What the HELL Were You Thinking takes you on a tour of cultural curiosities and historical oddities over the past fifty years of politics, pop culture and consumer society. From the deep cultural impact of Colonel Sanders on Japanese Christmas, to the time Garth Brooks lost his mind and decided to be Chris Gaines, to McGruff the Crime Dog. Host Dave Bledsoe and his possibly imaginary Producer Gavin St James take you on a walk through the history that made modern society so damn infuriating. It’s not Generation X navel gazing (ok there might be a LITTLE of that) but also real history about real things that really happened, and how that history impacts us today. (Hint: Everything is Ronald Reagan’s fault!) So check us out every Monday when we answer the simple question of what the hell people in the past were thinking.
Host, Executive Producer, Head Writer
Dave is the dulcet voice of the show, a problem drinker, and very bad boss.
Gavin St. James
Senior Producer, Whipping Boy
Producer Gavin is the long-suffering heart of the show, the humanity that redeems this soulless calamity from the depths of despair.
The Little People Who Make Things Happen
Everyone needs minions. These are ours.
Exec Editor, Sr Producer, Script Conslt, Voice of Sanity
Kimberly is our hired gun when things go off the rails. This is her expression whenever we have to bring her in. This is the only photo she’ll let us use. It’s like 18 years old.
