Guests & Co-Hosts
Kevin O’Neill is our Wednesday morning sports guy. His segment emphasizes what happens off the field as much as what happens on the field. All businesses have their intrigue, but the inner workings of sports organizations find their way into the public domain frequently. Unless a rant from the Chief spills into Kevin’s segment (not an unusual occurrence), he will highlight some of those sports related business issues; but be advised that those highlights usually come with an opinion.

Mark Painter is the Founder and Host of the ‘History of the 20th Century‘ podcast. Mark is a lifelong resident of Pennsylvania. The last time he studied history formally was in the eleventh grade at Pottsgrove High School, and that was a very long time ago. He is a gray-haired, white European straight Christian man, but not upper class, so, yay, diversity.
