This week's podcast is a real get for me. Due to knowing the "right people" (thanks to Scott Adams), I was able to snag a sit with the radio legend, Spike O'Neill. Spike has been on the radio/TV/internet for 28+ years and he's amazing. Quick witted, kind, insane, a tad weird, and more than a little bit dirty, Spike was a joy. It's my hope I can spend more time with him in the near future, let alone actually convince him to have his own podcast, which HE SHOULD DO. He's a great guest and a real dude. I don't know if podcasts get better than this one. Talk about tangents.....
