In Episode 121 of You Don’t Know Flack I talk about thrifting — this includes shopping at thrift stores, garage sales, antique malls and pawn shops. Throughout this episode I’ll tell you some of the best things I’ve found at these places along with some of the worst. I also talk a bit about what has replaced them (spoiler: online auctions).

Episode 120 of You Don’t Know Flack is about radio scanners, those little devices that allow you to eavesdrop on all the little conversations floating around us. In this episode I talk about my experiences with scanners and some of the things you can listen to with scanners. I also talk a little bit about how you can now listen to these frequencies using your computer and/or smartphone!

Episode 118 is about a new piece of hardware used to play old video and arcade games — the iCade. Yes, it was designed to work with Apple’s iPad, but did you know it works with Android tablets as well? In this episode of You Don’t Know Flack I give a complete review of the iCade, including a list of several games that are compatible with the iCade including iMAME!
