Uncool: Failed Fads and Terrible Trends

We humans are suckers for the latest crazes and fads, but it's easy to forget that today's TikTok dance will be tomorrow's Macarena. Today's iPhone will be tomorrow's Blackberry. Today's skinny jeans will be tomorrow's skinny jeans. You get the idea. 

 

Join the guys for a rollicking trip through the fad-tastic misfires of yesteryear, from carob to merkins. 

 

In this episode:

  • Water Beds
  • Carob
  • Merkins
  • Dance Marathons
  • Mailbox Baseball
  • Pogs
  • Magic Eye (Autostereograms)
  • Sea Monkeys
