One of the Best

Probably one of the most topical and thoughtful deeply introspective and historically based. And I love, love, love his use of puns and wordplay in everything from the Spiel to his credits. So much fun to listen to. AND he is a sports junkie, I don’t get that

I don't want to like Mike, but I do.

Not sure if it is the fast talking, glib, free wheeling and virtuoso style of speech that grates at me but Mike seems irritating. What he says however is important, and what he questions people on is equally important. His interviews are often uncanny for the insights they bring and his spiel can range from the gentle reminder to use your brain to a heart stopping thud that everyone needs to be more critical in this time of overdosed communication.

It's great

I rely on Mike to be fact-based, humorous and a sobering liberal voice in today's insanity. Facts and the truth matter and he does a great job promoting those things with style and attitude.
