Fantastic first episode
Mike’s interviewing skills come through in this podcast - great preparation, and letting the guest talk without interruption. Conversational, and I learned a lot about his first guest (PJ Fleck) during their discussion. If they’re all going to be like this it will become one of my top can’t miss podcasts! Great debut.
I’ve been following Mike since his time at ESPN. Always been a fan but it wasn’t until I heard him on local Chicago radio that I have been wishing to hear him in a longer format. I was so exciting and the first episode did not disappoint! Can’t wait to hear more.
