Howdy, I’m Clayton Hansler. I’ve been working in film, television and sports for 15 years now - but you probably know me as either being that annoying AHL guy or the dude that created a soccer documentary series. I've befriended some of the most talented, smart, creative and funny people along the way and this podcast is a conversation between myself many of them... or some people that I'm meeting for the first time. The guests are usually people way more popular than me and their stories are pretty darn awesome. So I invite you to join in on the conversation for an hour each week, and don’t forget your earmuffs (the podcast isn’t always PG).
