We go way back

I feel like I know the guests, Bobby and Jason Ball because the conversations are real, genuine and so interesting. I feel like I’m in the room with them and we’re just hanging out talking like old friends... like we go way back. I find it’s sometimes easy to relate to the experiences shared. It’s really cool hearing personal stories. It’s a reminder that no matter what we do for a living or what’s going on in life, we’re all just people, trying to live and hopefully spreading some positive energy!

Love this podcast!

Jason has that rare quality of being authoritative...yet so incredibly relatable. He has the wisdom of decades of experience in the tv newsroom, but don’t expect to hear some old school newsy curmudgeon. Jason brings a warm, unexpected charm and a friendly curiosity to his podcast. It is apparent how much the guests respect him...and truly like him. He and Bobby create a vibe that feels like you are a fly on the wall...quietly eavesdropping on an interesting conversation within the new’s director’s office. If you ever have wondered, “WHAT are they talking about in there?”....this podcast is for you!

Henry DiCarlo Great.

With a preface to these pods done pre Dec. 27, 2018. That Chris Burrous was still with us. It is hard knowing that we will not hear him with you interviewing him and NOT WRITING HIM UP after a Weekend shift.
That said, listening to Henry and you, I now see why the dedication to CHOC he and his wife have. During the next Disneyland marathon, he will be there to cover it and host.
I enjoy hearing your different quotes for each on air guest.
I have a question for you Jason Ball:
What quote would you give to somebody who has Epilepsy?
