Jacob and Shawn discuss dyslexia on their podcast.

Our Story

Quality dyslexic banter, where you want it, when you want it. Untied!

Shawn, a professor, and Jacob, a college graduate, talk about their educational experiences through the lens of their dyslexia in this casual podcast. Sometimes they are funny. Many times they laugh at their own jokes. Shawn often tells interesting stories from his life while Jacob asks sarcastic questions. Every podcast has bourbon featured except when Jacob observes Lent. The quality of the podcast improved dramatically when Lucas and Jacob G. joined the group.
