Episode 1: Shrock for Cock

This episode, we introduce ourselves and let you know what you can expect from this podcast.

Beyond Reproach is a podcast about scandals and scandalousness in government and politics, and sometimes we’re pretty scandalous ourselves!

We discuss our working definition of “beyond reproach” and how it relates to the aim of the podcast. We chat about our nerves, the sound of our voices and the reason why all of our episodes will feature a vintage drink pairing. We learn about the origins of our delightfully old-timey episode cocktail- all the rage in the 1800s and how it ties into Stephanie’s scandal. This drink will be your late summer fav!

Also covered: newbie woes, Stephanie’s media blackout, disinformation, megalodons, and Tux’s food blog.
