How did we meet?

Andrew and Chris met in high school after they partnered up for a research project where they made up over half of the results. They got 100. From then on they were inseparable. 2 years later they met Alex at running camp. The trio hit it off immediately, consistently reaching a level of humor never before seen by 16 year olds. They stayed in touch until college, where the idea for the podcast really took off. As they were about to graduate, they met their future producer Todd, a friendly but mysterious wanderer just looking for a stable gig. The guys promised him riches and fame, and a few months later I Need A Hobby was born.


Alex is a recent college grad from East Haddam, CT who spends the 9-5 desperately pleading for Amazon affiliate sales and occasionally working at his real job. His main hobbies include listening to lesser podcasts, trying out new hobbies, and getting 5 star reviews.


Chris is a recent college grad from Framingham, MA who spends his 9-5 as a business man working for corporate America. He spent his college days active in a bunch of extracurricular activities and attempting to fit in the party scene but is still looking for the perfect way to spend the 5-9. Some of his biggest activities are running, playing guitar, watching bad reality television, and looking for the next big challenge to take on.


Andrew spends his 9-5 as a graduate student in Computer Science from Framingham, MA. He hopes to one day be on the television show Survivor. In his 5-9 he enjoys running, instant photography, watching movies, and trying out new activities with his co-hosts.


Although camera-shy and soft-spoken, Todd is a powerhouse writer, director, and producer of the show. Proud Scientologist and father.
