We are joined by Glenn “The Geek” Hebert from the Horse Radio Network. Glenn has appeared on the show many times and always brings gold. Today he is sharing insights into choosing and working with co-hosts. He also talks about a new podcast he is working on and how he is getting to do TONS of free adventures for free – because of his podcast.

Because of His Podcast – He Went on a Cruise

Glenn was able to get enough of his audience to join him on a cruise. He thought it would be hard with everyone trying to talk to him, but they had a great time networking together. He used one of his guests to help others who had never gone on a cruise (and she got a free ticket). In addition to that free ticket, Glenn had two additional free tickets.

Glenn shares some tips on having a cruise with your audience.

5:00 Glenn also was also asked to do a presentation for media people

Why You Shouldn't Always Put a Ton of Emphasis on Stats

Danica Patrick did not finish (wreck?) in 16% of her races

She was in 191 races and won 0

She only lead any of her races .12 percent of the time

Best finish was 24th in 2016 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series

She has a strong fan base and has been voted the IndyCar Series Most Popular Driver from 2005 to 2010, and the NASCAR Nationwide Series Most Popular Driver in 2012

Patrick was voted the Favorite Female Athlete at the Kids Choice Award in 2008, 2012 and 2013.

One more thing….
