Episode 146 (Part 2): Bringing Pizza Crusts to the Storming of Area 51



Make sure you listen to Part 1!

In this Part 2, we begin with an article:

The why buy a few slices when you can get the crusts already prepared for you? dept.

Pretty 52: A New Jersey Chain Is Selling Just Pizza Crusts And The Internet Has A Ton Of Questions

First, this is the place in question – Villa Italian Kitchen. If you’re in the area, and you’re lucky, you may just catch one of the Crew members picking up some of those Neopolitan pizza crusts.

A quote from the restaurant chain’s Director of Communications and Digital Market: “We know that the crust is everyone’s favorite part of the pizza, so skipping straight to selling pizza crusts only seemed like the perfect idea.”

As usual, we’ll be the judge of that. In fact, some of the other Crew and guests may go there, grab some crusts and head over to the new Chick-fil-A in town to get some chicken strips to go with them.

Next, Kym’s favorite segment:

The Firing Range!

The go ahead and storm Area 51, bring a supply of pizza crusts and chicken strips dept.

npr: More Than 1 Million People Agree To ‘Storm Area 51,’ But The Air Force Says Stay Home

In The Firing Range, this time there really is no firing. Well, unless the military has their way with these lunatics. The storming is an event scheduled to take place in mid-September described as a “fantastical” idea conceived of as a joke on social media, whose popularity has spread fast. The AV Life will be providing an on-the-spot reporter when it takes place (who happens to be on this podcast).

Kym’s back so she and Corey head up the teams as usual, and Kym picks first in what turns out to be possibly a highly strategic move. No, it has nothing to do with the storming, or even aliens. One of Corey’s team members points to how we, as AV nerds, must support the efforts of those rushing Area 51.

Breaking news: one of the Crew members announces a ‘Storm Area 51’ co-located event. Could it be TIDE? One of the guests is also announced as the on-the-spot reporter who will be covering the storming – and he does NOT prefer pineapple with his pizza.

After a dramatic debate, a concession ends this. Wait till you hear just how offbeat this one was (remember, no Maura).

For those going, proceed with caution. Or just don’t proceed, like the Air Force has so nicely instructed.

Sit back, plug in, grab a slice (get the whole experience) and join us as we live…

The AV Life.
