Join Stevie (aka UndiesCub) and myself (UNBTime) as we discuss how the jockstrap was invented in the late 1800s to provide support for bike jockeys riding on bumpy roads. It became popular among athletes in various sports and was even used as a medical device for hernia support. The history of the jockstrap has been documented in various articles and books, and this podcast is dedicated to exploring its origins and evolution.

Fun Fact it was invented in Boston close to where Stevie is located. We talk more about jocks, cups and more. This is a first in the Brief History series. We will be bringing you much more history about men’s underwear in every episode. Send in what you want to hear us talk about or any interesting articles, videos, or facts that we should look into and include on future podcasts.
