Preparing illegal deer meat, talking about Frida Kahlo with professor Maria Cotera, eating foods that shouldn’t be eaten together, and sharing cringe-worthy stories on this week’s Saturday Six Pack


If nothing else, this coming Saturday’s program promises to be eclectic. Remember the illegally-butchered deer we discussed during the last show? Well, its owner (Ben Connor Barrie) and I will be cooking it in the studio this weekend and handing out samples to passers by. And, as if that weren’t enough, we’ll also be joined by acclaimed University of Michigan professor Maria Cotera, with whom we’ll be discussing, among other things, the new Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo in Detroit exhibition at the DIA, and her work at Southwest Detroit’s El Museo del Norte. So, if you’re a fan or either women’s studies or wild game, this is the show for you.

And, once all of the deer meat has been consumed, and Professor Cotera has left the studio, we’ll be having that eating challenge that we talked about in episode seven, during which two grown men will face off over a plate of unappetizing food combinations. (Think kibbeh and peanut butter, or anchovies and butterscotch ice cream.) And, at some point during the night, Patrick Elkins and Jessica French will be dropping by to tell us about their upcoming event, CRINGE: a night of truly embarrassing stories. I could go on, but you get the point. Lots of interesting stuff will be happening.

If you’d like to tell your friends about the show, feel free to share the Facebook event listing. As of right now, it looks as though only a handful of people are planning to listen, but I imagine that our milliwatts will start becoming scarce once people find out that we’ll be cooking deer meat live in the studio. [Unless you live really close by, I’d recommend streaming the show online, which you can do either on the AM1700 website or by way of]

And for those of you who aren’t yet familiar with the show, and need to get caught up, you can listen to the entire archive on iTunes.

One last thing. We love phone calls. So please burn this number into your well-toned torso with a cigarette… 734.217.8624… and call us between 6:00 and 8:00 this Saturday evening. [Don’t make us call you.]

Oh, and if you don’t live close enough to the studio to pick us up on the radio, and you don’t have access to a computer, I’m told that, again this week, the folks at 826michigan will be hosting a listening party at their downtown Ann Arbor Robot Supply Store. So, if you can’t hear it any other way, or you’re just curious as to what Annarbourites look like when they listen to the radio together, head over to Liberty Street and pound on the door until they let you in.

Also, for those of you drinking along at home, this week’s beer is Bell’s Oberon.

[note: If you do go into the Robot Supply Store, don’t rub the breasts of their robots, like I’m doing in the image above. If you don’t know what you’re doing, it could be disastrous.]

    Be careful. The smell of roasting deer meat could attract strippers from next door.

    There was a Reddit thread on terrible food combinations and Nutella and Sriracha was at the top of the list.
