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].

    I remember reading about Mark’s airport story in the Fresno Bee as a kid. Security was chasing him around and he slammed tying his shoe. This was when Mark was new hot sh@t at Vision. I cut that sucker out and had it on my wall for years. Pretty awesome.

    Damn, such a great interview…when TIM stops interrupting!!! Advise for TIM, re-listen to your interviews, become aware of how often you interrupt and how much it sucks for the listener, learn to listen to your guest, and hopefully you’ll develop into a better interviewer. Hint: when Gonz changed the topic a dozen times while you’re talking, you were talking too long.

      he’s probably already listened to his own interviews and found it unbearable because Mark kept on interrupting him.
