Introducing “How Does That Happen”
Well, it’s finally come out. After months of foot-dragging, procrastination and my trademark second-guessing, episode one of the How Does That Happen podcast is here for your listening pleasure. The basic premise of How Does That Happen is to explore the mindsets, behaviors, and inspirations of official record holders, wannabe record holders, and should-be record holders.
Episode one, our test run, features Reno comedian, Jim Fleming.
Jim claims the unofficial, unverifiable record of having the oldest working flip phone of any person his age or younger in the developed world.
Fleming’s Flip Phone
In a disposable society where three-year old phones are considered ancient artifacts and video games are obsolete hours after their release, Jim stands tall as a guardian of technology past. Since 2007, he has continued to shun phone upgrades and the Smartphone revolution. Instead, he opts to keep his Samsung flip phone. Surprisingly, he keeps on trucking despite drawing scorn, ridicule and bemusement.
Jim shares his motivation (or lack there of) for his continued reliance and allegiance to a device that can simultaneously survive an atomic blast and subject its user to carpal tunnel just by trying to send a basic text. Originally from Reno,
Jim first started performing comedy while on the east coast pursuing a career in the biotech industry. He has performed in many of Boston and New York City’s finest bars, Chinese restaurants and finished basements and as such ,developed the thick skin possessed only by cocktail waitresses and door-to-door salesmen. He recently graduated from University of Nevada Reno with a Masters in Economics and has performed at Reno area clubs many, many times.
Enjoy Episode 1! Look for our upcoming podcast episodes. Future guests include Adam Thompson, whose goal is to become the world’s worst rated Uber Driver. Additionally, keep an ear out for stand-up comedian Sammy Obeid. Sammy performed stand-up comedy 1002 consecutive days in a row.
