The Netflix exclusive show Stranger Things is a huge hit and
rightfully so. Chip and Cern give you an intro to the show then an
episode by episode recap! If you haven’t seen the show head over to
Netflix and watch the first episode/ chapter.
Both Chip and Cern are enjoying a large pint of Blind Pig from
Russian River Brewery in Santa Rosa, CA. This brewery is most known
for Pliney the Elder Double IPA. Blind Pig is a single IPA and very
tasty. Chip goes on to describe the beer making process which
reminds them that there is a Chip and Cern Brew going around that
probably taste like an old shoe by now.

There is a little kid that is running around and runs into a
diner. Doesn’t speak, but is offered food and is starving. There is

circuit, stopping the fan. That is the first hint to the powers of
this little girl.
