What Does It Mean to Be an Obcean? A New Podcast for OB Answers the Question

Corey Bruins has taken it upon himself to start a new podcast about Ocean Beach, and it’s called “The Obcean.”

It seems only fitting to kick off the first episode of the OBcean podcast with thoughts from OBceans about what it means to be an OBcean.

We hear stories from Mike James, Frank Gormlie, and others about how this identifying label of ‘OBcean’ inherited it’s meaning over the past 60 years.

Frank lives in Lemon Grove right?

That’s right, after living most of my life in OB and Pt Loma, I moved east. And Mike James lives in La Mesa, Dennis Doyle in University City. Hell, Corey Bruins doesn’t live in OB-proper!

Mike, not sure if your comment was meant to try and discredit frank. If it wasn’t, I don’t see what else you could have possibly been trying to accomplish. Regardless, a lot of people have ties/interest/pride in communities that they used to call home but no longer do. I bet Frank puts more effort into helping the OB community in one week than you ever will, even if you live the rest of your life in OB.

Don’t always or even usually agree with you, Frank. But I sure appreciate your passion for OB.
