    Episode #16 — Brian Wesbury, Chief Economist at First Trust

    Episode #16 — Brian Wesbury, Chief Economist at First Trust

    Economists make easy targets. Their work is an inexact science that frequently produces misguided calls, prompting sneers and ridicule from the investing class. Enter Brian Wesbury, an economist who has often proved the skeptics wrong. He’s been rewarded with “top forecasting” awards while going against the grain from many of his colleagues. Hear of Brian’s background, his opinion on the politics of economics, as well as his calls for an upcoming recession.

    Episode #15 — Kevin Slaten, Sports Media Personality

    Episode #15 — Kevin Slaten, Sports Media Personality

    Loudmouth, antagonistic, arrogant. And those are some of the nicer things said about Kevin Slaten! King Kevin, as his legions of fans call him, has been stirring it up on St. Louis airwaves for more than 30 years. This enlightening and provocative interview digs into, among many subjects, Kevin’s long running feud with Tony LaRussa, his role in the Joe Paterno scandal that made national news, and his well-publicized battles with fans and media alike.

    Episode #14 — 1984: From Hell to Heaven

    Episode #14 — 1984: From Hell to Heaven

    1984. It’s more than the name of a famous book or rock album. For Dave Simons, 1984 marks a compelling story that close friends have suggested that he share. And he does so for the first time in this week’s Quick Hit. Get ready. You’re about to hear a story of homelessness, alcohol abuse, violence, panic attacks, and despair. But ultimately this is a story of redemption and God’s unfailing love.

    Episode #13 — Greg Holder, Lead Pastor at The Crossing Church

    Episode #13 — Greg Holder, Lead Pastor at The Crossing Church

    Eight people gather in a St. Louis home in 1989 to talk about doing church a little differently. Decades later thousands call this church home, including thousands more who watch online around the world. How does that even happen? Dave introduces us to the man behind much of the church’s growth and its impact in underserved areas across the globe. Just don’t credit him for the church’s impact. He will point to the heavens and give credit where it’s due.

    Episode #12 — Military Veterans Jay Humphrey and Chad West

    Episode #12 — Military Veterans Jay Humphrey and Chad West

    Imagine telling your wife that there’s a good chance you’ll be coming home in a body bag. That was “the talk” that Jay Humphrey and Chad West had with their wives as they headed to places like Afghanistan and Iraq. In this Simons Simons episode, the military veterans discuss everything from what it’s like to survive boot camp, to the "band of brothers” mindset, to politics and wokeism in the military.

    Episode #11 — Dave’s own mother! Karen Hall Simons Finkelston Gummersbach

    Episode #11 — Dave’s own mother! Karen Hall Simons Finkelston Gummersbach

    ”I love you.” Three words that Dave’s mom has never spoken in her 80 years. Not to her three kids. Not to her three husbands. In a compelling, and at times painful, conversation, Dave has a heart-to-heart talk with his own mother about a number of life events that shaped her. A sexual assault that produced a child (and that would be Dave himself), a 45-year affliction with rheumatoid arthritis, losing a teenage sister in a train/car collision, a lack of religious...

Listened to the second podcast with Frank O Pinion. Great interview and good to hear Frank’s voice. Listened to Frank from the very first day on the St. Louis airwaves until the very last. Enjoyed the interaction of you two and now going back to listen to your first podcast.
