The Breakcast: The Beard and The Blerd – The First Encounter


It’s a meeting of the times. A collaboration to end all collaborations.

In short, it’s an epic podcast…epically silly, but epic nonetheless.

Pop Blerd’s editor-in-chief Michael ‘Big Money’ Heyliger and Pop-Break’s co-founder and editor-in-chief Bill Bodkin have been friends for years. Bill’s been a guest on multiple episodes of Pop Blerd’s “Blerd Radio” podcast. So, it only makes sense that these guys would get together to do a co-branded podcast.

In the first episode of The Beard and The Blerd, Mike and Bill talking about everything in the world of pop culture, and breaking each other’s chops at the same time. Topics include: “Born to Run,” music festivals, Louis CK, Mike’s age, and Bill’s ridiculous bar stories.
