286 - Jude Angelini (Author and Radio Personality)

Jude grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, near Pontiac, Michigan. He tells it like it is. He brings the same no-bullshit attitude to his writing, his radio show on Eminem's Sirius XM station (The All-Out Show), and his conversation. Same guy. Same voice. Same authenticity. He's the author of two books, Hyena and Hummingbird. Either one would make a wonderful gift for your mother-in-law. Get em! Download this episode. Music: "Fast Train," by Gasoline Lollipops.
