Hi, I am Clayton Hansler. I have been working in TV for 15 years (but do not tell anyone, it ages me). This podcast is simply me chatting and laughing with so many of the people that I met along the way and then recording it (generally they know). The guests are usually people way more popular than me and their stories are pretty darn cool. Do not forget your earmuffs, the podcast is not always PG. I screw up a lot, say the wrong thing, sometimes I misquote people and do not always relate every small detail of every event. It is not on purpose, but it happens. Feel free to yell at me over the internet when I do, just avoid doing it at the grocery store. I hope this all gives you a reason to laugh too.
