Y'all Need This Podcast
Summary: Featuring the founder of Texas Humor, Jay B Sauceda and the team behind the content, Y'all Need This Podcast is the show that debates and discusses what it means to be Texan. New episodes published every Tuesday and Friday.
How long do you have to live in Texas to be considered a Texan? As y’all already know we have a lot of pride around these parts. So how long does it really take to get yourself inducted into the cool kids club of America? We came up with a list of criteria we thought should be required for anyone to pass the Texan test.
We’re back with our 17th episode, and it’s an important one. It might seem crazy that Texas would invade another state, but if we truly want to be the largest state in the United States, we might have to resort to that. Today, we debate the invasion strategy.
As it turns out we've all been told a lot of lies as children and as Texans. On today's episode, we dug in to some of the lies our parents told us and the things we thought were illegal in Texas, but aren't.
Processing the news about Whataburger's sale has been intense. Especially for us on the Texas Humor team since EVERYONE messaged us about it on pretty much every single social media channel. Today, we discussed the news and gave our take on what it might mean for the iconic brand.
I'm baffled. Yes, baffled as to why people actually eat Jack In the Box tacos. It's never made any sense to me at all. As it turns out, I'm in the minority on that though. Almost the entire Texas Humor team is obsessed with them.On today's episode, we have a spirited debate on their quality and whether I should try them or not.The Wall Street Journal article on the tacos can be read here: https://www.wsj.com/articles/americans-eat-554-million-jack-in-the-box-tacos-a-year-and-no-one-knows-why-1483465285
We've had a lot of conversations about what the perfect Taco looked like, but none of us have ever agreed. Between that and all the Taco Talk that our friend Rich O'Toole does, we thought it would be a good topic for an episode.
This week, Twitter has been abuzz with a debate over which state has the best "Mount Rushmore of Musicians", if Mount Rushmores of Musicians were a thing. New Jersey thinks they're supreme. We naturally don't. We brought in a fella from New Jersey who agreed with us to lay down the law.
It has recently come to our attention in the Texas Humor office that our fearless leader, Jay B Sauceda, has never eaten at In-N-Out. Every Texan knows that you have to pick a lane when it comes to your go-to burger & fries so this week we decided to take y’all to the drive thru lane at In-N-Out to settle this once and for all. Hear about the good, the bad, the ugly, and a small emergency detour we made on the way back to the office.
Traffic y’all, amirite? This episode we decided to discuss potentially the worst part of our great state: its highways. Sometimes it literally seems like the construction on i35 has being going on since before Willie Nelson was born. But which city really has it the worst? We’ll tell y'all how we ranked the roads and give you some tricks for getting back and forth without hearing “are we there yet?!” on repeat from the back seat.Check out Silo Road's album here: https://geo.itunes.apple.com/us/album/signal-hill/1431555276?mt=1&app=musicThe crazy Buc-ee's trip: https://www.impulsivetravelerguy.com/buc-ee-mania-hitting-up-every-buc-ees-in-texas/2:30 Texas Bullet Train7:15 UberTexas8:00 John’s an Uber Virgin11:16 Visiting every Buc-ee’s17:00 Snacks for traveling22:00 Dad GPS Powers26:00 John can’t say New Braunfels29:50 We crown the worst traffic in Texas
We decided to play a game of good ole fashioned "Would Y'all Rather" for our first Friday episode. Painstakingly hard "this vs. that" questions that no Texan should ever have to encounter out in the wild.But, if you do, our team tackled a few for ya. Hear what we decided when faced with a colony of scorpions vs. a nope noodle (snake) in our bed or drinking sweaty beer from Willie's bandana vs. George's boot, and neither isn't an answer this round, y'all. And for reference sake, this is the photo of Kid Rock we were referring to: https://images.app.goo.gl/5GU5VvkvSfZ2xdBF7
We wanted to debate whether or not Austin is a Texan city, but we realized that we needed to understand what it meant to be Texan in the first place. On today’s episode we settled the debate once and for all. Or at least for this week. Since Austin is changing so fast, we’ll probably need to debate it again soon.For reference, the Dallas Morning News article that we dig in to on the air can be found here. It’s great: https://www.dallasnews.com/opinion/opinion/2011/03/01/voices-what-it-means-to-be-texan
We decided to dive in to Texan foods a bit further this week since I'm trying to figure out what dishes are uniquely Texan and which foods we like just because they're tasty. I also have a sneaking suspicion that Buc-ee's is part of a conspiracy. Plus Julio's Chips needs to hire a new engineer.With all of the Game of Thrones attention this week, we also thought it was important to at least discuss the idea of it taking place in Texas.Also, if you dig the song at the end of the show, make sure to give the band, Silo Road, a listen. Hear that album here: https://geo.itunes.apple.com/us/album/signal-hill/1431555276?mt=1&app=music
On today’s episode we dive deep in to the group of people known as Sneakerheads. Surprisingly, the digital gathering place of sneaker collecting is based right here in Texas. The founder of that site, NiceKicks.com, Matt Halfhill joins us in the studio to talk about Texas, sneakers, and why he picked the hill country over Canada or Fresno. We also hear from y’all about what types of shoes you wear regularly.And the shoes we reference in the show are here.

We heard from A LOT of folks who wanted to tell us their late night Whataburger order, which led us to talk vegetarian BBQ. Should it be a thing? Is Game of Thrones worth watching? What part of the state is most survivable during a zombie apocalypse. And is George Strait being influenced by Post Malone? We covered those and more topics with the Texas Humor team this week.
On today's episode we tackle stereotypes. Which are accurate and which ain't?We also rolled out our newest segment, BBQ&A, during which we answer questions submitted by the followers of Texas Humor.We talk Chili, celebrity Parents, what to take when traveling outside of Texas, bro country, and train etiquette.
