Episode 55: Chicago, Puns, and Live Football with Blogger Jin Laqui

December 13, 2019

It’s a spirited Chicago episode, y’all! I’m joined by Austin blogger Jin Laqui, who, like me, grew up in the Windy City. And we’re watching the Thursday Night Football game between beloved Chicago Bears and the visiting Dallas Cowboys. Watch this fun Bryzzo Souvenir Co. commercial and get misty-eyed as Jin talks about weeping when the Chicago Cubs won their first World Series in 108 years. What a time to be alive!

Luckily, you don’t have to be from Chicago to enjoy this podcast. Joey shares a story about a Boston Red Sox fan embracing the hatred of the New York Yankees crowd when he visited the Bronx earlier this year – who among us hasn’t wanted to silence the haters? Jin also does a REALLY weird ASMR with a bottle of tequila. And since there’s live TV on we’ll give commentary on random commercials and goings-on throughout the episode.

Additionally, Jin shares how she got into writing and food photography, including a fun award she won in college. And since we’re both fans of puns, it seems like a great time to jump into the magic that is the O. Henry Pun Off. Joey has a cartwheeling story, too! Neither one of us are great at cartwheels, either – but hey, they’re still therapeutic to do. Plus, remember calculator games? We’re covering so much stuff in this episode!

Jin works at Bumble, as well. If you’ve ever wanted tips on improving your dating profile – LISTEN UP. Of course, since we’re watching football, we each have some terrific tales from the gridiron. Have you ever played football with your friends?

Thanks for listening – be sure to follow Jin at The Laqui One or on Instagram!
