You Know The Place

It's a podcast!

Every day, you drive by hundreds of businesses you've never stopped at, shopped at or (sometimes) even noticed. That's where we come in. From reptile markets to running groups, bead stores to bodegas, natatoriums to nude retreats, You Know The Place explores the Idaho stores, shops, clubs, and pubs you always pass by, but never seem to visit.

For better or worse, society puts up a curtain around the process and business of death. This week Joel and LD stop into a business with the hopes of peeking through a bit.

If someone asks if you want to see the "stink room," you reply affirmatively, right? No? Was that just us? Anywho, join us as we head to Caldwell to learn about skunk lures and fireworks!

We're kicking off our second season with a twist as we allow Joel to nominate ALL the vape shops on Overland in Boise. Well, kinda.

Since we started this season at a reptile store, it seems appropriate to end it at a bird shop, right? Shout out to Brian in Boise for the suggestion! Warning: This episode contains some loud squawking and LD's (ugh) bird voice.

Say you're on a road trip and just happen to be craving the following: a hot shower, hashbrowns & gravy, a personalized pocket knife, a bucket of popcorn in a movie theater, a bidet. Well, there's a place for all that.

When's the last time you celebrated the sunset? We drop in on a social club for "those who like watching the sunset, getting together with queerfolk and having a hoot." Because, why not? Champagne toast included.

It's week five and we find ourselves looking for a place and an experience.  #postfloatglow is a real thing, people.

For week four, we turn to the digital world. Just as you can drive by a store or shop, you can scroll by or happen across tons of groups and spaces on the internet. So, what happens when you join one and then actually show up in real life? Listen in.

Lacey Daley / Boise State Public Radio

For our third field trip, we find ourselves at The Beardsmith, a local barber shop that's doing its best to preserve the majesty of the beard.

In our second episode, we pop into a family-owned shop that specializes in clothing and jewelry from India, Pakistan, and Nepal.

Tag along for our first episode when we drop into a local reptile shop to learn about Jesus lizards, tail-less geckos, and why all women are attracted to snakes.
