Foreign Exchange Guest & Greg Hahn

[display_podcast]My family recently hosted a German teacher as part of an exchange program for three weeks. Not a foreign “student” exchange, but teacher. My wife is a teacher as well, so the two of them – my wife and Simone - have a lot to talk about.At first, I was very nervous about the whole affair.

[display_podcast]I am on the road with my buddy Tim Hawkins. Even though it’s the eighth time together on air, it still feels new, despite our large body of work, as they say in the biz.

[display_podcast]A while back, I was in Fresno. I was in an elevator just as the doors were closing.
