It's probably because of a non-conformist streak in me, but I've never liked traditional neckties. In fact I never wanted to wear any ties until I got my first bolo tie, which was sufficiently different from everyone else and easy enough to put on that I decided I could wear bolo ties. I've built a collection of about a dozen of these and they always get positive comments, especially the ones made from recycled circuit boards. Recently I've expanded my horizons to include bowties, which have a more formal appearance and the added nerd factor of being difficult to tie for most people. In this episode I talk about my ties.

I did not know what a the name of a Bolo was.
Who is the guy modelling the ties, because he looks nothing like Jon Kulp in my head.

Ken, I know I don't sound so bald-headed on the radio. People are always surprised by this when we meet F2F.
