Podcasters Are Not Your Role Models

Humble and Fred Are Not Your Role ModelsI just caught up on the recent controversy involving my friends Humble and Fred. I have a few thoughts on the subject.

Humble and Fred have been podcasting daily for almost three years now. They sign up sponsors who pay actual money. At some point, I have to figure out how to do this for Toronto Mike'd, but I digress...

Their newest sponsor is Ashley Madison. Ashley Madison's slogan is "Life is short, have an affair". The boys did what they do when a legal company offers them cash and espoused the virtues of this service. In other words, they celebrated a company that enables and encourages affairs.

This has rubbed many the wrong way. Humble and Fred present themselves as folksy everymen and hearing them push Ashley Madison's services initially seems a little off-brand. Nobody wants to hear Fred telling listeners you can discreetly cheat on your wife in less than 48 hours.

I get it, but I also know Humble and Fred personally and talk to them often. I don't think there's a legal business on the planet they'd turn down. I don't think Humble and Fred make good morality role models nor do I think they should assume such a role.

These are guys who celebrate the fact they'll take donations for a food bank and bring home all the good stuff. When Fred's not returning used items to Costco, Humble's talking about his visit to an adult spa or driving while high. These guys put it all out there, as raw as ever, and that's what makes their show work.

But they're not role models, and if you look up to them as such, that's on you, not them. And if you don't like hearing them espouse the virtues of Ashley Madison, you don't have to listen. But if this is the straw that broke the camel's back, I'd question how closely you've been listening these past few years...

Use Ashley Madison's services if you wish, but don't do it because Humble and Fred told you to. Because life is short, and Humble and Fred are not your role models.

Who Should I Interview on Toronto Mike'd?

Who Should I Interview on Toronto Mike'd?I've been podcasting since August 2012 and have 85 episodes in the can. Until this year, episodes were me and my friend Rosie shooting the shit about current events and happenings in our lives. That was a lot of fun, but then Rosie got a job a million kilometres away.

In 2014 I started doing two types of episodes:

  1. One-on-one interviews with public figures I was interested in
  2. Fun chats about current events and pot pourri with my buddy Elvis

Although there were one-on-one chats with Humble and Fred in 2013, having a famous person join me in my studio is primarily a 2014 thing. So far this year I've spoken with Jonathan Torrens, Todd Shapiro, Alan Cross, Jason Agnew, Jeremy Taggart, Greg Brady, Bingo Bob, Barb DiGiulio, Jim Richards, David Marsden, Neil Morrison, Jeff Marek, Down Goes Brown, and Erin Davis. I've enjoyed each one of them.

I'd like to continue shooting the shit with my buddy Elvis, whenever he can drop by, but I'd like to have more interesting one-on-one convos with public figures of interest to me. Over the next couple of months I will be sitting down with George Stroumboulopoulos, Mark Hebscher, Jim Lang, Raymi the Minx and 88.1 PD Adam Thompson. But who else should I add to that list?

Let me know who I should ask, and bonus points if you know them personally or know someone who knows them and can help broker the deal. And no, I haven't heard back from Maestro yet, but I'm not giving up. If you know him, tell him to do my show!

And if you want to go back and hear these chats, they're all archived here.
