Drew Storen is one of only 6% of athletes who sign a deal to play baseball to make into the “Big Leagues”. As a relief pitcher he has played for the Washington Nationals, Toronto Blue Jays, Seattle Mariners and the Cincinnati Reds.

Currently he is rehabbing successful Tommy John Surgery and hopes to be pitching again in 2019. He sits down with me and talks about how he beat the odds and become one of the 6%. Find out what his best experience to date has been in the majors. Learn what city is his favorite to pitch in, favorite ballpark and what “other” famous athlete was at Stanford the same time as Drew.

An ambitious young man learn about his plans for after his career on the field is over. And with all of my podcasts we then venture off into some other areas of interest. Drew happens to be a big car guy. So of course we talk cars! He enjoys painting, on canvas, not houses!

He also happens to have a fascination with the military. A chance encounter with a baseball fan who lived in his neighborhood while in D.C. fed that interest. The fan turned out to be the legendary Navy pilot Chuck “Heater” Heatley. The F-14 pilot, Top Gun instructor, and photographer was an inspiration for the movie Top Gun. (Check out Heaters book, “Cutting Edge” it came out in 1986 but has amazing shots from his fighter jet.) Drew has even flown an F-16 simulator!

From here we talk memorabilia and his treasured collectibles. And I couldn't resist asking him if he does impressions like his famous dad, sportscaster and former Bob and Tom Show member Mark Patrick.

All in all a fascinating talk with a talented, interesting, and likable young man.

The Bob & Tom Show favorite Pat Godwin joins us this week. Pat began singing and writing songs as a young man growing up in northeastern Pennsylvania. In his 20’s he was performing in and around Philadelphia where he caught the attention of veteran comedian Todd Glass.

Todd found Pat’s songs nice but it was the funny banter between songs that Todd really enjoyed. Enough that he convinced Pat to show up for an open mic at a comedy club to try his hand at stand up. In the crowd that night was the legendary Philly radio God John DeBella. DeBella was so impressed by Pat’s funny songs that he hired him to compose 4 on a daily basis.

Taken straight from the headlines these tunes became a staple on the Morning Zoo at WMMR for nearly 7yrs. We learn how Pat ended up going to The Howard Stern Show where he stayed until around early 2002. We discuss the first time he visited The Bob & Tom Show, let him play us a few tunes, and then things turn a bit serious.

Pat has suffered in the past from situational depression usually following a breakup. These bouts have seen him abusing anxiety medication and alcohol with some not so pretty results. We relive one of those moments following a comedy show in Farmington, New Mexico.

We also discuss life as a single dad to an adopted teenage daughter and a 7yr old son Jimmy, who sometimes goes out on the road and even steps on stage for laughs of his own.

And please stick around for the amazing Keith Richards encounter that Pat decided to save for last. You may laugh, sing along or even tear up a bit with Pat Godwin this week.

Jeff Boggs is a producer, writer, and sometimes actor based in Los Angeles, California.

Jeff started his career with an internship on “Late Night with David Letterman” on NBC. The odds of getting an internship with Dave is slim so Jeff had an interesting way of getting “in the door”.

Once there he took full advantage of the position. Find out about his big break becoming the “Board Guy” leading to a job as the receptionist on the talent floor and then on to the writers floor receptionist. (Many start at the bottom and work their way up. Good life lesson young people.)

Writing proved to be one of Jeff’s greatest talents and the staff of Late Night took notice. Jeff’s first joke to make it on the show was part of the famous Dave’s Top Ten list. His stint with Dave saw him nominated for a Prime-time Emmy and trip to the Emmy’s! His next job was with The Tom Green Show on MTV. This required a move to LA and an ironic skit where Tom “marries” actress Drew Barrymore. However that fell through when Tom and Drew actually started dating.

Jeff went on to Nashville as developer and producer of “Nashville Star”. The show was inspired by American Idol but unlike Idol the contestants had to sing country music. Judges included Blake Shelton, Brett Michaels, Wynonna Judd and more. Jeff has some wonderful stores about his time with these powerful country music stars.

Jeff is currently working on a new project which he is being a bit secretive but we will keep you updated.

When not working Jeff has a love of Karaoke! Learn which songs are his favorites to perform and which song ALWAYS brings down the house. Enjoy the humor, wit and storytelling that comes so easily to Jeff on this weeks episode!

Like most of our Sh*t with Britt shows I never know where they will go. This time it is no different.

I supplied the soup, wine and atmosphere and we started with a “New Years Resolution” theme but quickly veer off. Like many of you losing weight and getting in shape topped the list for Britt, Tiffany and myself. We talk about Weight Watchers, gyms, fasting diets, and plastic surgery.

Then switch to Global Warming (ah the art of conversation) which leads to Tiffany announcing that her sister lives in Alaska. I know what you are thinking, yeah well so what, she lives in a DRY cabin and rides a BIKE everywhere. WOW!

I bring up my favorite book “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz. Buy it, read it, live it! Tiffany also has a great story about letting her oldest son “fail” on a recent trip to Chicago. Sometimes live lessons have to come the hard way and as parents its our jobs to facilitate those lessons.

The rest of my notes from this night are just words. Knitting, shingles, stress, Christmas, mom calls, ballroom dancing, Sam Elliott, Roadhouse, Tom Cruise, Cardi B, Madonna and Bruno Mars. Now I can’t wait to listen and figure out exactly what the heck happened.

Cheers!

Who doesn’t love magic and magicians? My guest this week, Justin Willman is not only a talented magician he is also a stand up comic. A combination that adds up to amazing entertainment.

We learn how a couple of broken arms at the age of 12 put Justin on a path to stardom. With the stage name Justin Kredible, given to him by his mom, Justin honed his early craft at kids birthday parties and entertaining friends.

His love of magic eventually led him to LA and the legendary club the Magic Castle. Although his first visit did not go as planned he did end up doing lots of stage time.

Now he travels the country with his combo show of magic and comedy and will soon bring his talent to TV. Justin has just finished filming 6 episodes of his new show Magic for Humans for Netflix. A show that looks at magic from different facets of being human. Example: Love, guilt, self-expression, etc. I am intrigued and can't wait to watch.

We also learn what it takes to bring a show from an idea to your home.

Magic isn’t his only talent Justin also was the host of the show Cupcake Wars and more on the Food Network. He shares the worst cupcake he ever sampled and some of his favorite flavors. Oh and we find out how a magician ended up hosting a food show in the first place.

Justin also shares his wedding with us. He married Jill a couple of years ago in a ceremony that was both unique and romantic. The couple also threw in a little magic… The video of their first dance is mesmerizing. Suspend reality for a bit and let Justin bewitch you with his story!

Behind all successful people are those who get little if any recognition. The Bob and Tom Show has producer Dean Metcalf.

Dean joined the show as an intern in 1988 and never left.  In fact as the producer of the show his role is critical.  But just what does a producer do?  Dean will enlighten us.

He is also the voice behind many of our characters including, Jumbo the elephant, The Pope, and many nameless accents and on the fly call ins.

We learn how the Godzilla bit started, how he is a genius at editing on the fly, the birth of the Deans and more. What does an average morning look like for Dean?  What is it like to work with Tom?  We also veer away from The Bob and Tom show to talk about his incredible guitar collection.

Dean has amazing stories about his first guitar, his most expensive guitar, and his most cherished. Not only does Dean collect guitars he is an incredible player. He is a member of several bands including The Electric Amish, The Tempos, The Turnip Seeds, Area Code 812, and a couple of bluegrass ensembles.

In his spare time he collects Presidential memorabilia. How did that start? He has even acquired a couple of actual life size wax dummies of Presidents Grover Cleveland and Franklin Pierce. Where does one even buy a wax dummy of a former president? You will learn.

A fascinating look at a guy who rarely gets the attention he so deserves.

Our favorite sommelier is back! This time Arthur is talking holiday drinks. Did you know that champagne has to come from France? Most of the “bubbles” found on store shelves in America is of the sparkling wine variety. Find out which are Arthur's favorites.

The other big drink now is bourbon. We talk bourbon and more bourbon. We also discuss expensive wine, I mean very expensive wine. Is it worth the price? What was the most expensive bottle Arthur has ever shared?

And we can't talk drinks without talking hangovers. Are there any good hangover cures? We find out. Also Arthur and restaurateur Ed Rudisell started their own podcast called Shift Drink. Their show has prompted some rather unusual travels to places like Amsterdam, Paris, and Alsace France.

I would be remiss if I didn't say Arthur has some amazing and unbelievable tales from his adventures. Cheers to a wonderful Holiday Season! Enjoy!

Ooh that voice so distinct and smooth! World renowned motivational and business speaker Scott McKain is my guest this week. Scott has a remarkable ability to captivate and motivate anyone.

With a passion for business and bestselling books to back him up, Scott wows crowds with his dynamic presentations. We learn how he has become one of the best in the business. With a surprising start in not only radio but Future Farmers of America or FFA. As the state of Indiana FFA chapter president he took to the stage giving speeches all over the country.

After college hear how Scott met the famed film director Werner Hertzog. Hertzog was so impressed he asked Scott to play a villain in the movie “Stroszek”. Which was named one of the 50 great movies in the history of cinema by film critic Roger Ebert.

That role lead to a syndicated entertainment segment on 80 television stations for a decade and a stint as an anchorman for a CBS affiliate.

And then came the speeches, 7 books, and the founder and owner of several businesses.

Scott shares with us how to make your business stand out and some of the tricks to breaking into the speaking world. Are you one of the millions who suffer from public speaking? Well, Scott has help for you too!

A gifted storyteller Scott shares some amazing tales with us. Like his chance meeting with a taxi driver in Jacksonville, FL and the hunt for cuff links on a Sunday night at closing time. Both are not to be missed.

I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to sit down with Mr. McKain and learn some tips from the best of the best. I am pretty sure he will be as informative and helpful to you as well.

Britt, Tiffany and I are back with another fabulous edition of Sh*t with Britt. This episode lands us in Tiffany’s newly renovated kitchen (very jealous) complete with yummy snacks and plenty of prosecco.

We start by talking about one of Tiffany’s sons, Gage, who is 13 and waiting for his mom to turn back on his “Call of Duty” game. Do you edit your kids time on electronic devices? Tiff does and we find out how and why.

We also get an update on Briggs her eldest who had a scary incident that was discussed on an earlier podcast. He has decided on a college for next year and we reminisce about our own days of higher education. I may not have attended college for any length of time but I still pledged a Fraternity. Yes I said fraternity. Rho,Rho,Rho!

Oh and we also find out that Tiffany is against selfies. (she sounds like such a mean mom, ha) And what would this ADD podcast be without throwing in some serial killer talk, teeth whitening, holiday traditions and the first male to visit the show!

I think that about covers it. Honestly, I am not sure because when the prosecco is flowing and Britt is involved you never know. Guess you just have to listen.

I hate to break this to some of you but Donnie Baker isn’t real. There I said it! He is however, the brainchild of the talented stand up comic and professional broadcaster, Ron Sexton.

On the podcast we find out how Ron began his career. He didn’t just jump into calling The Bob and Tom Show with character voices. He got a start very early in middle school doing sports reports for the Franklin Central High School radio station in Indianapolis. He knew pretty quickly that radio was something he wanted to pursue.

Ron continued to follow his passion while attending Butler University mainly doing play by play and sports reporting. Which led him to covering sports for an Indianapolis TV station. He quickly learned that TV wasn’t his thing and took a job with the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts. It would be an executive position in the broadcast department complete with a company car and steady employment.

His suit wearing days were numbered though when he was approached by Indy sports legend Mark Patrick. Mark offered Ron a full time job that would put him back “on the air” for Fox Sports Radio. A show that ended up being ahead of its time featuring a heavy dose of comedy over hard hitting sports.

After a 3 year run the program ended and that’s when Ron started to call into The Bob and Tom Show. His impressions are many, Tony Soprano, Charles Barkley, Jim Rome, Morgan Freeman the list goes on and on. Along with these famous impressions Ron has created the long running characters, Kenny Tarmac, Floyd the Trucker and of course Donnie Baker.

We talk about how Donnie evolved on the show, the creation of his band the Pork Pistols, and his new found fame on the internet. My favorite segment is when we talk about comedic heroes. Especially the late great Tim Wilson! Ron has some special memories to share about this wonderful comedian. (many in Tim’s voice which Ron has DOWN).

Things you also learn on this episode: Ron is an excellent high school baseball coach. He LOVES music and would like to open for a famous rock star! And yes, he has a hidden talent! All you have to do is listen to find out. State Law!

Drew Hastings’ road to politics was gravel and a bit bumpy. After spending 13 years in Hollywood he yearned for a less hectic life. He returned to Ohio were he had spent his formative years. But instead of a big city like Cincinnati or Cleveland he decided to buy a small farm in rural Hillsboro.

Determined to make his town more vibrant he ran for mayor. And to the surprise of many was actually elected. This tall, well dressed man with the rock n roll hair proved to be quite a competent leader.

During his tenure his sleepy little town has been spruced up and made financial more sound. However, after finishing his second term he will not seek a third. We find out why and how the last years in office have changed him.

In this hodgepodge of a podcast we jump around from his start in comedy to women’s rights and from polo to paintball. (You HAVE to listen it will make sense.) Drew also gets a bit serious while discussing his marriage of almost 4 years and coming to terms with his own death.

Sprinkled amongst his stories of the shredding business that got out of hand and the polo mallet earring he used to wear we meander into technology. What is it like raising a child in this ever changing fast paced world? We even hear from my social media director/promotions person Katy who’s approach to technology and social media is a complete 180 from mine or Drew’s.

Other tidbits: discover what career Drew really wanted, the name of his national silver medal paintball team, and what’s next for this smart talented mayor.

Like many artists he is anxious to get back at being creative 24 - 7 with many projects in the works. Including, a book, storytelling tour and more.

Since the early 80’s Ace Cosby has been a staple in the lives of many rock and roll radio fans. He dominated the airwaves in central Indiana for over 30 years.

Not only was he an amazing radio air personality, music director and assistant program director he was a great friend to many of the classic rock bands of the 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s. Including; Kiss, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Sammy Hagar, Quiet Riot, Styx and so many more. And on top of all that he has been one of my dearest friends.

Not only did he help me get my job at WFBQ (which led me eventually to Bob and Tom) but we have shared more adventures than should be allowed in a lifetime. Like the time we went to the Playboy Club in Lansing Michigan with Kiss members, Gene Simmons, Paul Stanley and Bruce Kulick. Or when I played house mom to Ace Cosby and Off Your Rocker the band that would practice in my basement and infuriate all of my neighbors. Twice drawing a visit from the police.

But the more interesting stories are all Ace’s. Learn who is the nicest guy or gal in rock and roll. Find out how Ace broke into the radio business. His encounter with Michael Bolton that in a way actually effected my life. His “date” with a Playboy playmate that came back to haunt him later in life. The almost proposal involving a Jon Bon Jovi concert in Atlanta.

Find out what it is like to hang with the Jack Blades of Nightranger and Tommy Shaw of Styx. And then to have your whole world come crashing down with a massive corporate radio house cleaning.

Ace has lived quite the life and thanks to Tom of The Bob and Tom Show (who makes a brief appearance on this podcast) he is back for round two. Ace is the definition of a legend and we are damn happy to have him back on the air where he belongs!

“When was the last time you did something for the first time? “

I heard those words for the first time in a documentary at the Heartland Film Festival entitled “Live Adventurously” featuring Kate Nolan and her wife Danielle Wolter-Nolan. Together they own and run a company called DNK Presents which takes everyday folks on the adventures of a lifetime. From couples trips to discover the dinosaur tracks in Moab Utah, to an 8 mile trek down into the South rim of the Grand Canyon into the Havasupai Indian Reservation, to a yoga retreat in Guatemala. Kate and Danielle do it all.

Not only do they work for companies and retreats but they have also taken to helping others through their women’s adventure contest. This contest was the basis for the documentary that I stumbled on and cannot forget.

Four women were chosen from a group of nominations for a 4 day backcountry adventure. All of the women have a story and they all finished the weekend much stronger than they started both mentally and physically. This first contest started in 2016 and has now become an annual event. The 2017 adventure is being worked into a feature film and nominations for the 2018 adventure begin on January 1st.

Kate and Danielle share their top thrills, the things they WILL NOT do and adventures yet to be discovered. These two could motivate even this “set in her ways” gal to get off the couch and onto a mountain bike. Well, maybe…

This Halloween I decided to revisit the Friday the 13th with the ultimate Jason, Kane Hodder. I co-hosted this episode with Josh Arnold.

Before I bring Jason back from the dead, I talk with my producer, Brad Shoemaker, about a new venture he is working on called the "Don't Flinch" podcast. Think of it like the old 30s and 40s radio horror dramas. Find out the multiple ways you can participate.

 

Don't Flinch is looking to raise funds to buy scripts, pay for voice talent, and some new equipment for sound design work. Their first episode is online now. We would love it if you had a few dollars you wanted to throw at this project to help Independent artists get their stories told.

If you're the creative type and think you can write a good script, you can submit your script on the Don't Flinch website.

Now back to Kane, the ultimate Jason Voorhees.

I am quick to admit I have never seen a Friday the 13th movie. However, that didn’t stop me from sitting down with the man, who many feel is the best actor to ever portray Jason Voorhees, Kane Hodder. For this episode I brought along my cohort and horror movie expert Josh Arnold to share his expertise.

Kane’s story is compelling, from a childhood where his teen years were spent on the Marshall Islands in the South Pacific. Then becoming a stuntman in Hollywood and working on shows like Wonder Woman, The Incredible Hulk, Dukes of Hazard and too many movies to list. (Safe to say if a movie had action in it, Kane was one of the stuntmen.)

Early in his stunt career he suffered a major burn injury over 50% of his body which had an incredible impact on his life. He now does work with burn centers across the country to help others. And of course, his path would eventually lead to acting. Fans don’t worry we do talk horror and movies and his run in the successful Friday the 13th Series. (This is where I start getting scared….)
He also touches on other famous “killers” he has played. And recently Kane was asked to reprise his role as Jason for the Friday the 13 video game. It’s a fascinating process to do motion capture for a game. And lets not forget he is also a part of a paranormal group called The Hollywood Ghost Hunters. Does he really believe in ghosts? We not only find out the answer to that question but also to what scares him. And learn about his latest film, a horror comedy, called “An Accidental Zombie (Named Ted)”. The premise of which is quite funny if not a bit unsettling for a horror novice like me.

I started out scared of Jason and ended up in awe of Kane! Enjoy!

To find out more about Kane Hodder go to: KaneHodderKills.com or HollywoodGhostHunters.com and don’t forget to check out his documentary:

Let’s face it cancer SUCKS! In one way or another we have all been effected by this horrible disease. My guest this week has lived through some of the scariest words ever uttered: “you have cancer”. Vince Todd was diagnosed with Hodgkins disease (a blood cancer) at the tender age of 26. He shares with us what it was like to hear his diagnosis and enduring the 7 months of chemotherapy that followed. Halfway through the treatment he was gifted Lance Armstrong's book and became inspired to help others like Lance did with his LIVESTRONG foundation. So, he and his wife Cindy threw a party hoping to raise 10,000 dollars. They called on family and friends and brought in close to 45,000 dollars that first year! The Heroes Foundation was born and now they annual “beer kegger” has turned into a 700+ gala and 4 other annual events. This years “An Evening With Heroes” will be held on January 20th 2018 at the JW Marriott in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana. The special guest speakers is Samantha Smith, widow of Butler basketball standout Andrew Smith who lost his battle with non-Hodgkin lymphoma in early 2016. Money raised will help in three areas, Research, Prevention and Support. So dress up, get a babysitter and make it a weekend getaway to help others. Vince is a 17 year survivor and proving that cancer doesn't always win. In fact sometimes it is the reason to throw a really awesome party.

Dave Dugan, probably best known as the voice Bart McAlister as well as many other characters from the Bob & Tom Show over the years, joins us in the studio. 

We talk how he began his radio career, what led him to LA for comedy and voiceover work, his entrance to the Bob & Tom Show, a couple of funny stories from some Bob & Tom trips and also his latest comedy tour "Dugan's Aren't Losers".

We hope you enjoy the show.

I don’t know about you but I have been in a bit of a funk lately. When that happens I call on Dr. Will Miller! Sit in on my “free” session. We discuss the horrible tragedies that have been occurring nationwide. How do we cope with “bad news” that is forced upon us from every angle? His answer, relationships. We can not hope to be anxiety free without the help of friends and family. And in some cases your friends are your family. Never take that for granted and surround yourself with your “village”. Set down your devices and spend some quality time with the ones you love. It can work wonders to relieve anxiety and the feeling of isolation. We also dip into talking about death. Not a ha ha subject but one that all of us will face. I have a great deal of trouble dealing with this issue. Sound like you? Let Dr. Will help. We finish up with a wonderful metaphor for life using the PBS series Downton Abbey as a model. I felt so much better after our visit. I hope you do as well.

You may know him from The Late Show with David Letterman where Bill Scheft served as a writer for 24 years. However, there is much more to this brilliant former stand up comedian. I spoke with Bill recently via Skype from his home in NYC and we had a lot to catch up on. Since his last visit on The Bob and Tom Show Bill had lost his job following Letterman’s retirement. An even bigger blow was dealt when his wife, a pioneering figure amongst female comics, Adrianne Tolsch died after a long illness. We start the show talking about these two important topics. And not without a few laughs even when the subject is far from funny. Dealing with grief is such an individual process and Bill is gracious enough to share how he is coping. I can give you a hint. He is blessed with a wonderful support group including friends and family. Oh and the 29 yr old niece who now shares his apartment complete with a pet bunny named Albert. (yes there is a story there)

The novelist, Bill Scheft announces his latest project: “Is It Everything I Said”, Tommy Dash Apologizes. A collection of installments featuring a fictionalized stand up comic named Tommy Dash. Stories based on real situations either he or other comedians have encountered in their careers. Then we discuss music. His band The Truants performs in and around NYC playing British Invasion music and nothing after 1967. They DO NOT play “Do the Freddy” by Freddy and the Dreamers. (Take that Tom Griswold!) And they are available for your private party! Find out more at thetruantslive.com. Bill shares a great Paul McCartney story and touring with the band Tower of Power. Bill is now working on 2 projects for satellite radio including a podcast interviewing comics about relationships. I have been blessed in my life to meet amazingly talented people and Bill Scheft is at the top of the list. Enjoy!

A former Marine, we talk about what it was like coming from military life to become a comic. The steps in between, some of his jobs and what made him realize he could do this.

I recently had the opportunity to drag out the microphones on a Girls Night Out. 7 of my best girlfriends and I met up at a local Mexican restaurant. After, several rounds of margaritas the inhibitions were lowered and some pretty funny stories emerged. (and yes we took Uber-DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE) We discuss, sex, how some met their husbands, dating at a certain age, and drunken antics. Find out which of my friends has great t*ts. Yes, we refer to them a lot. Frankly this show is a glimpse into what women talk about when men aren’t around and they have had one too many. I hope you enjoy!

Ron Capps is the current NHRA FC World Champion in the NAPA Auto Parts Dodge Charger R/T! A crown that eluded him 4 times before 2016. One of the only titles he has still not claimed is the US Nationals Title. This year, 2017, I sat down with Ron in the NAPA Auto Parts trailer in the midsts of his very busy pit and we talk about “the big one”. Even with a World championship under his belt, he wants Indy! Ron shares his love of a sport he was literally born into. Dad was a driver and worked on cars not only for himself but friends. Ron grew up hanging with his Dad and helped to work on cars before he ever became a driver. If you have never been to a drag race in person it is something to experience. Even as a spectator you can feel the power. The ground shakes, the air smells of burning nitro and the sound! For a little under 4 secs your heart skips a beat and you hold your breath. If you are the driver its magnified by throwing in G forces. 6 g’s on the start and 7 to 8 g’s when the shoot pops out to help stop you. Ron walks us threw that feeling and what happens when your parachute doesn't deploy. A scary scenario that happened as last years US Nationals. We also find out about Ron’s love for other forms of racing, heroes, UFC fighting and Rock n Roll. When we recorded this interview it was the Saturday of race weekend. On Monday afternoon Ron lost in the Final Round at Lucas Oil Raceway at the 2017 US Nationals to J.R. Todd by .026th of a second. We will be watching and cheering for Ron the rest of the season as the Countdown to the Championship begins…
