I have met some great people over the years as I’ve traveled through the Venn diagram of life, and Sal Flores is one of them. He and I have become good friends and frankly, I don’t know why I didn’t have him on the show sooner.
I had the honor and privilege to talk about horror movies, and entertainment in general, with award-winning journalist, film/TV critic, and horror fanatic Chauncey K. Robinson – the Twisted Girl Next Door.
I used to host the only sports talk radio show on all of Armed Forces Radio. The format included two “panelists” and yours truly. retired Air Force sergeant Pat Malone became a regular and more of a co-host than a panelist, and he is one of my best friends to this day.
When I started the Get the Knaak podcast my good friend and old Navy buddy, and one-time podcaster himself, Chris Ingalls and I resolved that Chris should join me on the show once a month to discuss all things pop culture – movies, books, music, and TV.
It’s a rare thing to get the opportunity to tell a mentor “thank you.” I got that chance when my old radio boss, former Air Force disc jockey Jim Mason-Foley, joined me on an episode of the Get the Knaak podcast.
Grammy Award-winning recording artist Michael Wansley (TeeWanz) of Thrift Shop fame joined me for some great conversation.
We finally had to do it. My good friend and old Navy buddy Chris Ingalls and I discussed the Joe Rogan, Neil Young, Spotify controversy, the 2022 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees, and much more.
A couple of weeks ago I had a cancellation and I decided to fly solo on my weekly podcast. I spent the better part of an hour scrolling the silliness of my Facebook feed.
People are put in your path for a reason and everything happens for a reason – trite and cliche I know, but in this particular case, both things are true. Eighteen years ago I met a young videographer who just happened to be an injured college football player. He took an internship with me and what has followed is one of those lifelong friendships that bridges gaps in communication only such friendships can. He has gone on to become a successful producer in the comedy world and I couldn’t be more proud of my friend and former colleague. Please, if you will, listen as Carlos Koustas and I bridge one such communication gap.
My oldest son and digital multimedia sports journalist Will Turner joins me on this episode of the Get the Knaak podcast. Listen in as we chat about the crazy non-stop world of sports news, the disparity between men’s and women’s coverage, great voices in broadcasting, and much more. There are now six ways to listen to the Get the Knaak podcast: Audible, Amazon, SoundCloud, Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google Play!
