Watch: The Occ-cast with Billy Kemper
I've found that more than anything, enjoyment of the Occ-Casts, of which there's now been 39 episodes, depends on your mood.
Take this latest one with Billy Kemper for example: I was prepared to dismiss it, give it short shrift, mainly due to my only prior exposure with Billy being filled with macho cliches. Could I stand an hour of that?
But instead the two sit down on rickety camp stools, and after a brief bout of mutual pocket-pissing, settle into an engaged but not animated discussion about big waves. And they dragged me with them. No hilarious tales nor over the top chest-beating, but plenty of authenticity from a guy that appears very comfortable in his skin.
Maybe you'll be in the mood for it, maybe not, but I'm gonna call it one of the better Occ-Casts yet.
