Dinosaurs. Hell mustangs. Mad scientists. Folky cello players.
This week, Joel, Vanessa and Jared turn the Denver Diatribe into one of those awesome Saturday-afternoon Syfy movies where ’80s C-list actors battle it out against bad-CGI monsters. It’s all thanks to Greg and Meredith Tally of the Best Western Denver Southwest. You know, the folks turning their hotel into a dinosaur resort. And who helped bankroll a museum for science superhero Nikola Tesla. And who just had an entire cartoon in “The Oatmeal” dedicated to them. Yeah, those guys.
Somehow, the crew also finds time to dissect the Judgmental Denver map, celebrate the Lumineers’ world domination and ruminate over whether it’s time to put the DIA blue mustang sculpture out to pasture in some far corner of Hell once and for all.
GIVEAWAY ALERT! The Tallys had so much fun, in fact, they offered up a contest prize to end all contest prizes. That’s right: Subscribe to the Denver Diatribe via e-mail by February 13 to be entered to win a two-night stay at the fully remodeled and dino-fied Best Western Denver Southwest, along with personal dinner with the dinosaur hunters themselves, Greg and Meredith Tally. It’s the closest thing you can get to a helicopter ride to Jurassic Park, and all you have to do is subscribe to our podcast. Some restrictions apply, of course, like you have to promise not to try to smuggle out any of the Tally’s dinosaur DNA in a modified shaving cream can. Cuz that never turns out well.
