Favorite Episodes

When we started exploring the idea of an episode that looked back at the first year of Camp Codger, it was almost natural that we would each have our own favorite episodes. Randy thoroughly enjoyed our “Camp Granny” episode with author Sharon Lovejoy while Richard appreciated the insights on retirement offered by LA Times columnist Steve Lopez. Ever the geek, Gary preferred the more educational, technology-based episodes about the Metaverse and ChatGPT.

We all agreed that it was fun to take a stroll down memory lane occasionally. We look back at the music, toys, and major events in our formative years.

    Congrats on getting a year of Camp Codger in the can. One suggestion: on the email reminding me that a new episode is available, you say the old codgers are at it again. Do you need the modifier “old”? Seems redundant!
    Keep rolling, guys.

    It is refreshing to listen to you 3 guys. The show stimulates me to reflect on my personal memories from the past!
