Episode 35: "With a Little Grit and Bravado" [Guest: Emilio Sparks]
Emilio Sparks is a radio personality, producer, and podcaster who has seen more good fortune and breaks come his way through his life so far and has built up a cult fanbase of average joes and industry insiders alike.

That's the central theme of today's episode.
