“Uncle Ben thought he would exude confidence on his first day of work doing sales in a call center. He had owned the same car since high school and thought it was really cool and drove it everywhere until it eventually broke down. His fancy city people clothes were purchased at a local thrift shop for the interview and for his first day of work. He wanted to appear as a true sales professional. How he got the job, we may never know!”

We are proud to introduce the The Awkward Family Podcast, a heartfelt and humorous look at the cringeworthy side of family.

In their first episode, Mike and SuChin explore the theme of marriage by talking with Mike’s parents, who have just passed a significant milestone in their own marriage and uncovering the mystery behind one of the most iconic photos on the website called, “Mask Boy.”
