11/24/14 (transcript may appear different than audio)  

While the hipsters are at it again, tying to be counter culture and not following the mainstream. This time it’s flip phones that they’re using again. According to CNN, young hipsters, celebrities and even NFL players are using flip phones again as a way to make their lives a little simpler and not be connected to technology 24/7. In a world where we’re all connected to tech all the time, on the go, maybe the hipsters are right about this. However, don’t look for me to wear skinny jeans anytime soon, I’m not gonna go straight hipster anytime soon. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
