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!
A lot of smart people work at Nasdaq, and not just because they recently asked me to come visit their offices.
But they did, and I did, to appear on their weekly Facebook Live show Social Media Geek Out. They’re smart because they realized two things drive more social traffic than any other these days: politics and animals. So here I am, as a bit of a burgeoning animal expert, along with a staff writer from Politico breaking it all down. And, oh yeah, The Amazing Race host Phil Keoghan and BBC animal expert Chris Packham made a late appearance too!
In addition to hosting The Mike Janela Show, I also co-host a weekly pro wrestling podcast with my partner Betsy Struxness. Normally we focus on the company’s most divisive superstar, Roman Reigns. But this week — after WWE made the egregious mistake of allowing a male character decide its historic and first-ever women’s Money in the Bank ladder match — we spent the bulk of our episode talking about much more serious issues: equality for the sexes; our country’s political climate; the drawbacks of capitalism; and even American national identity. All this from a “fake” sport!
