Welcome to Episode 082 of Half Ashed, featuring special guest Barry Stein of Two Guys Smoke Shop and The Cigar Authority. Craig was traveling this week, Barry graciously agreed to sit in and host with me. So, a huge thanks to Barry. I chose the Insidious by Asylum for the show, and unfortunately Barry was unable to join me due to his lease agreement restrictions.
In addition to an excellent update Barry about his personal recent history, we covered stories from EP Carrillo, Crowned Heads, La Aurora, and My Father. In other topics, we discussed lots of legislative goings-on, and the validity of a couple new packaging concepts. So tune in and enjoy!
Next week, we will be featuring an Unbanded (#018, from Zedman) as our Cigar of the Week. I will be rejoined by my esteemed co-host, so be sure to check back in Friday night at 9:30pm EST on halfashed.com where you can catch us recording and participate in the chatroom.
