The bulk of this episode was Tom trying to justify why he went into radio.  Which Tom, you ask?  Exactly.

Tom Mischke is a Minnesota writer, musician, and radio talk show host on WCCO NewsRadio 830 based in Minneapolis. He was formerly employed at City Pages, a Twin Cities alternative news, arts and entertainment publication. For 17 years he hosted The Mischke Broadcast on KSTP, until it was cancelled in December 2008. His show featured quirky regular callers, stream of consciousness humor, and experts on any topic he found interesting. Since 1998, Mischke has been the winner of the “Best AM Radio Personality” award given by the local weekly alternative newspaper City Pages nine times. Mischke hosted a daily webcast entitled In the Stream for City Pages from March 2009 until February 2010. He currently hosts The Nite Show weekdays 10 PM to Midnight on WCCO Radio.
