WWE SummerSlam with FanSided’s Rob Wolkenbrod: Ep. 59

It’s one of my favorite events of the year: WWE’s SummerSlam. To get prepped, I dialed up Rob Wolkenbrod to chat some wrestling. Rob runs the Daily DDT website for FanSided, Time Inc’s division of fan-generated content. We discussed what it’s like to run a site with 30+ contributors, how to stand out in a crowded WWE market, and made our SummerSlam predictions.

Excuse the stuffy nose. I was getting over a cold, but after Finn Balor won the Universal Championship with a separated shoulder at last year’s SummerSlam, I wasn’t taking the episode off.

Check out Rob on Twitter, as well as Daily DDT. And be sure to check out the site for all their wrestling coverage.

Of course, you can always follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat.

Real-life ‘Moana’ KC Gunn: Ep. 58

KC Gunn left “real life” to sail around the world on a catamaran with her husband and two baby daughters. After five years of no jobs, address, or bills, KC talks about life at sea – including how they find food, educate their kids, and the need to make all her “mommy-daddy time” a quickie.

If you want some serious FOMO anytime you’re sitting at work or stuck in traffic, follow KC and her husband Troy on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube. And if you figure out a way to not be jealous of them, teach me how.

Game of Thrones season preview: Ep. 57

Game of Thrones is back – and so is my podcast! After a few weeks away, I came back with a new episode previewing my favorite show on TV. Called my old college buddy Ben – who’s read the books several times and is the biggest fan of the series I know – to talk a bunch of theories and speculation.

Will Jon and Dany accidentally hook up? Will a dragon die? Who’s the greatest GoT fighter of all time? We tackle all the hard-hitting questions. After the episode, make sure to follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat. I’m sure I’ll be tweeting about the season premiere as it happens. Winter is here!

NBC Spartan’s MJ Acosta: Ep. 56

NBC’s Spartan Team Ultimate Challenge is back for Season 2, and so is host MJ Acosta. She shares how she got the gig and how it fits with her TWO sports anchor day jobs…in two languages! Plus more talk on her career path (including time as a Miami Dolphins cheerleader) and MJ is nice enough to indulge Mike’s obsession with Apolo Ohno.

Check out NBC’s Spartan page for more info on the show and keep up with MJ on Twitter and Instagram. Of course you can always follow me on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and Snapchat.
