Best Interviews with Locals: Cincy Shirts Podcast

Some of the most popular podcast titles today are the ones centered around interviews, like Marc Maron’s WTF or Dax Shepard’s Armchair Expert. If you want deep-dive chats with a Cincinnati focus, though, you can’t do much better than the Cincy Shirts Podcast, an extension of the popular local business that makes and sells a variety of unique Cincinnati-centric T-shirts. Hosted by Cincy Shirts co-founder Josh Sneed (who’s also a successful comedian) and Director of Content P.F. Wilson (a CityBeat contributor), the podcast has featured an impressive range of Cincinnatians since debuting in 2018. Sitting down for in-depth conversations on the podcast have been everyone from sports heroes like Johnny Bench and Tony Pike to broadcasters Bob Herzog and Jim Scott, as well as entrepreneurs like Josh Heuser and Molly Wellmann and the founders of local businesses like Gorilla Glue, Taste of Belgium and Tom & Chee. But anyone with a local connection is fair game — the show has also featured cool chats with less expected guests like WWE announcer Greg Hamilton and comedian Alex Leeds, whose “Dumb Celebrity Drawings” project finds him sending his drawings of various (often weird) subjects to completely unrelated celebrities who autograph them and send them back.
