    INTERVIEW: Dana Buckler from The Dana Buckler Show

    Ep. 161 - Jason and Dan sit down with Dana Buckler who has 'exploded' the independent podcast scene in the last few weeks as he has recently sat down with the one and only John Travolta for one of the most amazing interviews ever recorded with the superstar! Truly, it's one for the books!  So, we knew we had to ask Dana to return to TPD (for a record 3rd appearance on the show)!  We talk the evolution from "How is This Movie" to "The Dana Buckler Show", artwork, co-hosts and of course, talking to John Travolta!  Dana is a great interviewer, storyteller and his journey (so far) is truly what independent podcasting dreams are made of!  Subscribe now, if you haven't already!

Best Podcast Guide out there!

It's easy to be overwhelmed when looking for a podcast you might enjoy. There are so many choices. This podcast does all the work for you! The host has great integrity, in only recommending shows he truly believes in. I have found many great shows thanks to this podcast. Couldn't recommend it more! Give a listen

Here Kittie, Kittie, Kittie

I got a handler named Kittie. Please don’t do what the left does and control. The reason Trump is succeeding is because people feel they have a voice. Let people talk no matter what they say, policy will always win. I understand the election is coming up, but you understand why he will be elected again. It is because Trump lets people talk. 100% on your side. So knock it off. If I can catch you, the left can.

Independent and informative

The host has an engaging voice and personality. He puts his all into this podcast, and the more candid he gets about his process and challenges, the more I appreciate what he does.
