Florida Men: The Podcast – Season 2 Trailer


Tales from the shady side of the Sunshine State. Every week we share stories about America’s most prolific criminal: Florida Man.

Part true crime, part comedy, all weird. This show is about the kind of shtuff that only happens in the state where everybody is crazy from the heat. 

Based in Fort Myers, Florida, Joel and Phil are longtime residents of Florida, and have personally encountered many a Florida Man.


Originally from Michigan, Joel has been a Florida Man since 1994. He does all the editing for the podcast and most of the social media posts. He also writes about himself in the third person.


Phil grew up in Mississippi, and arrived in Florida in 2012. He is the musician,  recording gear expert, and engineer for the show. He is totally not afraid of clowns.
