We will start some history of underwear podcasts and posts called “Brief History of Men’s underwear.” We will tell you about the origins of modern underwear, like the jockstrap. We will also tackle things like underwear in the 70s/80s, adverting of underwear, and more.

Undies Cub, aka Stevie, came to me with this idea, which I have always wanted to do, but he inspired me to do these fun shows. We have a few ideas worked up and on our list and recently recorded the history of the jockstrap and will do more of these!

I think this is a fun idea. It’s so interesting to find out how things came about. The hard part is there isn’t a lot of history out there on underwear. This means some shows will take some digging and our memories and opinions. For instance, I want to do a podcast about UnderGear, a powerhouse in the world of men’s underwear, and so many guys have a history that I think it’s essential to include some of our own stories about the brand. We have had the documentary of UnderGear, but I’d love to get a few guys to send in their memories of shopping and the gear.

If you guys have some great history ideas, let us know, or if you have anything to add to our podcasts, feel free to send us an email or DM, and we could share it on a future podcast.
