About Our Podcast

Bravo, you've found it! A place of deadpan humor, sometimes witty and often bizarre. 
Je Ne Sais Quoi tells absurd stories with a literary bent and a nod to art & culture. A Catcher-of-the-Wry sort of Vibe.
Recently, our work was awarded a Platinum Medal, as well as Gold from the "Sundance" of Audio Fiction: The National Audio Theatre Festivals.
Xavier Combe & Jim Hall make up the entire team. It's a Franco-American alliance formed in the 1970s when the two of them were doubles partners in tennis. Today, listening to JNSQ is by design, a lot like playing tennis without the net.  
The French have a saying: "Humor is the last bulwark before despair" (strange, yes, but it sounds better in French). We believe humor is indeed the best medicine, and we prescribe you take a listen once a week.  If you enjoy what you hear, feel free to share with, well, one or two million of your closest friends...
Au revoir, Amigos!
