The Birth of a Podcast

Joey and Alec met during high school, and became quick friends. They currently attend the University of Nevada, Reno. One day, Joey was driving home from work and came up with the idea for a podcast called Niche. Even before getting home, Joey was on the phone with Alec discussing details. Six months later, they released their first episode.

Both are also quite competitive when it comes to ping-pong.
