This is part two of the series. At this point I’m not sure how many parts there will be because I have several more stories recorded to share. I do know that there will be at least a part 3, though!
The first story is from Julie Hill about the first time she hung out with a gentleman that she’d heard so much about. (there was some build up). Julie also created the artwork for this week’s podcast, inspired by the 3rd story. Check out her website!
Story 2 is told by Grace about the first time she met her own dude of the internet form a message board. Don’t we know by now that that’s a bad idea?
Finally, a gentleman friend tells the story of his most embarrassing first date. He prefers to remain anonymous.

This story comes from your host, Casey Arnold. I did have a cold when I recorded this episode, but really my voice in the intro sure sounds a lot worse than the rest of the episode, but I hope it’s not too distracting!
9 years ago I made a friend at a bar called The Old Saloon. I was a regular there for only about 4 months when it closed its doors and I lost touch with him. I chose this picture of the bar because it accurately describes the majority of my recollections of it. Blurry. Dark. Hard to remember. I took it in August 2005.
I was reminded of that friend, “Karl”, last week when I was sorting through some of my old journal entries. I decided to look him up on a whim and even though I only had a first name, “Karl” ended up being easier to track down than I thought he would be. But was I prepared for what I found?
Names in this story have been changed. I will be sure to record any updates to this story as they come along. Now that I’m keeping my eyes open, the likelihood of me running into Karl and Arthur seems like a pretty real possibility. No guarantees that I’ll be brave enough to say ‘hi’ or anything.
