Episode 14 of the Is This a Thing? Podcast!

"Hello? Is it Pork Rinds You're Looking For?"

Starring: Marc, Akshat, and Dan

Potential Things this week:  

  • Not Knowing the Proper Aisle: Should you be embarrassed if you can't find an item at a store? Whether you're looking for pork rinds or LED light bulbs, you're in the wrong aisle. The right aisle is at  www.amazon.com.
  • Cigarette Bans: Don't ever smoke indoors, but let the smokers kill themselves in peace. Or at least on public sidewalks.
  • Cellphone Speakers: Please don't play music/podcasts from your cellphone speakers in public. Or even in your home, if you can help it.
  • ITAT Etiquette Police: Who you gonna call when people are being terrible in public? ITAT! We'll be there with our bright pink Kevlar and tasers.

We start off Episode 14 by talking about the secretly uncouth Lionel Richie music video Hello. Then we talk about that embarrassing moment when you can't find what you're looking for in a store. What's embarrassing? You didn't order it online. Then we have a sad, tired discussion about smoking bans. Just leave smokers alone! They didn't CHOOSE to smoke! Finally, we get a listener question from Chris in Minneapolis. Listening to music through cellphone speakers in public. Is that a thing? No. But don't confront them, unless you want to get stabbed.

Special thanks to Fletcher Magellan for our new theme song, "Oh, No!" off his upcoming album. Listen to it, and other singles like it on his Soundcloud.
