Nick Massouh and Jessica Lynn Verdi unpack our rapidly changing world while examining generational differences. From Boomers to Zoomers, and the hosts who are in between; no subject is off the table, no words are left on the cutting room floor, and conversations are always funny, poignant, thoughtful, and ridiculous every time. Both Nick and Jess are actors and improvisers in the LA area. Nick is a Gen Xer, and Jessica is a Millennial. They are both trying to come to grips with Gen Z.

Joe Starr is put to the test this week, simply because Jessica finds it hard to trust that anyone truly cares about her. But rest assured, Joe DOES care and you can tell by the way they drop in to the deep subjects, like the era of frosted tip hair styles, evangelism, geeky stuff, and more. You can find Joe doing awesome things over at DnD Beyond a…
 
John Champion of Roddenberry Entertainment joins Jessica this week as her first guest in the series YDKN sans Nick.

Listen, you should know by now what you're getting into when you listen to this podcast, but this week Nick & Jess are particularly speculative.

My how the turns have tabled. There have been new additions to the dictionary, and a millennial was claiming to not know what they were... so FINALLY, Nick got to put Jess to the slang test.

This episode miiiiight be a little annoying for you fine people *not* living in LA, but even though people say that they *don't* judge you by what area code you have.... they definitely do. And it's this author's opinion that Nick is one of the worst of them. In other news, Jess asks Nick about what his favorite YA series was as a kid... and let's …
 
Is it shocking that Nick used to do cold calls selling car warranties "back in the day"? It shouldn't, but still, him finding a way to share this information tangentially after a simple mention of the Mayan calendar is really a thing to behold. To be fair, Jessica is super full of doom and gloom, so thank goodness he's full of funny anecdotes. Jess…
 
Despite being completely disappointed in their new found love of Olivia Rodrigo, Jess and Nick muster the strength to do the rest of the episode.

Coffee and cigars, the main topics of this episode. Nick and Jess learned that they were both Foldger's babies! ie. Both of their parents drank that stuff. Which leads into a deeper conversation about what the coffeehouse experience was like for them as they were growing up. The meat and cigars of the episode, though, is Nick & Jess discussing thei…
 
Not that Nick is resentful or anything, but he just wished that Jessica gave him a better idea of what this week's episode was going to be about. However, he did hope that she would conveniently forget about his promise sharing his "quarterlife crisis" story. She did not. New episodes every Friday. Interested in becoming a Patron? Check us out toda…
 
*FAIR WARNING* Audio quality is not great. Sorry, Nickels. We're working on it, and Jessica's audio is primary culprit. We did enough editing so that it isn't too hard to listen to, but when you hear what we're talking about, you can't say we didn't warn you. This week's episode of "You Don't Know, Nick" really needed rails, but from what we can re…
 
Nickels, never have we had a more passionate version of Nick, and the length of this episode should be proof enough. Not only does Nick want to know everything that Jess thinks about the movie "Dazed and Confused," he also wants to know what she learned about him with regards to the movie and thanks to last week's special guest, Sami. Nick however …
 
*Disclaimer* This episode talks a lot about drugs & alcohol. We do not advocate the use of substances, but we sure as hell can reminisce about them. Well, Nick had an ace up his sleeve, and his name is Sami Nassar, childhood friend of the Massouh family, condo hotel owning entrepeneur, but most importantly one of the OG Buds of '94. Oh, you remembe…
 
Rails? Where we're going, we don't need rails. Both Jess & Nick didn't do their homework, which was to listen to ONE Olivia Rodrigo, so before the episode, they listen to TWO Olivia Rodrigo songs and boy are their opinions. Nick thinks he's Billy Joel. Jess recounts some of her old drug stories. Nick and Jess both learn that there's another niche g…
 
Nick is beginning to suspect that Jess doesn't actually know anything about pop culture, aka the very reason he wanted to do this podcast with her in the first place. Jess doesn't defend herself, but her laughter hides the tears. A random conversation about "where were you during Y2K" leads to a funny similarity between Nick and Jess. The Billboard…
 
If it's true that youth is wasted on the young, then Nick was REALLY wasted when he was young. Jess & Nick share their high school partying history (or lack there of in Jessica's case.) They check in with a Reddit thread that asked people to share their most "boomer" opinion even though they're not a boomer" Nick tries to teach Jess what she does n…
 
*Smol Warning* Jessica yells a lot. Jessica didn't realize that she was yelling THAT much. You can't tell that Jessica is having a fun time and so is Nick, but it's a fun argument. HOWEVER, what is NOT fun is how loud Jessica gets. We lowered the volume, but just be prepared. END PSA -- Listen, if ever you wanted to hear Jessica admit to being wron…
 
Wow... so... the stakes are high for this one. Nick learns that this is the seventh episode of YDKN and he starts getting a little hot around the collar. Can Jess assure him to stay in it for the long-haul? Jess learns just how wrong she has been in previous episodes from Nick's Gen Z niece, Hailey. Batman is talked about... because reasons. And Je…

It's the forth episode... and it's quite possible Nick and Jess know less now then when they started. Jess tests Nick's Hyper Pop band name knowledge against his unique baby name knowledge. Even Kim Jong-Un says that skinny jeans have got to go. And just when you thought they couldn't make any new slang, along comes "Purr." Special thanks to Derek …

In the inaugural episode of the You Don't Know, Nick Podcast, we meet the person you literally don't know, Nick Massouh. He's pretty out of touch with them kids, even as a Xennial.
