Nick Nelson – Cities, Camping, and game conventions

Rob drove to Michigan for Mike Rapin‘s wedding and stayed the night with the ORIGINAL podcast host, Nick Nelson. Fun fact: not only is he Rob’s oldest friend, but he started podcasting with Rob back in 2007!

This conversation is loose and casual as most episodes are, but once we warm up we hit on some interesting topics such as ancient cities, big cities, and summer vacation.

If you hear any funky echoes, that’s because this was recorded in person. I fixed most of it, but hey don’t expect too much from me.


Music for this episode was recorded in the New York City subway.

Referenced talk about the origin of cities comes from the highly recommended Long Now Seminars: Cities: The first 6,000 years by Monica L. Smith. Go listen/watch!


Thanks for listening!

It would be cool if you give us a friendly rating on Apple Podcasts, or rate/favorite the episode in the app you’re using right now.

The Coffee Episode

0 minutes – 15 minutes: some updates about the podcast website and social media stuff.

More details and links:

We’ve got our website up and running! The HOPEFULLY easy-to-remember domain is joshandrob.com. We also set up a bunch of social channels like a public group on Telegram, and a Twitter handle: @sorrytopic.

Check out another “hangout” podcast: Getting Caught Up with a couple of more interesting people, Mike and Jeff.

The Beers:

Josh: mysterious beer sitting in the fridge for months

Rob: 21st Amendment IPA

The Coffee:

Rob has been getting really into coffee lately. He refers to The Coffee Podcast and about finding some online guides for making snobby coffee at home. Intelligentsia has a lot.

Josh on the other hand appreciates fancy coffee but is very lazy about it at home. He’s been using a Keureg some days, and other times he gets hours-old leftovers from his Airpot. One of those pump action things you’ll see at conferences and big meetings.

The Challenge:

To spice things up, Rob suggests a simple challenge to try something new for a week or two. We’ll report back with the results!

Challenge for Josh: wake up and make fresh coffee one morning this week. Here’s the French press guide. He also needs to write a bio for the website.
