The Story

You might think that the story of podcasting for 2GuysTalking starts in the early ’00s, when in reality, you have to go back more than 30 years for the whole story. In 1981. Raiders of The Lost Ark presented generations with one of the best movies ever created. That weekend, Mike and his life-long friend Carlo – were bowled over with how much craftsmanship, attention to detail and quality were put into and – in the back of Carlo’s Dad’s minivan – they talked about it on the way home to Carlo’s house and well into the night.

That was the first “2 Guys Talking” show, without there being a show. It was the first of many informal but always memorable conversations that Mike and Carlo still share today. Who would have thought those small, memorable chats with friends would lead to something so bold, in the future?

Lunchtime, Anyone?

Fast-forward to 2005. The advent of something called an ‘iPod” and shortly thereafter, something called ‘iTunes’ allowed people to craft their own online programs changing the foundation of “having your own show” forever. Mike Wilker­son and Brian Sirimaturos crafted a program called “The Lunchtime Gab” in which was a segment focusing on the hit Fox show, “24”. That segment eventually couldn’t hold the fun, detail and listenership that had grown over the several months and thus was born a new fan-based, outside-the-box discussion program about “24” called, The 24 Podcast. After a series of visits from elite guests that literally made the program, The 24 Podcast became the sparkplug to the concept of The 2GuysTalking Podcast Network.

The search for other unique, quality, engaging storytellers and professionals began. As the years went by, the library grew, the listenerships blossomed, and now The 2GuysTalking Podcast Network is a centerpoint for people looking for nostalgia, information, detail and fun.

With more than 9 million downloads each year, The 2GuysTalking Podcast Network has become a nexus of quality entertainment review, the showcase of specific skill sets and passions and has continued to build a legacy for not only the podcasts on the Network – but for the listeners of more than 50 programs that are a unique advertising platform for companies both large and small.
