Follow me here. My podcast closely emulates Jay Mohr's MOHR STORIES. Jay lands a Fox Sports Radio gig and creates JAY MOHR SPORTS. This show has the TWITTER HAT TRICK CONTEST, where listeners live tweet jokes to win prizes. These listeners become an entity all their own, with the wacky banana time ensuing even when Jay Mohr Sports is off air. Brad and Cobb then begin a podcast about the TWITTER HAT TRICK CONTEST, and now they are my guests to discuss all of this silliness. Do yourself a few favors. Listen to Jay Mohr Sports > Follow #jaymohrsports on Twitter > laugh your ass off > Listen to THE TWEETING MOHRRIOR PODCAST at YOGURTEATER.COM.

The man of the house calls in to worship his gal, which was kind of awesome to hear. Check out her band's music and give a like HERE!
I love when a podcast changes me from ALOOF ASS to FULLY ENGAGED. I sit with Lucipher and Eric to discuss the conception, production eminent premiere of their short film RAVENOUS: YOU'RE THE MAIN COURSE. We get into a little spirituality, how Joshua Smith and Aeon Cruz drove the work, and the potential for the short to become a feature length. Check out the madness at RAVENOUSZOMBIEMOVIE.COM!
Brett Tenza joins Rob and I on a Positivity Friday to talk about working hard, making music and gettin' ass. Our hotline makes a debut with calls from Eric Smith and DJ Dimes.

One of my best and oldest friends closes out the Denver tour with some silliness. We talk POGS, his time in the Air Force, and the dangers of social media.
Author Jt Sather was the first guest to find this podcast through a Google search, so of course I had to talk to him. His book HOW TO SURVIVE WHEN THE BOTTOM DROPS OUT is a autobigraphical cautionary tale, and his stories and demeanor really make you root for this book to hit big. BUY THE BOOK HERE!
Driven. Bubbly. Stunning. Reasons I hope my association with Candies is quite long-term. We meet in Cherry Creek to talk Inkspired Magazine coming up to its print form, her family's influence, and how she is going straight to the top.CHECK OUT THE AWESOME SEXINESS AT INKSPIREDMAGAZINE.COM
In an unexpectedly cool turn, I go to TRADIOV STUDIO to chat with the man behind TrevorRocksDenver.com, Trevor O'Connor.

Hear him here at TREVORROCKSDENVER.COM!
Instead of a face-to-face, I decided to record my feelings.

Prime, Phathead, Pogue and crew drop by from over the hill to discuss the rap game in Colorado. They talk their vision, cliques, and I throw down a challenge for a new album by summer's end. Sorry about the audio, 3 mics for 7 people.
I was lucky enough to get a minute with Ancient Wind frontman, Roberto Inferno. Stick around to hear EATERS OF THE DEAD!
Dahlia is an amzing model with an even better slant on her work. We talk about the business, her many publishing accomplishments, and how tragedy and a giving spirit helped her refocus her efforts for the greater good.
It's always great to have someone on who is SO fired up about his craft. One of Portland's premiere scene DJ's tells about his grunge roots, how Burning Man opened the digital door, and how what began as a volunteer crew has become an army in the service of realizing his dream of electronic immortality. Hang after to hear Deformaty & Lightspeed- Just Calm Down!
Gun control and the direction of the country is discussed on a beautiful Martin Luther King Day. New York's laws, Colorado laws and the tactics of the NRA volleyed here.
Technical difficulties weren't able to stop the laughs thanks to John. We go over his late start to stand up, the end game, and his presence in the world of Kurt Metzger.
HERE...COMES..TITUSSSSSSS! Titus Machiavelli aka Mitch Helle calls for a lil cross-casting with pro wrestling on the table. We discuss our history of watching wrestling, our favorite eras, and he explains how he is attempting to Restore The Manager nearly 20 years after his dream was derailed by one asshole. TITUSMACHIAVELLI.COM
Ten years is a long time, and Mike has certainly been through alot in that time. We talk about his college and military prospects before focusing squarely on his marriage and divorce. Quite a story indeed, and not without its caution.
Ahhhhhhh...finally some fun, and the first guest from another podcast! Kitten from MMA-Freak.com calls in to break the topical streak of GFT. An abnormally knowledgable fight fan, the Kat and I discuss heavy metal music, our favorite fights, and we give some insight to UFC 157, the debut of Ronda Rousey! Follow her @kittenofchaos76 on Twitter!
I find these loner-casts highly theraputic, so strap in or tap out for a chat about one man's "Dark Knight Complex."
Off the cuff and out of the blue, we discuss guns, small town life, and alternative lifstyles.
The savage vocalist of Ancient Wind returns to GFT to give all his podcast fans exactly what they want - a hot beef injection.

Check out OCEANHEALINGGROUP.ORG if you would like to contribute!
The youngest, yet most grown-up guest to grace Respectable Sandwich brings a fun yet heavy vibe. Ella Jade has cancer, as told by her mama in episode #32. Disjointed to be sure, I clumsily wade thru her most recent doctor visit, what she hopes for her family, and she turns the tables on me a bit near the end. Thank you Ella Jade.
Private 1st Class Perry Sweeney stops in for a bit of a serious talk. Though we sidestep his involvement in The Vietnam War (for now), we discuss what provoked his interest in the military, his tenure as a police officer, and finish strong with views on gun control post-Sandy Hook.

Former model and local radio personality Kimberly Henrie joins me in studio. She walks me thru her early career, her voice over work, and we stumble across the sexy world of the SNEEZE FETISH! I also give her a bit of a rashing over the bumper that begins this particular show.
Mid-level local celeb Don Chaney makes his long-awaited (to me) appearance on GFT! We discuss stand up comedy, the future of terrestrial radio and podcasting, and I try to convince him to take a very personal, and BLUE turn with his act.
Just a brief vent after an awful tragedy.
A good friend of the show, Nick finally stops in for a hangout. We talk about racial profililng, the election, and the ins and outs of being adopted.

An old family friends reveals much about his life during this episode. Mr. Reeves talks about how Pearl Harbor affected him, his past as a miner, and the rise of his own mining corporation. An AMAZING chat.

More family history...

This was a fun one. We talk criminal law, Amy defines her "bases", and a misunderstanding is addressed.
Finally some silly fun...booze-hazed stories about the Roxie, and lots of hook up stories. The Tripod crew does not disappoint here.
My first attempt at cyber-networking yields a great chat with someone who has real love for the optical industry. Ms. Hobbs was the perfect guest for my first show discussing my day job making eyewear.

Its my first time seeing an old friend in a long while. We talk about the old nightlife, police drama, and how to find true love.
Texts and pictures and Facebook posts can't really do justice to my feelings about my boys moving away. Emotion and an old man's insomnia drive my monologue. Good luck gentlemen.

If you haven't already experienced the pitfalls of Facebook, let The Fall of Tenza be a lesson. The premise was sort of brilliant, I might add.
Brett meets "Chappelle's Show" co-creator Neal Brennan. This should have been a neat story...
In this fine installment, we talk about alternative money making strategy, accidentally marrying transexuals, and Rob tells how he saved yours truly from a prison-style beatdown at the hands of some large Nazis.
An afterthought of episode #29, this shows the idiocy of trying to actually produce a radio show. 8 minutes of M5 and I whining about how the funniest show ever didnt follow the structure we wanted.
I recount the story of the day I met "The Podfather", ADAM CURRY! Blame him for the continuance of this show:)
Opie and Matt Himself are in studio as Odin recounts his recent Amon Amarth concert. YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW IT WAS A SUNDAY!
Love and schnapps drive this tasty nugget of radio.
Like him or not, Rob actually bares his soul during this show. Some seriously heavy stories flow, and the both of us implore all listening to resolve any family beef. Remember, LA FAMILIA ES TODO! (family is everything)
Put a helmet on for this one. 3 1/2 hours of literally everything...alcoholism, assault, drugs and music.
When you click to listen, please note that this is a conversation with a woman who is a week away from knowing whether her child lives or dies. Alcohol fuels a very emotional bloodletting here, as JD and Shellie walk us down Ella Jade's path. I'm glad she would come chat while she is in this state, and maybe it can raise more awareness for other families who deal with this. Go to caringbridge.org/visit/ellajadedreameraulik for current updates.
It takes a while for two tired buddies to get rollin' on this play by play of Ancient Wind's Denver appearance. There is a failed move, a friend left behind, and I inquire about stand up comedy. Sorry my mouth and brain were completely disconnected.
This one rules...an audio 767-nosedive. Alcohol contributes to the antics, and we are joined by Damien Littlefair.
My first appearance on Odin's Friday Night Metal Show is made better because I had a PREPARED BIT! I suck.
Odin and Mexican't plug the promo video for Rammstein's LIFAD album.

The boys pump up a party...that will never happen.
It's The Dethalbum II WORLD PREMIERE! Well, it was for a day on Wikipedia.
I'm sick of being Mr. Nice Host. My very own grandmother stops by, and boy, do I put the screws to her! We chat about her origin, her two marriages, and she adds a few pieces to the family puzzle in my memories.
Odin has to try to corral members from Bludgeon Theory, Crowd The Fire, and Matt Himself during this show. My phoner comes too late to join in the gayness.
The title says it all...
Produced POORLY by MixMaster Mike, this clip will play in front of future FNMS posts. Pro-MO the ho-MO!
How can a show be 3 years in the making? It happens when a good friend moves away. Now that Seth is back, we rundown his time away. I trash him about money and talk about how I ruined part of his wedding.
The day Michael Jackson died, we had a show to do. Complete idiocy ensues, as usual.
My first real in-studio radio show. Metallica and ruining and old lady's day are the highlights.
Clips from a fun Friday Night Metal Show featuring a feud with a rival station.
In post #8, I mentioned that I had to make the choice to EDIT a show based on the ramblings of a guest. Half way through our religious discussion, Mr. Roberto decided to go on a very unnecessary, evil tirade that didn't add to the substance at all. I did find, however, that as awful as his hate-spewing was, its hilarious as a a stand alone piece with bleeps added. Enjoy.
After so much whining and crying, Rob returns for his VERY OWN show. We set most of the silliness aside and tackle something ultra-daunting: RELIGION! It's a showdown. Jehovah vs. Odin. In an arena setup by two complete morons. We give general overviews, compare some of the behaviors shared by a congregation and a kindred, and try to clear up some misconceptions about each. This is also the first time I had to EDIT THE PODCAST! More on that soon.
Two brief hangouts with this man made him a no-brainer must-have guest on the show. We have a nice long talk about the arc of his alcohol and drug use, a quick overview of my legal troubles, and a few crazy stories from Jizzy's haze days. There's also a missed connection and a fairly racist HOLY $#!+ moment. COCAINE'S A HELLUVA DRUG! Thanks so much, brother.
What a great opportunity for me and the show. I get a quick sit down with a man WORLD RENOWNED, "MR. FABULOUS" himself, THE CHARISMATIC BILL NOLAN! Even though this sounds like an announcer's intro to a heavyweight prize fighter, Bill is a knockout artist in his own right. A partner of The Williams Group, this one-two exchange includes adventure, a bit of religion, and what truly presents danger to a man in a suit while he visits Alaska. Thanks again, Mr. Nolan.
It's the first phoner podcast! Technology rules, and thats how I was able to chat with good friend and sworn enemy Chad Leny about his life in Florida, alcoholism, and what it means to be a great father.
I'm joined by Ancient Wind members Rob O'Leary and Jake Snyder for an inspiring chat about dads, music and what it takes to ride with The Wind!
