That Just Might Work

Comedy Podcasts >

Unnecessary solutions to non-existent problems. The toothbrush. The popsicle. The blender. The inventions we use every day of our lives — what, you don’t have a popsicle everyday? These inventions that were invented before our time have been largely unimproved for decades. Is this because they’re perfect the way they are? Or is it that we’re so set in our ways, we’ve become afraid to innovate? Why isn’t there a spoon that better suits our needs? Join Jason, a former radio personality, and Jesse, an engineer by trade, weekly on That Just Might Work; a podcast where they will answer these questions (probably). You never know, you might learn something.
