We are proud to introduce the The Awkward Family Podcast, a heartfelt and humorous look at the cringeworthy side of family. AFP co-founder, Mike Bender and his wife, journalist SuChin Pak, interview the real people behind the most talked about awkward photos while exploring those universal uncomfortable family moments we all experience.

In their first episode, Mike and SuChin explore the theme of marriage by talking with Mike’s parents, who have just passed a significant milestone in their own marriage and uncovering the mystery behind one of the most iconic photos on the website called, “Mask Boy.”

“A hot summer backyard photo.  Why my dad is shirtless, I don’t know.  Why by sister has curlers, I don’t know.  Why am I cross-eyed?  It was before the operation.”

My Friend The Druid - Friends

“I was having my senior photos taken and decided that I wanted something different than everyone else. Something that was fun and wasn’t so cookie-cutter. My friend, who was killing some time with me, got a Druid’s cloak from the trunk of my car, (Who didn’t have one of those in their car? It was the 90’s after all), and lurked around in the background.
I dunno, I kind of like it.”

“Uncle Ben thought he would exude confidence on his first day of work doing sales in a call center. He had owned the same car since high school and thought it was really cool and drove it everywhere until it eventually broke down. His fancy city people clothes were purchased at a local thrift shop for the interview and for his first day of work. He wanted to appear as a true sales professional. How he got the job, we may never know!”
