8 - Mike Bonner Skips The Small Talk

Mike Bonner covers Mississippi State University sports for the Jackson Clarion-Ledger in Starkville, Mississippi, which is far from Boston, Massachusetts, his hometown. He and I haven't seen each other in more than two years since we worked together for a few months in Iowa, but we talk constantly because this is 2015 and managing that is increasingly easy. 

But when we were both somehow invited to the same wedding, we wasted no time catching up. In this episode, one of my absolute favorites of the season so far, Mike and I talk about making peace with the past, how technology can sustain relationships, and how he became a groomsman at the aforementioned wedding without ever having met the groom.

There are more episodes left (!!!) before the finale. If you'd like to subscribe so The Middle comes to your phone or computer automatically, the show is available on iTunes, Overcast, Stitcher, TuneIn, Mixcloud, and a few more places. I'd also recommend listening from the beginning, if you have the time.

If you're an iTunes subscriber and have a few spare minutes, give the show a rating - it really helps me out. Thanks for listening.
