On the 2nd half of the show, I welcomed Jim Sweeney in studio. Jim is the creator of the Trademarked MIKE cartoon sports character which has gained great traction in the media as well as through his many blogs and comics. He has recently launched a podcast to bolster the character and is available on iTunes and Stitcher radio and called MIKE on Sports. This witty creation is unique in that it is the only character that transcends all sports and through Jim’s creative stories, skits and posts has grown in popularity to the point that major networks have taken notice and have begun extending him offers to nationalize this character on the grand stage. We discuss some of the many comics (36 MIKE Sports Comic Books) as well as a few of his over 650 blog posts on this show and Jim gets his creativity and humor across to the audience very well. Jim’s inspiration for this character is to make him a household name such as the Aflac Duck or Geico Gekko and he is well on his way to doing just that. Learn more about this character via his podcast on iTunes and Stitcher radio under MIKE on Sports and also visit his website/blog at http://www.theemike.com. eBooks are also available on Amazon.Com.
