I want people to find my podcast humorous, informative, and most important fun. To provide a short escape for people to check out of their busy life. With thoughts in my mind I hope that people stay in their car a little longer, get a few more minutes of working out or delay taking a lunch break from work to hear my next thought or idea.

Great Podcast

Mike has had some high quality guests with very diverse backgrounds. The common denominator between all of his guests is that they all represent excellence in their respective field. Mike has a real knack for guiding the conversations and really diving below the surface level to get to know what makes each guest tick and he helps to tell the story of what got them to where they are today. I listen to a lot of different podcasts and this one has definitely made it into my regular rotation. Very entertaining!

Michael Farris is a Natural

Great show! Michael’s guests are interesting and he does a terrific job at interviewing. Also love the boxing episodes ( it is not a boxing only podcast, but he loves the sport and has some amazing guests) and we need as many people as we can get to keep that great sport alive.
