Today's show is nostalgic for me as I reconnect with an old Chicago Sports Radio Pal, Mike North. You can hear his excellent podcast Sticks and Stones here, as part of the podcast arena network.

Mike talks about his humble beginnings doing an NFL football handicapping radio show on a small foreign language station, and how he parlayed that into huge success in sports talk radio on Chicago's sports station The Score and nationally on Fox Sports Network.

We talk about Mike's favorite comics from Marvel The Rawhide Kid and Kid Colt Outlaw, plus a ton about classic movies from his favorite action heroes to the subtle brilliance of Glenn Ford.
