Josh is a part of a long line of collectors. His family’s love of pop culture stayed with him his whole life and he is now obsessed with all things history and trivia. While his family collected jars and cans for the look and the labels, even from a young age Josh was more interested about what was on the inside. His desire to open and taste these iconic eats has led him to be an expert of nostalgic and historic foods.

Josh feels the only way to truly understand the past is to taste it. He finds it, learns about it and then dives into giving it a try—even if it’s risky. Through family connections and collecting, he has developed a vast network of collectors and ordinary folks around the country who reach out whenever they find an old obscurity that’s potentially edible. Josh currently hosts a podcast where he spreads his knowledge of history, nostalgia and pop culture trivia.
