengee: writer for dayton.com, Gem City Podcast-er, and advocate of the Dayton music and arts scene. She stopped in to talk hometown pride, her origins as a podcaster, and some outdated tech that even Brandon Berry didn't know about. This episode is brought to you by tearful goodbyes and free audio software.

032 Super Diesel Returns
The Idiots are back at it with an old friend of the show. Daniel "Diesel" Hood came back on to get a few things off his chest. This time, he talks about his own comeback with his radio show Ohio is on Fire as well as some past conflicts with his former superiors that tried to keep his dream down. This episode is brought to you by caffeine and alcohol (not together, of course).

031 Trevor Ginsberg
This week, up-and-coming stand-up comedian Trevor Ginsberg (@TrevorGinsberg) sat down with the Idiots to discuss his brand new comedy career. He also treats our ears to a sample of his beat-boxing talents, effectively blowing Tyler's mind. They talk millennials, obsolescent media, and the impact of hip hop in this episode riddled with audio difficulties. This episode is sponsored by ourselves, because we don't do ads anymore.

030 Kyle and Michael Andes of RIND
For this milestone episode, Kyle and Michael Andes dropped in to talk good old rock and roll. They are the respective lead singer/guitarist and drummer of Dayton rock band RIND. They talk influences, creative processes, and the origin of their band name. Two RIND songs, "Dancing on the Oceanside" and "Lame Brain," are used as interlude music with permission. This episode is sponsored by nobody because ads are annoying.

This week, the lovely Laura Rea stopped by unannounced to scare the bejesus out of the Idiots. They discuss her new hair and life styles that come with her recent retirement.

024 - The Revenge of the Sab
When in doubt, bring in a good friend for a repeat guest. This week is the return of Sabareesh Sundaravel: college buddy, app creator, and resident Indian. They laughed, they yelled, and they almost cried. It got pretty deep. Plus, a tribute to the late Tom Petty.

022 Riza Ingalls
The Idiots like to meet people for the first time on mic during their interviews. Such was the case with this week's guest Riza Ingalls, a student and friend of past guests Andy Carper and Matt McCormick. The guys talk about Ayahuasca and DMT as well as how to stay sane in a world that wants to drag you the other way. Cool talk with a thoughtful guy, but first: toilet humor from Brandon Berry. This episode is sponsored by Loot Crate and GameFly.

021 Andy Carper: Redemption 2

020 Andy Carper: Redemption
For the monumental 20th episode, the first guest on Coffee with Idiots, Andy Carper, comes back to redeem himself after being part of what the Idiots consider their least favorite episode. Andy would be the first to tell you he's a guitar player, so they couldn't get through a chat without talking jam sessions, their musical roots, and the current state of the music biz. It's much more fun than episode one, and that's a promise. It ran a little long, so expect part two in a week. Sponsored by Loot Crate, and GameFly.
