DIAR Episode #022
Back for a second round, Mike chats with Angriest Trainer Vinnie Tortorich. They talk about an award nomination for Vinnie's audio book Fitness Confidential. The conversation then turns to podcasting. They even delve into the differences between the old-fashioned radio days and modern technology. How do people break through the noise of the Internet? They also recall their initial attempt at blogging. Later, they discuss the merits of actress Sarah Michelle Gellar. The conversation then turns to Serena Scott Thomas, Vinnie's girlfriend who infamously appeared in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. That leads to talk of the hottest women of the 70s and 90s, their respective "coming of age" decades. Was Jennifer Anniston the queen of the 90s? They then argue that Lisa Kudrow was the dark horse of the Friends trio. Sheryl Crow also gets thrown into the mix. They then get into Vinnie's infamous Oprah appearance. His show was so memorable, the Oprah Network did a Where Are They Now segment some 20 years later. Was Vinnie going for the cougars before it was even a thing? They also chat about Vinnie's mention on the Opie and Anthony Show. Somehow, Vinnie became entangled with Ian Smith and a weight loss competition. Roland Campos decided to go with Vinnie's method. Vinny Testaverde, despite Smith's insistence, had nothing to do with it. Later, they talk about French influences. The chat then turns to cross-country travel. The tourism talk includes a shout to the Amateur Traveler Podcast by Chris Christensen.
