About Before Phones (BP)
It was a time of Great Phonelessness

Granted, it was a bizarre time.

People actually had to talk to each other face to face.

Introducing Dino the phone-eating dinosaur

And there were only three channels on the TV.

As unpleasant as that sounds, somehow it worked (although I have my doubts).

Dino is just trying to understand modern life

But how exactly did people survive (even thrive) before phones?

Here at Before Phones (BP) “Where the Dinosaurs Roam” we explore the latest discoveries about the Pre-Phone era. Our methodologies include interviews with other dinosaurs, the latest archeological finds and a range of other innovative research techniques.

Mysteries We Explore

Nothing to fear, Dino will not harm you (but he may eat your phone)

Here at Before Phones (BP), we are dedicate to …

Trying to understand the cryptic pre-phone era.

Unresolved questions include:

  • How people drove without texting?
  • What is was like to have only 24 photos to a roll?
  • How people (dinosaurs) coped with the boredom?

Our Goal

Dino interviewing Steve the Brontosaurus

The pre-phone era also had its charm (so they say).

Our goal is to understand how society worked without everyone staring at their phone all day (and night).

  • To inform, inspire and educate about the pre-phone era
  • Feature guests from the Before Phone (BP) era
  • Continuously improve our understanding of phonelessness

Dinosaurs never die
Just look around you


Too often today …

We label dinosaurs failures.

But hear me out:

Dinosaurs dominated terrestrial ecosystems for 190 million of the approximately 440 million years life has been present on earth. That’s not bad. Especially when you consider the iPhone is barely over a decade old. 1 decade = 1/10th of a century = 1/1000th of a millennium = an infinitesimal sliver of time = you get me drift.

Dinosaurs in many ways may be the biggest success story in the history of the earth. And don’t count us out just yet. Did you know that bird species outnumber mammals 2 to 1. And that’s right, you guessed it.

Dinosaurs are the ancestors to modern-day birds.

Every kingfisher and nuthatch you see has the heart of a dinosaur.
