Presenting Mai Tai T.V. featuring George and Hambone, the latest pop culture talk show sweeping the nation. This week, I will show you how to make an authentic Trader Vic’s Mai Tai per Beachbum Berry’s flawless directions. We will also discuss our predictions for the 2016 Royal Rumble, our thoughts on the upcoming Guns ’N’ Roses reunion and we will unbox the latest Star Wars Smuggler’s Bounty box from Funko.

Mai Tai T.V. is a freeform pop culture video cast covering everything and anything in geek culture, including (but not limited to) Tiki, wrestling, vinyl collecting, punk rock, gadgets, toys, video games, alcohol and more. Basically, if you are an aging punk rocker or a weirdo, you will love this show.

The first episode was streamed live on Periscope (follow @cultofgeorge) and uploaded to YouTube using the standard definition video that the Periscope app saves. I’m working on a solution that will allow us to shoot the show in tandem in HD (with real microphones) and on Periscope, so future episodes are better quality.

If you like the show, leave a comment, share on your favorite social platform or hit us up with a Like. If you hate it, we can take it. Let us know what you think.
