As his 350,000+ followers know, Ricky Cobb has an unparalleled talent for unearthing ridiculous vintage sports and toy photos and plastering them with hilarious captions. During our discussion, Ricky (whose day job is teaching sociology at Moraine Valley Community College in Illinois) and I talked about how he got started, how he grew his hobby into a business and, of course, the enduring power of big bushy mustaches and sequined short shorts.

Thanks as always for listening!
