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.

Colin Levesque joins us every Friday during the football season to preview the Bears, Cardinals, Fighting Irish and more before sharing his best bets of the weekend. Growing up in Exeter, NH, Levesque is a die hard Boston sports fan who often cites February 3, 2002 as being one of the best and most profitable days of his life – this of course was the day Tom Brady and the Patriots shocked the sports world by upsetting the heavily favored St. Louis Rams in Super Bowl XXXVI. Colin has always had an interest in sports and handicapping and was the co-host of the High Motor Guy Podcast with longtime friend and fellow sports guy, Matty Weber. Mr. Levesque now lives in the Milwaukee, WI area with his wife and two boys.
Karl Denninger is an American technology businessman, finance blogger, and political activist, sometimes referred to as a founding member of the Tea Party movement.
Denninger was the founder and CEO of MCSNet in Chicago. Opened as Macro Computer Solutions, Incorporated in 1987, it expanded its service offerings in 1993 to become one of the area’s first commercial internet service providers. Among its customers was the Chicago Public Library, which relied on MCSNet for both internet access and web hosting. In 1997 he led a coalition of ISPs in setting up the Enhanced Domain Name System, a short-lived alternative DNS root which allowed registrants to add their own generic top-level domains. Denninger continued to run MCSNet until August 1998, when he sold it to Winstar Communications for an undisclosed amount. For his efforts, the Chicago Sun-Times dubbed him one of “the movers and shakers who brought Chicago into the Internet Age”. After the sale of MCSNet, he moved to Florida, where he began to devote more time to stock trading and political activism.
