What the Hell Were You Thinking
About This Show
When you went looking for a podcast and started listening to this one: What the HELL Were You Thinking?
Host Dave Bledsoe takes a weekly look at politics, pop culture, the media, the contents of his friend’s liquor cabinets, or anything that manages to pique his interests. Dave blends his distinctly left of center political world view with profound nostalgia for a lost childhood, disgust with hypocrisy and abiding love of Irish Whiskey (Jameson, we don’t do Protestant whiskey on this podcast) into a show which should appeal to the distinct palette of angry liberals, cynical Gen Xers and Millennials bent on ironically mingling 80’s music and modern politics. (See—I told you we have generational appeal!) The What the HELL Were You Thinking Podcast will have you asking the tough questions, or least what Dave’s deal with old televisions shows is all about. Honestly, he’s probably on the spectrum with this kind of behavior.

EPISODE 139: “Meandering Toward Mediocrity”
This week Host Dave Bledsoe realizes he was born mediocre, then achieved mediocrity and had more mediocrity thrust upon him. On the show this week we ask if a little mediocrity is such a bad thing. (It’s certainly common enough.)
Along the way we learn that Dave is not a disappointment to his parents. (They knew where he would wind up all along.) We assess the potential of most Americans and find the overwhelming majority of them not special. We spend a lot of time explaining why America the country is only So-So as far as nations go, and why we can never hold a candle to our colonial mother country. (I mean we can’t even occupy India!) We also clearly lay out how, culturally speaking, we will always operate at a deficit. (We are looking at Kardashians!)
In our Wayback this week, we explain why it is a VERY bad idea for nation-states to believe they are better than other nations--and you KNOW who we are talking about! Our Sponsor this week is Average Joes, there are better companies out there, but there are worse. We open the show with just an average working man and close with Ordinary Boys performed by YouTuber Pete Burnett (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eW0dLR6je00 )
