The Pod Squad




Jersey Mike, Host + Rad Dude


Mike was born and raised on the mean streets of  Phillipsburg, NJ and now resides in Memphis, TN. It was here, in Memphis, that he made his radio debut for CBS990 AM (KWAM). Mike's the brains and mouthpiece behind all that is good in this podcast. Not the bad. Just the good. Remember that. It's vital to his ego.

"Detroit" Keith Cruze, Producer. Not Rad.


Keith was born in Detroit, MI before eventually sauntering his way down to Memphis, TN. An avid sports fanatic and movie trivia buff, Keith also works for NASCAR's Martin-McClure racing and is probably Taylor Swift's #1 hater.

Elise Gartwright, Rad Dudette


Elise was born in Nashville, TN.  She's a digital marketing ninja. Social media wizard. She will maximize your ROI, minimize your CPL, and superglue your stickiness. All opinions are Elise's and not necessarily shared by reasonable-minded people nor her benevolent corporate overlords. What is she doing hanging out with Mike? Good question. We all have our flaws.

Thal Martin, Rad Dude


This lazy-ass b*tch went from Newark, NJ to Phillipsburg, NJ to Tampa, FL. Dude owns a farm. No lie. Fucking guy found a piece of rope and now he thinks he's a cowboy. Thal and Mike bonded over their mutual love for the Wu-Tang Clan and Dave Chappelle. They also used to work together and once poisoned a co-workers drink with an entire bottle of Visine eye drops.
