Welcome to the Uncphew podcast! Uncphew is a creative collaboration between an uncle and a nephew separated geographically, philosophically, generationally, politically and several other ways that end in “lly.” We enjoy talking about stuff, and we often have fairly intense debates about things. We hope to entertain you… that’s the goal. Other goals: to make you think… to make you laugh… to be shockingly candid… to not be politically correct… (but not for the sake of being politically incorrect, and never to be biased, but rather to be honest)… to see both sides of every issues… to piss you off from time to time… to never, ever bore you… Only time will tell if we accomplish these objectives, but that you are reading this says you’ve made it this far. Please check out our shows and let us know what you think!
