Andy and I spent some time together reminiscing about some of our favorite episodes from last year. Before we announced which the listeners voted as their favorite episodes, we shared some clips from some of the ones we like the best. We hope you enjoy listening and remembering just as much as we did.
A big congratulations to our Best of 2012 winners!
Cocktail Hour Episode: Episode 52 – Ann McMan
Flicks & Swizzle Sticks: Tie – Women in Action and The Greatest Movies I’ve Never Seen
Bar Rag, Conversations at the Bar, and Last Call: Caring for Kara
Thanks to all of our wonderful listeners who took the time to cast votes. We couldn’t do these shows without you! We’re working to make the episodes of 2013 so good that picking your favorites next time will be even harder!
I hope you’ll check out my new show, Barbell, on Cocktail Hour. For this first show, I chatted with Cheri the Rev and Andy about my favorite go-to healthy foods. To recap, I talked about the importance of knowing your particular goals and having a plan to get there, including anticipating the hurdles that might get in the way. Armed with a plan, I was able to discover my own go-to healthy foods that help to satisfy my cravings for salty, sweet, spicy and crunchy when I’m feeling bored, hungry or stressed.
As I’ve said before, my vision for this show is to help facilitate a discussion about getting and staying healthy. It’s not about having a particular body or looking a certain way, but being happy in a healthy body that can take you wherever you want to go in this life. Please leave a comment or send me an email at bev at cocktailhour.us about what your favorite go-to healthy foods are and I’ll be sure to share them with the other listeners. Also, as we go forward with the show, I’d love to get your feedback about topics you would like for us to discuss.
In the meantime, find ways to eat healthy, keep moving, manage stress and most of all “own it” when it comes to your health. Peace.
Prolific novelist and all around cutie Nat Burns stopped by to chat about her books and writing career.
Not only does she share a reading from her new erotic novel, Gospel, toward the end of the podcast, she is giving away an autographed book to a lucky listener. The winner can pick any of Nat’s books to have personalized. All you need to do is leave a comment on this post no later than May 17th and we’ll announce the winner on the next episode!

Whoo! This episode is action packed – just like the author’s books. Cari Hunter is known for writing books that you just can’t put down. Hopefully, you’ll find this podcast just as exciting, but completely maiming free.
Cari joined me and Andy, and special lurker guest Nancy Jean, to talk about her newest release, Desolation Point, a thriller set, primarily, in the Cascades. And I’m not joking when I say this book is action packed.
We’re giving away a copy of Desolation Point and a copy of Cari’s first book, Snowbound (which is featured on episode 47). All you have to do is post a comment with your favorite part of the podcast, or something else interesting, and let me know if you’re interested in Snowbound, Desolation Point, or both. The copy of DP has already been signed by Cari so no further personalization is possible. Only comments posted on or before May 17th will be eligible for the drawing.
If you’ve not read Desolation Point yet, have no fear! This is a spoiler free show.
