Episode 028: Dan Tortora - On Transforming Sports Media

May 3, 2017

The transformation of traditional radio broadcast is most evident in sports. With a growing number of people looking for niche shows, ease of entry and access to equipment makes the barrier to entry low. And, you can be your own boss and build an audience quite effectively on your own.

 

Enter Dan Tortora, the new wave of sports radio. Dan is the host of his show Wake Up Call DT, President of Tortora Broadcast Media, and a former sportscaster for ESPN Radio on The Score 1260. His love has always been communications and we explore that on the show. 

 

Dan brings an authentic tone to his radio show which looks to find the bridge where sports meet life. We delve into Dan's passion and interests in communication and sports. Highlighting topics from the past, present and future states of podcasts and other medias.

Episode 025: Jared Firestone - Sacrifice

April 18, 2017

Jared Firestone,@jfireskeleton, is an ex-collegiate track athlete attempting to break into the ranks of the U.S. Skeleton and Bobsled teams.  He recently just returned from the U.S. Nationals and is currently preparing for training sessions with the Elite Development Group in Latvia and Norway.

 

Jared ran track at Tulane and after college, he wasn't willing to give up on his athletic dreams. After watching skeleton one T.V. one day, he took a leap of faith to jump-start his career. 

 

As with many of our guests, Jared has had to show extreme determination, risk, and sacrifice to make the impossible - possible. He has had to forgo his law career and has had difficulty finding a stable job that will support him while he trains. And beyond the potential for failure, skeleton is a dangerous sport. To Jared, the risk is worth the reward.

 

This episode explores the psyche of a strong-willed and determined young man not willing to accept mediocrity. We also talk skeleton training techniques, the potential of athletes as influencers in the 21st century, and intangibles of success. 

 

Looking for another show about athletics? Our conversation with Wes Byrum – Life After Sports, explores difficulties athletes have when they are finished.

Episode 021: Tatum Skipper - How to be a Boss Ass Bitch and Travel the World

March 14, 2017

Tatum Skipper @bonvoyage_bitches is a travel blogger known for her unique and sassy writing style that utilizes offensive language, brutal honesty, and a perspective opposing what most in her industry blog about. This is why she is crushing it.

 
Hailing from Atlanta, Ga. She has won a trip to the French Alps, sky dove in Dubai, lived lavishly through Europe and just recently started building out her RV. She's been queened as a "Professional Partier" and shows people that you can travel the world however you want. 
 
There is something uniquely refreshing about someone willing to forgo the facade of perfection while traveling to bring you the no bullshit version. Let's face it, no trip on the road goes as planned. So Tatum is building her BonVoyage Bitches brand through honesty and leaving bad reviews (just kidding - but she will blog about it). 

 
This episode becomes a montage on how to be different in the travel world. We discover how she uses blogging groups and optimization to grow her following and her biggest trick (Hint Hint: Pinterest). What a wild adventure this really was. 
 
 
You can find Tatum's blog at bonvoyagebitches.com where she writes about places that don't suck and has a segment we love called The Confessional; where you can read about and share crazy, embarrassing, disgusting and just down right dirty horror stories that have happened while traveling.
 
Travel junkie or just plain frugal? One of our most popular episodes was with Kevin Wong - The Invincible Budget - in which he provides tips and tricks on traveling the world for $25/day.

Episode 019: Darryll Fish - The Power of Awareness

March 1, 2017

Darryll Fish aka DFish (@darryllfish) is a 31-year-old professional poker player known not only for his skills at the tables but his shrewd social awareness and community building. He spends his time traveling the world playing both tournaments and cash games.

 

Some of his career highlights include a WSOP Circuit victory in Palm Beach Florida, 2nd place at WPT Montreal, and 3rdplace in the 2013 WSOP $5,000 bracelet event. He is sponsored by Seminole Hard Rock and has recently found himself doing commentary for live stream play-by-play.  

 

His experience playing a game that focuses on the emotions and nuances of his opponents has opened up awareness in other areas of his life (more on this in the show).  Darryll can elegantly connect and engage people from different walks of life inconsequential conversation.

 

This episode becomes a deeply meaningful conversation that explores the ego (such as Darryll’s poker ego) and different forms of social connection. We do a lot of critical analysis on the generational divide between millennials and their parents while discussing those different mindsets and searching through solutions to work out the differences. 

 

Highlights from this episode include Darryll’s recent poker trip to Australia, resolving deep-rooted pain from childhood, and some tricks for setting intentions. 

 

You can see one of Darryll’s most important poker hands at his 2nd place WPT Montreal finish here.

 

This is our second episode featuring a professional poker player and there were some interesting similarities and differences between the conversation with Adam Levy and Darryl.

Episode 016: Storm McGowan - Acid, Salt, Fat and the Chef Collab

February 14, 2017

Michael McGowan a.k.a. Storm. is a young entrepreneur and classically trained chef in the culinary capital of New York City.

Storm graduated top of his class at one of the top culinary schools in New York. He has worked at famed Michelin star restaurants, is a co-founder of @gophercase, and has his own baking company with his fiance Bake Shop 314. All by the ripe age of 27 years old.

This is a very special episode to us as we tried something a little bit different to share with you guys.

We joined up with Storm and his fiance to each create an elaborate dish together one evening, and then met in the studio the next day to talk about the meals, everything from the food prep to the taste, techniques, and cooking mindset.

Besides the meals, we also talk about the highly competitive and cutthroat world that is food in NYC. Storm answers all the questions about sourcing great produce and teaches us some tricks for the gourmet kitchen. There is no shortage of nutrition talk for those millennials working on their diet. 

Get your knives ready (but keep them tucked in while on the bus). You're about to take a culinary journey.

Episode 012: Troy Wiggins - Reggae and Wise Words

December 27, 2016

Music is Emotional. And musical creation elicits emotional responses. But what is the inspiration behind a song? And what about its lyrics? Cue Troy Wiggins.

Troy is the Drummer from Reggae band - Roots of a Rebellion (R.O.A.R.), based out of Nashville, TN. A grassroots band with 6 members, Roots of a Rebellion just played at Bonnaroo Music Festival and released their second album, A Brother's Instinct. Their music can be found on every major platform and their reach extends from America to Europe and the Caribbean.

A thoughtful speaker and songwriter (despite being the drummer), Troy shares an insightful conversation with us about his band’s inception and we were blown away to learn how well they function together behind the scenes. Besides great topics such as augmented reality at music festivals and dread culture, Troy shares some personal moments with his band about a song he wrote for his father.

You can connect with Troy on Instagram @treece_wiggs and on Facebook at Troy Wiggins. You can find the band @rootsofarebellion on Instagram, Facebook, and Youtube.
