Summer time means shirt time!

Okay, so a decent number of people have been asking about past Grickle shirts and how to get them. This got me poking around on teespring and I realized that you could now make a whole storefront on the site! So all my past designs are currently consolidated HERE:


And I specifically relaunched a campaign for the The Grickle Channel shirt. I need 20 orders by July 9th to make it happen. So if you missed out last time, head over there! The yellow version of the shirt is on a slightly more golden stock this time around (they no longer carry the shirt stock it was originally printed on). I think I might even like the new golden version better to be honest.

I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who sent podcast recommendations last week! It's been great to have a whole new pool of of stuff to sift through. I listened to a few of the Lore Project ones and man so good! It was making me feel a bit disturbed and sick inside but I couldn't stop listening.

I gave Dan Carlin's Hardcore History a try as well. I listened to the "Prophets of Doom" episode. Epic! It was about 4 hours long! 4 hours! And I ended up listening to every single minute of it. The story was fascinating and Dan's enthusiasm in telling it is infectious! He's like the best history teacher you never had. Really impressed. And I almost feel smarter for having listened to it.

I also re-discovered a past indulgence of mine on Youtube. "X minus One" was an amazing sci-fi radio show back in the late fifties. People like Issace Asimov and Phillip K Dick had stories on it. I would LOVE to hear if anyone has recommendations on anything else out there that is even remotely close to the quality and tone of these shows.

Okay, that's all I've got for today! Hope folks are having a decent enough day out there.

Why didn't I think you'd be a fan of old-time radio shows!

http://www.radiolovers.com/ is a good place to start. I'll recommend:

Dramatic stories with a tweest ending.

Frank Lovejoy as Randy Stone, a hard-boiled newspaper man who gets into trouble.

The better episodes have Vincent Price as "the Robin Hood of modern crime."

Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall operate a boating service in pre-Communist Cuba.

Have you listened to Welcome to Nightvale yet? It's a mix of The Twilight Zone, Twin Peaks, and the X-Files, all narrated by a local DJ. It's fantastic! Stuff They Don't Want You To Know is a great conspiracy podcast.

I am also a big fan of Old Time Radio! I was horrified by X-1 when I was a kid. Suspense is also great. I still remember hearing The Country of the Blind by H.G. Wells on that program.

So is there no option for unisex t-shirts? Most of them only say "Women's Fit Tee."

Hey Corey! Thanks for the recommendations! There is a men's/unisex option on the Grickle Channel shirt (yellow) if you look under available styles here:


It's the American Apparel Crew option for $20.00
