For those of you watching or listening to this episode between May 23rd and June 30th, 2016 you’ll want to pay attention during the entire episode. This is especially the case if you are looking to get your hands on any of the fezzes that Jason is selling at Fez-o-rama.com or if you’re going to Phoenix Comicon 2016 – he does something very special!
When it comes to hats the fez is a unique and interesting piece of headwear. Jason Rodgers is the guest in this episode and Jason has been making fezzes for 11 years and has been running Fez-o-rama.com as a full-time business for the past 3 years. In this episode we discuss the origins of the fez, how Jason started on producing fezzes as a business and how you should take care of your fez! Jason goes into great detail about his creative process and everything he has to keep in mind as he designs each and every fez. We also talk about a country you definitely shouldn’t wear a fez, secret societies, Muppets, artichokes, my distaste for brussel sprouts, and Disney cartoons. We go into tangents where we cover The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the scarab fly, blood orange juice, goat eyeballs, skulls, cephalopods, and tea.
The following pictures below were shared in the order we discussed during the livestream:
