With a brief thaw from their long wintery deep freeze, the Cretins gathered around a hot stove for some herfin' and called it Blowin' Smoke 214!  Supplied with a new Cigar of the Day, we lamented the lingering long winter but felt hope in the approaching Cigar Crawl in May. Chris Kelly joined in for a new Smoke Buzz which sent out a new clarion call over Pennsylvania's new tax and spend governor's desire to raise taxes (again) on cigars...as well as everything else that isn't already taxed. The ripple effects of such a tax will effect cigar smokers across the country.  Our weird news stories seemed to follow a certain theme, while the "what the chicks are reading" segment followed the (ahem) usual theme. Plus a new 5 Things from Cretin Jeff had him reminiscing about his college fraternity days.  So dress in layers, fire one up, and click play for all that and more with the Cretins and Blowin' Smoke #214!

With resolutions already a distant memory, it's Blowin' Smoke 213!  New year...same Cretin losers! Some things you just can't change, but their is a certain beauty in Cretin mediocrity. It's predictable...the perfect balance to the unpredictability of the Blowin' Smoke Podcast.  We kick off the new year with a fun show featuring special guest Tony Bellatto...a cigar retailer (Havana House) in northeast Ohio AND owner of La Barba cigars...a young boutique brand with growing fan base. Tony talked to us about, of course, La Barba, and about growing up and into the family business. Tony is also a very highly rated sommelier and talked to us about that and how it plays into cigars and others things too.  Our Cigar of the Day is Trill from the fine folks at Villiger Cigars and our area rep, Robyn, checked in with some extra info on the Trill. Plus, we awarded a winner in our new year's resolutions contest with Commonwealth Cedar Spills and 262 Cigars. Clint Aaron checked in and ended up choosing our winner.  Chris Kelly checked in with a new Smoke Buzz, and the assembled Cretins each drafted a team for the big football game party at the end of the month. Who do you think secured the best team?  All that and more as the Cretins roll into 2015.  So, grab a few nice sticks and settle in for the herf. It's Blowin' Smoke 213!

Oh, what fun it is to herf with the Cretins all day long... It's Blowin' Smoke 212!  With the Havana Room heaters cranking a combined 50,000 BTUs, or burning tobacco units, we gathered for a pre-holiday herf complete with a new Cigar of the Day...the Leaf & Bean by Oscar Connecticut. It's a cigar with a local connection most of us have been familiar with but had not had the chance to review on the show...until now.  We also hooked up with Chris Kelly for the latest Smoke Buzz, and had a surprise call from none other than Skip Martin of RoMa Craft Tobac that lead to a great conversation about his company, living (and eating) in Nicaragua, and looking ahead.  Tom of Commonwealth Cedar Spills joined the conversation to talk about a New Year contest, along with 262 Cigars, that you could win. Listen for the details!  And if that wasn't enough, Fred Rewey of Nomad Cigar Company called with an update on his role as "Candy Commissioner," and hint at a thing or two that may or may not be on the horizon.  Plus, what the chicks are reading, a virgin Cretin 5 Things, and some idiots on Hangouts!  So, grab a few sticks, fire one up, and settle back for all that and more on Blowin' Smoke 212! Booya!
