Published on Saturday, December 30th, 2017

As we say goodbye to 2017 and begin to ring in 2018 we have our 40th episode of Oh! This Podcast (our Shawn Kemp episode). As we say goodbye to 2017 we reflect on some great topics related to our youth. We say farewell to the institution that was AOL Instant Messenger. Next, we talk about the versatile food from our youth Macaroni and Cheese. We look at the existential nature of how Macaroni and Cheese had impacted our lives and how society has been shaped by the blue box blues. Lastly, we talk about headphones. What is the story with headphones.?!?

Patrick Farrar


Patrick was born on a frigid midwestern night and was poised for radio success. From a young age he was told he was built for radio and the future of the medium. Some scholars say his ancestors are direct descendants of the Norse god Odin and pop legend Fergie. Along with graduating magna cum laude from Subway U he is thought to be the father of the modern day panini. In his spare time he enjoys moderate distance walks on the beach, debating whether his personality is more of Diddy or Jermaine Dupri, and the musical stylings of Fastball.

Steve Hombaker


Steve was born and raised in a suburb of Chicago (excellent). His achievements include multiple Waukegan City Softball Championships, a robust 180 bowling average, and a 2nd place finish in his 5th grade geography bee. He is believed to have one of the largest collections of stadium souvenir cups in the lower 48 states. In 2015 he loaded up his wagon with supplies, floated across several rivers, and settled on a nice homestead in California (Oregon is SOOOO 1843). Likes: breakfast cereals, dystopian fiction, constructive feedback Dislikes: ham salad, CBS sitcoms, vigorous stretching.
