Gabe & I go way back, but most people don't know that. He's one of the FM folks that I truly vibe with. I sat down with the B96 morning star and we talked about his love for Chicago, tension between the Black and Spanish Diaspora and how he got to the top of the B96 ladder. Oh and SOFTBALL...

I've known Adam a LONG time and I'm really impressed by him. We had a great conversation about journalism and teaching journalism. You'll see that our passion lies in both. I also wanted to pick Adam's brain about covering college sports, since I don't have a ton of experience doing that.

Getting to sit down with the Score's Premier sound man was a treat. It's the longest episode of the podcast and for good reason.

12/26/2018

This was so fun. I recorded with Jake for the radio show, but there was too much content to fit into the structure of the show, so this is like a bonus episode of the podcast. We talk about why he loved playing Peter B Parker in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse, BUT it's Jake so we also talked about the Bears.
