Interesting If True
Interesting If True - Episode 1 - We Erupt Onto the Scene!
Welcome to the first episode of Interesting If True, the podcast that's interesting, if not always accurate though we do try to be. I'm your host this week, Jenn, and with me are our panel…
I'm Steve, and this past week has reinforced that I’d just about prefer to chew off my own arm than listen to another presidential press conference.
I’m Shea and this week I learned that in 20 years our world will be run by homeschooled kids taught by day drinkers. I
I’m Aaron and this week I learned that most of a project’s requirements will become apparent to you right before you hit record.
Now before I get into the first story of our inaugural episode, I want to give a brief intro of the hosts to bring you up to speed if you are just finding us from our previous iteration. I know it’s really hard to tell the difference in new voices, so maybe this will help. Plus, you’ll be in the know of the occasional inside jokes we affectionately jab at each other’s expense.
Starting with Shea, because Aaron has a complex about the double "AA"'s in his name, not his bra, causing him to be called upon first. We call Shea the Yeti because he's furry and furtively rarely spotted. Lucky for Shea, he found a mate in a real human woman, took his honeymoon to Ireland and Scotland and is completely colorblind.
Aaron is Canadian, has 7 sweettooths(teeth?) and an emergency travel pack of maple syrup, has a hard time with words and letters (both saying and spelling), and all roads lead to either Dune or Dr. Who. He started us on the podcasting path and will find any excuse for a Russian accent.
We all consider ourselves pretty skeptical towards the world and its mysteries, but Steve is the extra-pedantic Spock of the group. He has little to absolutely no time for nonsense, is the son of a Baptist preacher and Shea thinks he is older than the oldest dirt. He’s not really, but he did watch the 6 Million Dollar Man in its original run.
And I’m Jenn, a refugee from the Deep South and evangelicalism, grew up in a swamp and have a deep seated fear of space, space aliens and monkeys (weirdly, monkeys in space just makes me sad, not scared). Like the worst female stereotype I’m terrible at math and my voice is probably the easiest to pick out, unless Aaron is laughing really hard. It’s high pitched.
We all four currently live in Wyoming though none of us are from here, are varying degrees of nerdy, and like most all animals more than most all people.
So that’s us and now on to the story!
Jenn’s Recipe For Volcanic Pork
Possibly the greatest, or at least most potentially dangerous and involved, April Fool’s prank of all time.
I had a helluva time deciding on the first tale to spin, because like Scheherazade I’ve got 1,001 of ‘em. But I wanted it to be unique,
