We don’t really need to write much of an introduction for this one. Tim got the elusive Mark Gonzales mic’d up for the fifth episode of the Tim Pod, and this one is so good we decided to turn it into a two parter. What is normally #goodpod, has become #greatpod.

Don’t forget to check out the show highlights, the submitted questions, and the links and mentions from this week’s episode. And, as always, send shit for Tim to talk about next time here: [email protected].

    Good interview Tim. I wish you would have asked more about his biking like when he mentioned his Diamond Back growing up. I have never heard him mention that and it would have been great to hear more about that and also later when he mentioned biking with the stuff he does in Nyc. I agree with Frank too about talking less about yourself but I know you were just trying to get the conversation feel and that will come with more experience. Great interview can’t wait for part 2.
