About This Show
Welcome to My Parents' Basement (MPB) Podcast! MPB is is a reflective life commentary, guest interview, and story sharing show hosted by YouTuber Ralph (and sometimes his lovely wife Lou) from Ralph & Lou (http://youtube.com/ralphandlou).
Broadcasting from their parents' basements, Ralph & Lou tell stories of recent comedic life events that brought them to living with their parents as a married couple, almost 30 years old. Ralph also interviews an array of interesting guests who define success on their own terms and live adventurously and intentionally, in hopes of "extracting life lessons from those well lived".

Episode 18 | Finding Will Byers: Our First Float
Welcome to Episode 18 of My Parents Basement! Today my brother, Kevin, and I went for our first "Float". After 90 minutes of floating in our own individual isolation tanks, we decided to chat about our experience in the Upside Down.
Float tanks, usually approx. 4' x 8', have a sealed door to block out light, and is filled with 10" of water and 200lbs of Epsom salt. This makes the water Hyper-buoyant, allowing you to float effortlessly on top of the water. It creates an isolated environment for you to achieve brain rest and relaxation.

"My Parents Basement" podcast is a result of several months of my concussion recovery and an inability to use screens because of visual impairment, but still talk for days. In addition to giving me a project to spend my time on, it satisfies my craving for social interaction after a long stint of hermetic living. I hope you will enjoy this experiment and join me as it evolves. I want to tell entertaining stories that provide life lessons and chuckles for all. Welcome to My Parents' Basement!
