    Ben Maller: Clippers, Lakers, Dodgers and Life

    Ben Maller: Clippers, Lakers, Dodgers and Life

    I'm fortunate to call Ben Maller a friend. He does overnights on Fox Sports Radio. And while he is a success overnights -- he’s not an overnight success. Ben’s been at this for more than 20 years -- including being a pioneer in the blogging arena. We start off talking about his Clippers and our Dodgers, what the Angels need to do to get Mike Trout and Shohei Otani into the playoffs, we talk LeBron James and the Lakers, but also discuss the losses we’ve suffered in the last 7 months: my wife, and his dad.

    Ted Sobel: Touching Greatness

    Ted Sobel: Touching Greatness

    Ted Sobel is synonymous with LA sports radio, working for KNX, KFWB and KMPC, among others. Ted's covered every major sporting event you can think of, and met all kinds of superstars. He tells great stories in his new book, “Touching Greatness: Tales from the Front Row with Heroes and Legends.” And he tells great stories in this episode! We talk a lot about Kobe Bryant, Ted’s boyhood idol Elgin Baylor, and why Eli Manning and David Tyree tracked him down after their improbable Super Bowl win.

    PJ Butta: The Nightcap

    PJ Butta: The Nightcap

    PJ Butta is an LA hip hop radio icon from the 92.3 The Beat days in the 90’s to now doing afternoons on the legendary KDAY. In addition to his on-air work he teaches broadcasting, runs his own podcast network, and pours The Nightcap weeknights at 8pm Pacific / 11pm Eastern on IG Live playing slow jams in front of the fireplace — using that platform to help people in need. All this fresh off of his 11-day battle with COVID. We discuss his inspiration for The Nightcap, the future of radio/audio, and he ranks his top 3 bourbons.

    Kevin Cuenca: Grindin All My Life

    Kevin Cuenca: Grindin All My Life

    Kevin Cuenca is a former sports reporter turned content creator who’s driving in his own lane. Especially with a show like Cruisin with Kevin. He worked at CBS2/KCAL9 here in LA but as we talk about in this episode some of the content he was creating didn’t sit well with someone in management. We talk about the late Nipsey Hussle, his most painful tattoo, figuring out social media algorithms, and life as a Navy kid with an alcoholic father.

    Chenue Her: Two Months Later

    Chenue Her: Two Months Later

    Chenue Her is a TV news reporter at 11 Alive in Atlanta. We first talked for the podcast back in March but that was a brief conversation centered around the spa shootings in the Atlanta area and the Stop Asian Hate campaign. In this conversation we dive into Chenue’s fight with COVID, growing up in Minnesota, self care as a journalist and son of Hmong immigrants, his meme fame, and his growing sneaker collection.

NurseDeezy ,

Enjoy the Format, Glad your back

I subscribed immediately when I saw you are back. Your vulnerability and humility is refreshing. I missed listening to you and always loved your style. Prayers to you and your daughters. I am sorry for your loss, but by the grace of God it seems like you have found a way to slowly heal and figure it out. One day at a time. There are many out there who are in your corner. I know we are!

Better than ever!

I’m so glad Aron is back! His interview style is thoughtful and personal and I love that we get to learn more about his personal journey as his guests to reveal of theirs. Great work!
